Hi all Paper Temptress Fans.  My name is Lisa A. and this is first Paper Temptress design team project.  I live in Dublin, Ohio.  I am married to my best friend Todd and we have an 11 year old daughter.  I am a stay at home mom.  I have been a crafter from a early age, but when I found papercrafting I discovered my true passion.  I love to be able to create items for family and friends.  I would like to start by saying Thank You to Patricia for this wonderful opportunity to be a part of a such a talented group and be able to be able to work with beautiful papers.  Now on with my first project.  I choose to create a simple yet elegant thank you card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Products used:

  • Mountain Rose Glimmer from Paper Temptress
  • Plain White Cardstock
  • Memento Ink Angel Pink
  • Memento Ink Rosebud
  • Cuttlebug Folder “Stylized Flowers”
  • Pink Rhinestones
  • Pink Satin Ribbon â…›” wide
  • Stamps are from Stampin’ Up
  • Scoring Board

How I made it:

  • I cut the card base out of white cardstock 6″x 9″
  • I then scored the cardstock at 2¼” and at 6¾” to form the gate fold card
  • I cut 2 pieces of the Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock 5â…ž”x 2¼”
  • Using the Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder I embossed the Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock and then I attached them to the 2 side panels of the front of the gate fold card
  • I cut white cardstock at 2″x 2″ and 2½”x 2½”
  • I stamped the flower image in Angel Pink and Rosebud stamp pad on the 2″x 2″ and then mounted it on a piece of Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock cut at 2¼” x  and 2¼” and then mounted on the 2½”x 2½” white cardstock
  • I added adhesive to the left side of the matted image and attached to the left side flap of the gate fold card
  • I cut white cardstock  at 2″ x 1″ and 2½”x 1½”
  • I stamped the sentiment stamp on the white cardstock 2″ x 1″ and then cut a piece of Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock to mount the stamped sentiment on and then added the layers to the white cardstock 2½”x 1½”
  • I added adhesive to the right side of the matted sentiment and then attached to the right flap of the gate fold card
  • I cut a piece of Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock at 4â…œ” x 5⅞” and attached to the inside of the card
  • I cut white cardstock at 3½”x 3” and the stamped sentiment in Rosebud stamp pad and then attached to the inside of the gate fold card
  • I added a small bow to the front of the card and a rhinestone to the center of the flower for a little bling to match the shimmer of the paper.

I hope that you are able to see the beautiful shimmer of the paper.  The detail from the embossing folder is enhanced the Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock.  It would be a versatile  cardstock to use for so many projects.

Until next time…happy paper crafting!
