Allsorts 491: Pearls and Gems

A new challenge has started at Allsorts, and this week our theme is Pearls and Gems, picked by Wendy. Wendy is also giving away a wonderful prize, so do come join us for a chance to win!

Penny Black Stickeroo // Hero Arts Special Birthday // Versamark Ink // Gold Embossing Powder // SU Itty Bitty Backgrounds - retired, but available on Ebay // Gold Cord - similar // 
Sticky Rhinestones - similar

This was a really quick card to make....the main image panel and butterflies are from a Penny Black Stickeroo sheet. The birthday sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. I added some gold cord and then of course the rhinestones to go with our "gems or pearls" theme. Somehow I ended up with an ink smudge, but I decided to use Stampin Up's old set "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" to "cover it up". I also applied some stickles glitter to the random dots.

I find stickeroos are perfect for quick cards, but just in case anyone is interested in them, I wanted to mention that these are not like "card toppers" which traditionally are made from card stock. These are a thin sticker, but work just as card toppers after you stick them to card stock. For example. the butterflies were stuck onto card stock, then I fussy cut around them and adhered to my card with glue dots. You can see more cards made with Stickeroos HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
