Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper Card

Hello Everyone!

I can't believe it's already Monday!

Today's card features Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous

This card is much prettier in real life, Powder pink is a lovely color but difficult to photograph, so please excuse the poor pictures. (the white background was worse ๐Ÿ˜ž)

 The Laser-Cut paper is glued on top of Vellum Cardstock

Specialty Designer Series Paper, Laser Cut Detailed, Oh So Eclectic, Stampin Up

I've used Powder Pink Cardstock and the Whisper White side of the Laser-cut paper.
(Yes!  It is white on one side and vanilla on the other!  How great is that?)

Specialty Designer Series Paper, Laser Cut Detailed, Oh So Eclectic, Stampin Up

I've used a stipple brush and a corner of the laser-cut paper as a stencil to apply some

I've finished off the card by adding Wink of Stella and Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon.

The sentiment is from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set and I heat embossed it with Clear embossing powder after stamping it in Powder Pink Ink

Measurements for this card:

Card base:  Powder Pink 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Vellum 4" X 5 1/4"

Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper 4" X 5 1/4".

**Please note that I used the Guillotine paper cutter that Stampin' Up! no longer carries to cut the laser paper** You can use Any type of Rotary trimmer or scissors also.

Hello Everyone!

I'm sorry I've been away a couple of days.
I had some minor surgery, and I wasn't feeling so great when I got home,

Today's video is a card that is a shadow box hidden on the inside.
It looks like a regular card on the front, but when you open it,
it reveals an awesome 3 Dimensional Shadow box.
