cards on layouts

Today I am here to share another project I showcased in the Heidi Swapp *E* book that was released recently.  You can find it here and of course most importantly it is FREE!
I decided to create a layout using the Hello Today collection available at Michaels and soon to hit our shores in Australia at Spotlight.

I wanted to add an interactive element to the layout so I used one of the Color Magic cards (the star shaped card)  as part of my design.
I spritzed the front of it with Navy Color Shine , then added a sticker layered over vellum.

To the back of the card I added a piece of pattern paper from the 12x12 paper pad .

I then used some of the pattern paper and Ephemera to add layers.

For a fun element I added in an ephemera piece with a brad so it swings back and forth.

If you are from Down Under I hope you will be able to join Heidi on her Spotlight tour coming up in March. I hope to see you at some of these events.

One place you will see me, is here in Melbourne for a special Masters class with Heidi and Becky Higgins. What a treat that will be. See Spotlights FB page for all the details, you will not want to miss this ! I have seen Heidi's project and it is spectacular!
