Stampin' Up - Grungy

After speaking to and emailing my lovely friend and customer Lesley about my last card I made from Big Bold Birthday I came up with this today.  My friend reminded me of a class I taught a couple of years ago now, where we made icing from glue, flour and Stampin' Up re-inkers to ice a cake on a card. 

I gave it a go today and was really pleased with how this grungy card turned out.  The photo is not all that good again, but I think you can see the idea. 


I sprinked the top with Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin' Up very fine glitter) and made a button using Bashful Blue Designer Series Paper and a clear Stampin' Up buttom.  Its so easy, these button are the same size as our punches so all I did was to punch out a 3/4" circle, distress the edges with Soft Suede Ink and glued it with Stampin' Up Crystal Effects.

The main card was made using Soft Suede card stock and Bashful Blue Designer Series Paper.  The stamp set used was Big Bold Birthday.

Enjoy.

Happy crafting.
