AIRs Themed Project using Authentique paper Collection: Glistening

For this AIRs project I'll be using Authentique's new paper collection called "Glistening".  The card turned out a little frilly for me but fun.  The paper collection has everything you need to makes various cards.  Lots of paper choices, tags, etc.

"Winter in New England"

From IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®Memento™Dye Ink Dew Drop size ink pad | IMAGINE Crafts®GooseBumps™Texture Spray with a dauber top
Other Supplies
Authentique Paper Collection:Glistening|Sizzix Flower Die | Queen & Co. self adhesive pearls | One brown brad | Sewing machine with black thread (optional) | one white 5” by 7” blank white card | Aqua colored ribbon |Adhesive & Glue Dots


Cut Authentique paper to measure 5" by 7", glue to the front of the blank card.
Cut contrasting paper from the Collection to measure 5" by 3"; glue to the lower portion of the card.
Cut contrasting paper from the Collection to measure 5" by 1"; glue across the middle of the card.

Apply GooseBumps randomly all over the front panel and allow to dry.

Tear the image of the girl out of the Collection of papers, if desired sew black thread around the edges of the image; set aside.
Using a flower die, cut flower out using coordinating paper from the same collection.
Attach a brad to the center of the flower.
Tie ribbon around the left side of the card.  Glue flower down with glue dots.
Tuck the image of the girl under the flower and adhere with glue.  Take tags from the collection and edge them with Memento Dye ink using a dew drop sized pad, I used the Gray Flannel color.
Tuck the tags under the flower and adhere with glue dots.  Edge the entire card with Memento Gray Flannel ink pad.
Attach three self adhesive pearls to the upper left hand corner of the card.

Beautiful paper for winter type cards of all sorts!  Thanks for stopping by, if you have time leave a comment, I love hearing from you.  Take care, talk to you soon~Renee

  1. Renee, this is awesome! Seriously, I love it...a lot because of the image and stitching! I do have to saw that I am an Authentique fan from way back, and this collection is beautiful. It has a certain vintage appeal, which I absolutely love. Well done!
