I love to use flowers in my cards and to be fair I am a big fan of ‘dainty’ as well. The Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut specialty paper appealed to me the first time I saw it at Stampin’ UP!’s demonstrator event way back at the beginning of April – which is both flowery and dainty.
Stampin’ UP! also introduced a new stamp set called Itty Bitty Greetings – which is also small and dainty, so naturally would work with the lovely lacy specialty paper – but I didn’t have a punch that complimented the greeting I chose to use (and I have them all!!) so I needed to get a little inventive.
So here is my card, I have to admit that faced with a 12 x 12 sheet of ‘lace’ was a little overwhelming at first, but taking a deep breath and a sharp pair of paper snips I was able to get 9 cards out of the sheet and have some left over!
Card base: 11 x 4 1/4 Thick Whisper White ~ scored @ 5 1/2
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Mango Melody Card
Layer 2: Piece of Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper ~ carefully trimmed to roughly the size of layer 1 then carefully adhered using the tiniest drops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Ink Colors: Early Expresso
The Everyday Label Punch measures 2 3/8 x 1 1/2 which was too large for the daintiness of the lacy paper and the greeting I wanted to use from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. The video will show you how I was able to do this………….. enjoy
Here are the 9 cards made from the one sheet of the Laser-cut paper
