Don't you just love this new Unforgettable Designer Paper from Close To My Heart - I do!! All this beautiful paper came from one Level 2 Paper Packet - 10 different cardstock sheets (2 each of 3 colors, 4 neutral) and 12 Designer Papers (2 each of 6 reversible patterns). The chocolate with the pink flowers, the stripe and the paper I've taken the photo on are all from the kit.
I did another card using the paper pleating from yesterdays challenge at Splitcoaststampers. Again, adding the lace work from the Martha Stewart Lace Border Punch. The center is comprised of a Chocolate Cardstock cut out with the Spellbinder's Scalloped Circle and a Colonial White Cardstock cut out with the Spellbinder's Circle and one more Colonial White Cardsotck cut out with a smaller Spellbinder Circle.
Since the Close To My Heart Stamps are clear I was able to stamp the Close To My Heart Dream Wishes Stamp after I cut the shapes out. The minute I saw the Dream Wishes Stamp Set in the new Close To My Heart Idea Book I knew it was a perfect match for my Spellbinder Nestabilities.
The edge of the card is faux stitched using a pattern marker. Using a personal trimmer as a guide you can run the wheel of the pattern marker along the cutting line - this will punch an even perforated line for you. Use an old personal trimmer for this - I use this trimmer for my faux stitching and paper creasing. I use a seperate personal trimmer for cutting.
And finally a close-up of the card front. I used the Stampin' Up! Blush Blossom Marker to color in the flower petals and then added a touch of Liquid Pearls to the center of each flower.
The chunky button is from the Close To My Heart Spring Button Collection - darling isn't it!
The Dream Wishes Stamp Set is perfect for journaling on scrapped pages!! I love how they fit the Spellbinder Nestabilities!
