I’ve been seeing a lot of glimmer paste showing up on the old Instagram of late (this card caught my eye, and this one, too!) and thought I would give it a go and create a simple Valentine’s Day card for the hubs.

There is no rule that says you can’t give a man a shimmery card, at least not one that I know of. Plus, I call him babe a lot, so it’s all going to work out fine. This design is pretty clean and simple at its core and I’m really happy with how it turned out. I love a popped up white panel on a white card base!

I also created a simple little square envelope out of an A2 sized one, a little trick I learned from my friend, the one and only Gina K. Designs!

Here is the video showing you how I created this card project:

    Like this glimmmer paste technique. Never thought to create a color by using inks in the background.

    I love it!! It’s a little late to buy the glimmer paste for Valentine’s Day, but I’m definitely going to get some. And as always, your simple sweet style blows me away. Thanks, Cathy

      Thanks, Kay! I have another idea i’m going to try with this same idea, but a new design! Hoping to share this weekend!
