Start Today with a Grateful Heart Greeting Card.

A Greatful Heart Greeting Card 1

I finished the fabby Gypsy Soul Laser Cut Chipboard pieces with a base coat of white acrylic paint then added several layers of metallic paints and sprays. Gold would be flashy and silver would be the wrong tone….so why not both? I love the vintage look and it coordinates so well with the patterned papers.

 A Greatful Heart Greeting Card 3
The chippies are layered with the papers and images.  Distressing the edges of the papers helps to add texture and spacers between builds in loads of dimension.

Choosing a complimentary patterned paper to add to the inside is a nice finished look.

These white flowers were altered with sprays and micro beads.
