A brand new paper was introduced at OnStage, Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, and I couldn’t wait to try it. The sheets are vanilla on one side, and white on the other. I chose vanilla to go with the Very Vanilla card base for this project.
The laser-cut sheet shows off beautifully against a layer of Tranquil Tide cardstock.
TIP: Use pin dots of Tombow glue to adhere the laser-cut paper.
I was happy to find out that the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set is carrying over to the new catalog. She is featured on one of my favorite cards that I created nearly a year ago.
Today’s card was inspired by the fun theme challenge “Magical,” at Paper Players. This theme is great for children, because of their imaginations. But, adults like magical too!
I used a sheet of the new Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper for stamping the mermaid. The DSP is in the new color, Soft Seafoam, so her Tranquil Tide Ink lines show up nicely.
The mermaid isn’t difficult to fussy cut (hand cut with scissors). The sentiment, “Have a Magical Birthday” is in the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set, and I used a Layering Circles Die for cutting.
For some 3D action, I placed the mermaid on dimensionals.
Most people wouldn’t guess that this is a “quick and easy” card to make. The Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper does the work for you. Just take care with the gluing.
Have a wonderful, magical day!
