This RAK's for you.

I made a RAK card for one of my SBS sisters. I had a swap project to complete and mail off to her and it seemed a little thoughtless to just "stick them in an envelope and let them rattle around in there". I had been playing with some Glitter Ritz Glitter and I embossed through the

Latte glitter with one of my cuttlebug edgers, using the button embossing motif. From there I
graduated to a latte coloured ribbon with shiny polka dots. The papers I used are a no name
brand, as I was given a box of unknowns and most did not give me a clue as to the manufacturer.
I chose the gold grunge look paper over the coloured matte and also matted the glitter square
with the same coloured matte. It still looked a little plain to me, so I used my button embossing
across the top of the card. I added the salutation of "Mon Amie", a SU stamp and there you have it. Just a fun card using scraps.
Oh, I forgot the flower. I used SU Build a brad, and used 2-sided tape in the center and put the
Latte glitter on it. A sparkly center for a pretty funky flower.
