Oh my I just LOVE the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper – SO sparkly and fun to use – have you tried it yet? If not, you should pop it onto your wish list – it is just gorgeous and simply sparkles!
I used it today on a Thanksgiving card to create the main focal point and wow does it do that – it’s hard to capture the true sparkle that this paper has but I’ve tried!
Here is my card…see that leaf? Simply a die cut out of the top piece of brown cardstock to allow that beautiful orange glitter paper to shine through…
You will find a link to the printable/downloadable Project Sheet detailing all measurements, colors used & instructions on how to make this card below
The thing I love about this card is that it looks complicated because it has a bunch of visual texture going on, but it really isn’t at all – it’s actually a really fun card to make as it incorporates background & small stamping, a little die cutting and glitter – GLITTER that you can’t spill on the cat or into your coffee – LOL – yep, done both – my cat runs away when he sees the glitter jars :-)
Here is that big beautiful leaf…seriously, you have to see this paper in real life – you can find it on pg 55 of the Holiday Catalog or by clicking HERE – it is ALOT more glittery and sparkly than I can capture for you!
I cut out my leaf shape using a die from Leaflets Framelits Dies (pg 193 Annual Catalog) and the wonderful thing about these dies is that you can position them ANYWHERE – this means that you can cut your shape wherever you like on your piece of cardstock or scrapbook page – it’s like freedom!
I used another product from the Holiday Catalog on this card – the sentiment is from Petals & Paisleys Stamp Set (pg 47) and because this particular stamp is big and bold, it holds up well on it’s own…
And as you can see, I decided to have my stamped banner cover the entire width of the card – you can get very different looks on your cards by varying the width of this type of layer – play around and try out a few different lengths when you next make a card – it is amazing!
I kept to some basic Fall colors – Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso with a little Soft Suede thrown in the mix there too – and I love how the background stamp ties right on into leafy theme – that stamp is called Hardwood (pg 125 of the Annual Catalog)…
