A Little Glitzy Romance

Hi there dear friends!!! Once again it is my privilege to share some more Glitz goodness with you! I've been having some fun exploring the romantic side of Glitz Design and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's the perfect time to get a little romantic!

In my first card, I chose the pretty pink Damask from the Love Nest Collection and added some black accents along with some fun embossed edges to add texture. I layered a Black Glitzer frame onto a rustic cream background that was brushed with some distress ink and then I layered the rub ons on top of the Glitzer. It is such a fun challenge to mix and match all the amazing Glitz elements!! All the layers made a gorgeous romantic medalliion!

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Papers: Damask
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Rub Ons
Glitz Design "Scarlett" Glitzers
Glitz Design Tulle
Glitz Design Giant Rhinestones: Pink, Black, Green

other supplies: cardstock: PTI rustic cream, Bazzill black; ribbon: Joann's; embossing folder: Stampin Up!; punch: Stampin Up!; stamps: Hero Arts Canvas Stripes, PTI Love Birds; Die: PTI Heart Prints Collection; Kaiser Craft Jewels; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Brushed Corduroy and Worn Lipstick, Memento Tuxedo Black
In my second card I pulled out the gorgeous Red Polka paper from the Scarlett Collection and I added some of the rub ons from the Love Nest collection. I just love how easily Glitz Designs Collections all mix and match so well together!!
I was looking for a simple, yet shabby chic feel for this romantic card. I crimped the Red Polka paper to add some texture, and then I let the rub on's speak for themselves!!! I think the Love Nest Rub Ons are my very favorite embellishment by Glitz Designs!
Supplies Used:
