Extreme Makeover Card Edition #1

Welcome to the first release of Extreme Makeover Card Edition!
I used a set of cards that had a little window cut-out with a monogram inside...but not for long!

I stamped 2 each of the 4 phrases in the Back2Basics set from The Stamps of Life and then punched them out with a scalloped circle punch by Marvy.

After applying a great 'foundation' stamp, this card eagerly awaits a visit to 'makeup' {also known as ribbon, bling and glitter}
So many fun ideas in mind to bring out the 'beauty' in these already 'lovely' cards!

The 'Makeup Bag'

Ready for the 'Runway'!

Ready for their time to 'sparkle' under the bright lights...
A touch of glitter around the frame and a cute little pearl.

Glitter and Bling!

Used the window as an anchor for the ribbon.

A single touch of bling and a sweet trail of glitter.

Glitter and Bling on EVERY flower center...such joy!

A few bling and bow with a hint of glitter and this card is ready to 'work it'!

'Beautiful in Blue Bling' and the "hi" is 'kissed' with Glitter.

One more 'Glitter kissed' and flower blinged "hi" with a 'pretty' pink bow and bling.

Even the Envies take 'center stage' in this makeover...also used the Back2Basics stamp set from The Stamps of Life.

What a show stopper these beauties are!  All ready to be tied up in a bow and given as a gift card set...or even tuck them in your own stash of cards.  Be sure and stay tuned for another Extreme Makeover Card Edition coming soon!
