SNEAK PEEK … Special Reason Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a nice Valentines Day yesterday. As promised I am here today to share a bit more with the Stylish Stems and a sneak peek!

As if Sale-A-Bration wasn’t great already; Stampin’ Up! has added more great to the greatness! Beginning February 21st they will release THREE new exclusive Sale-A-Bration products. Today I’m going to show you one …

YES!! FREE Glimmer Paper … can’t get better than that. It comes in Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay. There are also 2 new stamp sets being released.

Now … are you ready to see what happens when you mix the Special Reason bundle and the new Sale-a-Bration Glimmer paper? Well wait no longer ….

Stunning right! Not hard to create at all. We’ll begin with a Sweet Sugarplum base (which coordinates with the new Glimmer paper) and a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Thick Whisper White cardstock.

First take the thick cardstock and cut out the largest flower to create a “peek through” …  the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper will be underneath! Oh but I cannot waste… so I cut out my glimmer flower from the “right” side of the paper.

Cutting the large detailed flower takes two steps, you just completed the first. Next you will use the outline die to actually cut the flower out. Today’s card illustrates both ways to use that die.

I attached the flower to the front of the card using the Tombo glue – it really holds nice (I will also use this to adhere the finished card front onto the base). I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the white cardstock onto the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper.

The greeting comes from the stamp set “Special Reason” that’s in our bundle. I backed that with a piece of the Mint Macaron glimmer paper and then cut out the leaves. Our greeting says: There’s no special reason for this card …  INSIDE: … except to let you know how special you are!

I really wasn’t sure that I needed another flower card, but when I saw what could be done with this bundle, well … I had to have it. The bundle in Clear Mount is $45.75 so if you add the pretty Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon – you can get the Glimmer Paper free (But Remember … it’s not available until the 21st) You will also receive another stamp on your Virtual Rewards card!
