Keep Calm and GLOW ON

Today I made a card using the Hero Arts “Glow Girl” stamp set. I think this is a charming stamp set to use for girls with sentiments such as “You GLOW girl”. Specifically for today’s card I’m using the “KEEP CALM AND GLOW ON” stamp.

At first, I had a hard time deciding on how to implement some “GLOW” on to this card finally decided on using some neon papers cut down into small strips as banners.

Next I stamped the sentiment near the bottom, since this would be a horizontal folding card (fold at the top). I stamped the image in some hot pink ink then clear embossed it while the ink was still wet. I think the next time I use this ink, it won’t be on yellow card stock since it didn’t come out as vibrant as I had hoped.  😦

Next I laid out the banners along the card and got started adhering them down to the card base.

As I adhered the banners, I trimmed them as I went. And that was it! Very, VERY simple card but was very bright with all of the busy colors going on.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment. I think it would have looked really neat to have the image popped up on some separate card stock instead.

Overall, I liked the card a lot. Very simple, but still very happy and bright!

Thanks for reading!
