Today’s card is a rare one for me for several reasons. First it’s a square card and I don’t make many of them. Second I CASE’d it from the new annual catalogue, and I don’t do that often, although I should. And third, I’ve used virtually the whole suite to make it – stamps, DSP, and embossing folder and I don’t do that often either! Wow, that’s quite a list.
So, do you like it? That Lovely Floral dynamic embossing folder is beautiful isn’t it, it really adds dimension to the card. I spritzed the Mint Macaron card with some water as Stampin’ Up! recommends and it embossed like a dream.
I fussy cut a few flowers from the DSP. It is so thick! It’s more expensive than usual but don’t forget that there is twice as much of it (24 sheets), and it is speciality paper because some of the sheets have pearlised elements. I hesitate to call it paper because it is so thick.
I finished the card with some Linen Thread and some sequins. Which is something else I don’t do often. I must be turning over a new leaf or something!
Any one of these elements – stamp set, embossing folder, DSP is beautiful, but put them together and they really pop. Oh, and I have more plans for that embossing folder too.
Here’s what I used to make the card:
