Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
On this eve of the New Year, I am so excited to share another Sending Smiles Card with a touch of Gold! The Gold comes from the New Jan-April Mini Catalog on page 15 … it has the most beautiful shimmer! Stampin’ Up! calls it Fine Shimmer and it comes in 12 x 12 size and you get 2 of each of the three colors: Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia and Gold.
I teamed it up with the Fancy Flora designer paper found on the same page in the Mini catalog, so you know that the colors will coordinate! Makes our life so much easier that way right. No need to stress when designing our cards. I invite you to case (copy) my designs so you can start creating right away.
You can see that the layout is the same as yesterday’s card with just a few changes….
My card base is Evening Evergreen and my mat for the “same” Fancy Flora designer paper is the Gold Fine Shimmer paper. I also replaced the ribbon with a Evening Evergreen banner. Yesterdays card was “stamped” onto the Soft Succulent, where today I used Evening Evergreen and cut my Gold from the center of my mat (paper saving technique).
Layering the detailed die cut “sending” against the die cut mat creates a bold statement and adds some texture to your card. I love sentiments and when you can die cut them it really creates a WOW on your card …
The greetings from both cards that I stamped onto the Basic White comes from the Sending Smiles bundle. Yesterday’s was die cut, and I just cut the ends at an angle for today’s card. It’s these subtle changes to your cards that can make it look like a whole new card. Again, taking the stress out of trying to come up with designs.
I can’t wait for the New Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs to go LIVE on January 5th … there is so much to see. The Sending Smiles is already available in our current Annual Catalog and is such a fun bundle to play with … with or without the Gold!
Thank you for spending part of your day with me today. I hope your as excited for the new catalogs as I am, and your ready to play with the Sending Smiles and Gold Fine Glimmer paper (and more).
Happy New Years Eve ~
Here are the supplies I used for today’s card that are currently available…
