With less than 2 weeks until the Stampin’ Up! January to June Mini Catalogue goes live it’s time to get going on my sneak peeks. Today after a well deserved lie-in I created this birthday card for my Simple Sunday project. It showcases the new Parisian Blossoms 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.
PRETTY FOILED PAPER
I began with one of the sheets from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP with champagne foil accents. First I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to mount it onto some Petal Pink Card. Then I wrapped some Petal Pink 5/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon around the layers and secured it on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.
With that done, I used my Paper Trimmer to cut and score a piece of Thick Whisper White Card. I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder to create my card base. Then using more liquid glue I added my ribbon-wrapped layers to the front of the card base.
On the inside of the card I glued a 3/4″ strip of the DSP along the bottom edge. Then I added a 1/8″ strip of Petal Pink Card up against the DSP strip.
One final piece of the Parisian Blossoms paper was glued to the flap of a Whisper White Medium Envelope. I cut this to shape with Paper Snips, using the edge of the flap as a guide.
That just left the sentiment from the Here’s A Card Stamp Set. Using Pool Party ink I stamped the sentiment onto some Thick Whisper White Card. Then I punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch before fixing it to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
And that was it, my simple, but striking birthday card was complete.
At first glance this paper might seem feminine with the sheets of Petal Pink designs. However Stampin’ Up! have been very clever and included Pool Party designs on the reverse of many of them for masculine projects too.
I used another piece from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on my first sneak peek project yesterday. If you missed that you’ll find it in my blog post The power of sneak peeks.
In the meantime here’s a look at all 12 designs in the pack, four of which have the added champagne foil accents. The colours used in the pack are Basic Black, champagne (foil), Cherry Cobbler, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Whisper White.
Now I’m off to make more sneak peek projects so I hope you’ll return again tomorrow to see what I come up with.
