Loving the Red, White, and Blue July 2, 2013

Posted by Danielle in Crafts.

If you don’t already have it in your hands, now is a great time to pick up the Paper Temptress’ Patriotic Variety Package, which is already an awesome deal – and right now, you can pick it up at an additional 25% off!  For my card today, I used a variety of papers from this pack, and they really pop off the card.

I created this card using Dustin Pike’s Dudley Dragon image, colored with Crayola colored pencils and Gamsol as the blending agent.   He is matted onto papers from the Patriotic Package including Jupiter Red Text Mica/Metallic, Lapis Lazuli Mica/Metallic, and Cryogen White Text.   These are matted onto a plain white embossed card by DCWV.   These are just a few of the gorgeous papers that come in the package.  You should check the package out for yourself!

Here is a closer look at the sparkles that come through the gorgeous Mica/Metallic line!  They are even better to look at in-person.

The inside of the card also mimics the outside, with a computer-printed sentiment and usage of the same papers to frame it.  The subtle shimmer really livens up the card, both inside and out.

Hope you are having a much better day today than Dudley is!

This card is being entered into the following challenge:
