If you think the card in the picture above looks a little shiny, that’s because it IS! I used a brand new paper from the Holiday Catalog called the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper! Not only does this paper have absolutely gorgeous colors and designs, all of it is coated with a beautiful, shimmery sheen. It is absolutely stunning! You can see the full array of designs in this paper below:
For this card, I used a floral design from the paper along with a birthday sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. I also used the limited time only Stitched Seasons Framelits as well!
Other products used on this card include Shimmery White card stock for the base and sentiment, Soft Sea Foam card stock for the middle layer and some accent leaves, Silver Baker’s Twine, and a new embellishment called the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets. I colored the droplets with my Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends marker to add a hint of color before applying them to the card! Here’s a close up of the sentiment piece and the embellishments. I hope you can see the hint of green on the droplets. It’s very, very subtle!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Shimmery White cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Soft Sea Foam middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
DSP top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
Shimmery White sentiment piece: 2-1/4 x 3-1/8 (approximate)
Vellum and Soft Sea Foam leaves: ranges from 1 to 1-1/2 inches wide x 2 inches long (approximate)
This card is so pretty in person! I wish you could see the shimmer of the paper. It’s very subtle and not at all glaring! This paper would make a great accents on cards, tags, scrapbook pages, and so much more! It will be available September 5th when the Holiday Catalog goes live for customers. I hope you will check it out!
