Right out of the gate I will say that the greeting diecut that I used is from another company. I found it when I was doing some online browsing and I fell in love right away, and I made an impulse purchase. I really love greeting diecuts with a coordinating shadow die so they made it into my shopping cart. 😊 Don’t get me wrong – Stampin’ Up! has some wonderful dies, and I use them a lot. I enjoy sending cards ‘just because’ and there isn’t a die set from Stampin’ Up! that fits this; so I was excited when I found this online. I also want to you to understand that it is totally fine to combine supplies that you have with the great stamps and paper from Stampin’ Up! I absolutely love the quality of the papers, and I think that they stand up against any other vendors products. And the color coordination with the patterned papers makes it sooo easy to create projects that look good because the colors don’t clash. It’s like pressing the “easy” button.
The picture doesn’t make it super obvious, but this card has some depth. For the diecut greeting I cut 3 of the Night of Navy words and glued them together in a stack and then glued them to the Balmy Blue shadow. I’ve mentioned this before, and I absolutely love doing this with word diecuts. I also did something similar with the patterned paper pieces. The floral paper is cut with the Deckled Rectangles, and I cut 2 pieces of Basic White cardstock cut in the same way. Just like I did with the greeting, I glued together a stack of them to create a thicker piece of paper. It took a little bit of time, but I just love the finished look. And last, but not least, I added several gold, silver and white sequins randomly around to give some shine to the card.Product List
