So I know Mardi Gras was Tuesday, making me two days late, but I don’t care, because any day is perfect for a boldly colored princess card. In all seriousness, the new sparkle blend Judy’s Royal Shine from Doodle’s Paper Playground was just meant to be blended with Mardi Gras colors.
I started by die cutting a piece of Green Metallic Foil cardstock with the Princess die set from Elizabeth Craft designs.
I added a sheet of acetate to the back of the foil cardstock and added the die cut outs of the ‘princess’ back into the ‘e’ and two ‘s’s. I also added the gold crown using gold washi tape sheets.
I added foam tape to the back of the cardstock, using creative pieces to help keep sequins in certain areas.
I then filled the inside of the cardstock with Judy’s Royal Shine sparkle blend. To help simply the flip of this large piece, I added a second sheet of acetate to help secure the blend.
On the card frame I added two strips of purple metallic foil cardstock and a blue metallic foil crown die cut. Then I adhered the shaker pouch over the card frame.
I finished the card by adding a few more sequins over the card frame plus the die cut metallic starts.
I love the look of the blend peaking through the die cuts.
I am sure this color palette was never how this blend was intended, but I just love how this one came out!
Let me know in the comments below what you think of the color palette. Until then, happy crafting.
