Let's POP The Champagne

Because dear crafty friends,  today I have two cards featuring the Champagne Flutes Whispers to get us into a festive mood.  So lets start with an anniversary card... maybe for a golden anniversary, since I used gold has my primary color and teal has my secondary color.

I started by wrapping the edge of the card with some gold and silver glittery washi tape.  I love this stuff, but I have to warn you it's not very sticky.  I made this card yesterday and saw the tape was flitting at the corners when I took photos of it this morning :(

Here's a closeup of my gold glitter paper die cut Champagne Flutes Whispers.  Also in the background is a cut die Lucky Scallop Whispers die and I'll let you in on a little secret.  I didn't have any vellum on hand, so I used parchment paper.  But guess what? You can't glue, or tape  parchment paper (LOL).  So I ended up attaching the die cut w/a tiny staple and the dimensional adhesive on the back side of the flutes further secure the parchment paper die cut to the card.

Also used on this card are two gold glitter paper die cut Happy Sweet Wordlets and one teal glitter paper die cut Anniversary Express Banner.

My second card is a wedding card.  This time I die cut my Champagne Flutes Whispers dies from black glittery paper and added tiny pearls where the die cut holes are. I also die cut two doves from the Swirling Doves w Ring Whispers die and one Bride & Groom Sweet Wordlets die from white glittery paper.   All my projects for this release have glittery on them :)  
I hope you have enjoyed your time on the blog today.  The pattern papers for all of the cards featured today came from the 6x6 DCWV The Mariposa Stack.  Here's a quick look at the dies used on these cards:
Until next time... 


  1. Great card Mary! I love how you used so many different dies on one card!

    1. Thanks Lori, I love having misc dies the go with anything and everything, because I can tuck/add them into any project.
