Thank you....thanks "so" very much!

Check out this gorgeous paper!  When I first saw this in the Sale-A-Bration catalog, I wasn't so sure about it.  I've had glossy paper before and haven't used it.  When I got the paper I really liked the patterns.  The trick to this is the glossy areas.  These areas will be white after you wipe them away.  So you have to keep in mind that you need to have something white on your card to bring out the details of the glossy pattern.


Check out the Sale-A-Bration Catalog HERE!!!  I used the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (FREE!!!) and the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set (FREE!!!) for this card.  How do you get these for free???  Easily...spend $50....for every $50 you spend, you get an item free!!!


I love the different hues of the same color.  I just used a sponge and daubed where I wanted it the darkest first and then brought it out to the edges for the lighter coloring.  I wanted it darker where I put the saying just to make it more of a focal point.  After sponging, I just used a tissue and wiped off the ink on the glossy white areas.


Of course, remember that when you are layering, you can punch out of it before you adhere it.  This works perfectly for this card as we're going to use the label for our greeting.  (Yes it's Rich Razzleberry, even though in the picture it looks brownish).  The Decorative Label Punch is easy to use and easy to mat.  All you have to do, it punch one out and then cut it in half to get your mat!


Here's a close up of the embellishments.  Tangelo Twist 3/8in Satin Stripe Ribbon and the Button just bring out the other colors used to accent the greeting.

I found a card like this on Pinterest and tweeked it a little bit.  Below is the original.  You can also click here to look at it on Pinterest
