Shimmer Makes it Special

Happy Tuesday stampers!

I wanted to share this card with you before the embossing folder I used sells out. I made this with the Finial Press folder and somehow, it's found it's way onto the Retiring Accessories list. Yes, it's true, so if you want this beauty, you need to order it before it's too late!

The card is my take on a similar one I'd seen on the web somewhere. It was so lovely, I had to re-create it for my classes in April.


I used Very Vanilla cardstock for all the layers. The Finial Press Embossing Folder was used for the central layer and I used the Houndstooth Embossing Folder for the front heart layer. It's punched out with the Full Heart Punch. The second heart is from the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit. I added a border of Very Vanilla that was punched with the Eyelet Border Punch.

You can see the special touches I added better from this photo. all of the embossed and punched layers were lightly painted with a sponge dauber and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. I added two of the Large Pearls and a wrap around bow of Pool Party Seam Binding. The greeting is from the now retired Loving Thoughts stamp set.

I loved this card so much! The Shimmer Paint makes it for me, that stuff is awesome.

So, I'm getting off the computer for today - been on here a LOT today with all the great announcements that Stampin' Up! made today. It's been a busy one for me!
I'll be back tomorrow with a family post and to share some of the news with you all!
