Let's Celebrate!

Hey there!

Here on the west coast it's raining cats and dogs so we've had a lazy morning around here complete with pancakes and catching up on some tv shows.  But I couldn't let this day stay dull.  I knew I had to share a little sparkle with you.

A little while ago, Neat & Tangled had an Instagram sale (which by the way was amazing and intense! I definitely recommend checking out their next one).  I was lucky enough to pick up a few stamp sets which included the Party Dots stamp set.  I've had it sitting in my NBUS pile since it came in and just knew I had to pop it up with some gold embossing powder.

I embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set in the same embossing powder.  Next, I used my stitched rectangles dies to cut rectangles with my embossed card stock and a piece of vellum which I used to offset my card face.

I used some white card stock for my card base and cut a slightly smaller rectangle from some herringbone card stock to add some contrast.  I knew this card needed one more thing to finish it off, but I was finding sequins to be too heavy.  Then I pulled out this great gold thread that I had picked up but have yet to find a use for.  I'm so happy that I was able to make it work for this card.  So there you have it.  TWO NBUS products and a fun celebratory card to boot!
