Do you want to make easy cards with loads of details? Try using Stampin’ Up!s Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. It might be one of the things you overlooked when you first opened your Annual Catalogue. I know I did, as I generally start searching for all the new floral stamp sets to add to my growing collection of flowery sets.
I was thrilled when I saw how many panels and leaves you can cut out from this specialty paper. I’ve chosen this full card panel for my card today. I daubed some Pineapple Punch on my card base and attached the patterned laser-cut paper over the top of my daubing. This allows the Pineapple Punch Ink to peek through the cut outs.
I cut a circle of Vellum Cardstock and adhered my flowers and leaves – both of these are from the Floral Essence Stamp Set. The flowers have been stamped with Mango Melody Ink with one of them stamped off on to scratch paper to create a duller shade of Mango Melody. The centre of the flowers have been stamped with Pineapple Punch Ink and the leaves are stamped with Call Me Clover Ink. The leaves are punched out with my Leaf Punch.
The sentiment I’ve used is from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set. I wanted a sentiment that I could cut out and layer over the flowers. This one worked perfectly for the look I was going for.
Thanks for stopping by.
