Photorealistic designer series paper is not always my thing. I just have not figured out how to use it well. However, the Petal Promenade designer series paper from the Annual catalog is gorgeous! I have used it a lot. The colors work well together, and it carries a card so well.
On this project, I have chosen to pair it with the Enjoy Life stamp set, also from the Annual catalog. It has some really great sentiments. I especially like this one.
Since Sale-A-Bration is almost over -- GASP!! -- I wanted to get a little more use out of the extras that have been added as FREE gifts with purchase. Did you know you can get this gorgeous paper FREE? A whole pack of it! In addition, you can get the Share What You Love embellishment kit FREE as well. This little box is packed full of hidden gems, including this beautiful laser cut tag, which I used for the sentiment, and the adorable mini paper clip used as an accent.
To recreate this card:
- cut a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock and score at 5 1/2"
- cut a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Petal Promenade designer series paper
- cut a 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of gold glimmer paper
Using the large scallop die from the Seasonal Layers thinlits, die cut a long scalloped edge on the designer series paper and glimmer paper before layering on your card. Tie a piece of gold sequin ribbon around a mini paper clip, than tie it to the tag with a piece of Calypso Coral ombre ribbon. Add some gold sequins for a finishing touch.
This card is quite simple to make and comes together quickly. What do you think? Try making a card with photorealistic paper and share it with me. I would love to see it!
