Chandelier Card

This easy card design is one of my favourites when you need a card in a hurry, as it suits quite a lot of occasions. It is also adaptable to different size cards.

Start with a basic piece of cardstock for your card. You can cut one yourself to the desired size or use a precut one like I did. Then rip a page from an old book that has that wonderful aged look. I keep a straight edge on the left side and hand tear the other sides to suit the size of the card.

Adhere the book paper onto the card using double sided tape. Keeping it towards the left side.

Then I used the Heidi Swapp Chandelier clear stamp with "black cherry" stazon ink. Place a scrap piece of paper underneath the card and stamp the design so it is slightly over the right edge of the card and the top of the chandelier touches the top of the card (when folded).

Then add Kaiser pearls in Chocolate, to the chandelier.

Add Making Memories Tiny Alpha Stickers for whatever occasion you need the card for.

All done...
