The Deconstructed Embellishment

Have you ever looked at your stash of embellishments and thought ... "nothing I have is working" ... why not take your existing embellishments to a new level. This simple card uses 3 different Creative Charm Embellishments in a new way.

Did you know the Shimmer Flowers can be taken apart? The white flowers and the dimensional scalloped border were created from deconstructing the Shimmer Flower.

The Sparkled Butterflies can add a wonderful touch to any card or layout. I took my butterfly to a new level by misting it. Originally the butterfly was a light green to make it pop more off the card I simply misted it with green. Once you mist the embellishment simply white the excess ink from the metal with a tissue then adhere with your favorite adhesive.

The final deconstructed embellishment on this card is the White Floral Gems, essentially these are beads. I turned these gems into flowers by adding craft wire. Wrap the wire around a kitchen skewer for that prefect springy look.

Thanks for stopping by :) Summer
