Wow! I am crazy about this new Designer Specialty Paper, named Share What You Love. The hand painted designs are gorgeous, and four of them have a translucent, pearlized finish. There are 24, 12X12″ heavyweight, double-sided sheets in a pack, 4 each, so there’s enough to share. I used the reverse side of today’s design in my Nature’s Poem card I posted a few days ago.
Here is today’s anniversary card:
I layered the DSP on Rich Razzleberry cardstock to bring out the color in the flowers. And, I chose a Crumb Cake card base to match the background in the paper. This week’s challenge at the Global Design Project provided the inspiration for my lay-out.
Stampin’ Up’s Lots of Label Dies has the exact shape in the sketch, so I HAD to use it. This die set is retiring May 31st, so order it while you can. The larger label was die cut from the print I used for photographing. Do you see, it’s also the one I used in my Nature’s Poem card?
The sentiment, “Happy Anniversary,” and the three, little flowers on the label, are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set. I used Rich Razzleberry Ink for stamping, and a die for cutting. Before adhering the layers and labels to the card base, I tied ribbon around the layers. What do you think of our new Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon? I think it looks fabulous! Plus, it’s stretchy, and easy to work with.
After popping up the label and flowers on dimensionals, I added pearls to the centers of the flowers. A little embellishment goes a long way. Right?
While completing the card, I realized it fit perfectly with the Tic Tac Toe challenge row: neutral-ribbon-patterned paper. The neutral color Crumb Cake is the card base, the ribbon is the Polka Dot Tulle, and the printed paper is the fabulous Share What You Love DSP.
I can’t stop looking at this card, thinking how pretty it is. I’m not taking credit; the fabulous DSP and ribbon make it what it is.
Thank you for visiting my blog, so I can “share what I love” with you!”
