Today’s card features two new products – Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and our Genial Gems


Stampin Up! Hand-Penned


I started with a base of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and then added another layer that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Painted Texture embossing folder. I cut a piece of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and layered it with a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock. 


Hand Penned Designer Series Paper


The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using Misty Moonlight ink and was then cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I used those same dies to cut a scalloped circle out of Soft Sea Foam and a larger one out of Misty Moonlight.  I layered these pieces with the sentiment and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it the front of the card. To complete the card, I added three Genial Gems for some sparkle! You can find all the measurements below the Supply List.
