Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I'm sharing 5 super quick ways to embellish your cards!

Today's post is about adding that special shine to your cards. For me, playing with embellishments is one of my favorite parts of the card-designing process.  The Craft-A-Flower Primrose is a fabulous set to create small and intricate flowers.  Thanks to its size, it is easy to arrange the layout.

5 Super Quick Ways to Embellish Your Cards

I started by creating my own floral paper.  I quickly scribbled the Hawaiian Shores Brush Pens and Fine Tip Pens across a piece of  Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.

#1 Add Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray to your paper.

I sprayed Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray over the inked color paper. Once the ink dried, I lined up the dies from Craft-A-Flower Primrose. The easiest way to assemble is to arrange the dies in the same orientation for easy identification.

When assembling the flowers, I die cut the pieces with the Dazzling Diamond Glitter Cardstock Set. Instantly, you have gorgeous flowers with shine! Next, I took the cardstock and added framed textures with Simple Frame 3D Embossing Folder.

#3 Apply Must-have Glitter Gel Pen Set.

Noticed the silver dots? I added some subtle silver shine to the white paper. This is a subtle way to add designs and glitter.  The Must-Have Glitter Gel Pen Set simply flows and dazzles!

#4 Add some Metallic Thread Set.

I made a small ball of thread and tugged it under the flower cluster. The Instant Dimension Foam Tape secured everything beautifully.

#5 Don't forget to use the Make a Statement Sequins!

The white sequins are nearly invisible on white cardstock and that is the idea of adding sequins as they provide the extra subtle shine and interest.

Beautiful cards, the embossing on first card really adds charm to great floral arrangement. Beautiful bold colors on 2nd card, to brighten the cold winter days.
