A Secret Glue Card Holder.......

Last week I found a card idea on splitcoaststampers that was a card with a lipstick inside it..... I couldn't find any instructions so I had a go myself.

The stamped image is from simply said and the cardstock is groovy guava. I cuttlebugged the front with the divine swirl embossing folder and used the slit punch and the 1/2" circle punch to finish this off after adding a glittered brad from the range.

I watercoloured the flowers by squeezing the lids of the ink pads and using my aquapainter.

When I put the insert in, I added some ribbon first so I could tie it together.

I stamped all over the insert with the 2 step flowers in the Simply Said set, in groovy guava and purely pomergranate inks.

I covered the glue sticks as well to make them more girly!!! :-)

I will do step by step instructions later for you, so check back and have a go.

Have a great day,
Jenny :-)xx

What a wonderful idea and what a lovely card. You could also use this for a lipstick as well for someone's birthday perhaps. How you even find these ideas are beyond me. I love looking through blogs but rarely find an idea that I could do until it's on your blog.
Keep up the good work and keep on blogging - I would be lost without your blog to look forward to each day - sad isn't it.
