Story of Elegance

Happy New Year!

It certainly feels good to be back from my unplanned sabbatical!  I trust that you had a safe and joyous holiday season.  I know that I certainly did.

Great news!  The new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog is available today!  Woo hoo!

As always, this new catalog is jammed full of beautiful, fun, high-quality paper crafting products.  There are so many choices, I won’t even attempt to offer up a list of favorites.  However, I can say that one of my favorite papers is the new Abstract Beauty Designer Series Paper.   This beautiful paper comes in a new size 4″ x 6″ and it contains 48 sheets.

Look at how pretty it is!

Here is the card I created using this lovely paper.

A Closer Look

Elegance Made Easy 

I love how easy it was to make this card.

To start, I embossed a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Blushing Bride card stock with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and added it to a Thick Basic White card base.

Next, I added a layer of Gold Foil ( 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″) and Abstract Beauty DSP ( 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″) to the embossed panel.

Finally, I die cut the sentiment using the Amazing Thanks dies in Blushing Bride card stock  and Gold Foil.  The Blushing Bride shadow die cut is 4 layers.

Once again, another easy and elegant card that can be ready in a flash!
