How To Make A Congratulations Card That Shines

Today's project is a Congratulations card that shines. Rinea Foiled Paper and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist work together to give the dragon a spark of personality. Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect works behind the scenes to keep things secure. 
~ Congratulations ~
 The dragon medallion is a stamped and embossed image. I painted it with Glimmer Mist to give it a water color effect. I used a corrugated circular die to cut out the dragon.
The base of this card is a 4"x 6" piece of emerald Rinea Foiled Paper. On top of that I placed a slightly smaller piece of black cardstock with the word Congratulations cut out from it with a die.
 I used Best Glue Ever to go all around the word. To get in the small spaces with out over doing it I used a No-Clog Writing Cap.

The dragon medallion is centered on a strip of gold foiled paper with scant amounts of BGE.
After letting the glue set a minute I added thin strips of Best Glue Ever to the back of the gold foiled paper and centered it below the sentiment. 
 I spread a thin layer of BGE on the card blank to hold the base down and the card was finished.
 Best Glue Ever adheres to smooth surfaces without wrinkling the paper. The No-Clog Writing Cap helps me get glue in all the nooks and crannies. ScraPerfect products make this card a success.
