Queen Anne’s Lace, An Accidentally Blingy Card (Hey, it Happens)

This card was going to be relatively clean and simple, but once I had a small spot on the front that I couldn’t remove, I had to bling it up.
I started with Recollections 110 lb white card stock cut to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card front size. Then cut the Queen Anne’s Lace die out of it. I added a piece of 4 1/8″ wide by 5 1/2″ tall piece of More Mustard card stock from Stampin’ Up and glued it to the inside of the card front, so the circle would now have paper behind it. I laid the die back in place, and used washi tape to ensure it wouldn’t move, then used More Mustard ink from Stampin’ Up on a 1″ chip brush from Harbor Freight Liquidators to brush around the die. I decided it needed more color on the white card stock, so brushed the ink all over the card front. At this point, I ended up with a small splotch that I couldn’t figure out what to do with, so ended up gluing crystals from Hobby Lobby (Halloween collection) all over the front. I think I lost my mind, as I just glued those everywhere….I used tape runner from an ATG gun that stopped working, and laid the crystals on the tape then slid them off and it’s a great way to use up that tape and glue the crystals to the card front.
I used Impression Obsession Wishes and Concord and 9th Love You, Mean It stamp sets for my sentiments. And used Versafine Onyx Black ink and Ranger clear embossing powder with the Marvy Heat Tool (OK, that one died too, so I don’t recommend those tools, and am back to using my very inexpensive original blue model.)
On the envelope I used peg stamps from the Autumn Glory peg stamp set and also on the inside of the card to decorate it. You can find them at http://www.pegstamps.com.
