Did you notice the beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper in our Stampin’ Up! catalog? It is on page 189 and also featured on pages 38-39 as part of the Delightfully Detailed suite. This week I did a Facebook Live showing you 3 ideas on using this paper for cards. You can view my May 13, 2019 FB live video HERE. Be sure to catch my next FB live video on Monday, May 20th.
For today’s post I have one of the cards and the other two will post in the next few days. This card uses the full sheet of the laser-cut paper but I cut it up into pieces. First I cut it in half at 6″. Then I cut each half into three 4″ pieces. So out of each of the full 12×12 pieces you can get 6 of these pieces. Be careful when cutting and handling the paper as it is very delicate.
I used a blender pen and my classic ink pads to color the delicate design in the paper. And then I trimmed away bits until I had what I wanted left for my card front. Each one will be unique depending on the section of the large piece that you started with and which bits you cut away. Once it was colored use either a Fine-tip glue pen or the Liquid multipurpose glue (very carefully) to add glue to the back and attach to the layer of Whisper White card stock. Stamp a greeting and add some of the polka dot ribbon around the layer before adding on the front of your card. The time consuming part is coloring it and then deciding what to trim away – otherwise it is a fairly simple card.

Here is the second one that I actually made in the video.
When you use the blender pen you can pick up any color of ink to color with. There are a couple of tips in my video. Thanks for stopping by and if you watch the video you can leave me a comment there. Remember to order retiring products now before they are gone. The laser-cut paper and the Petal Palette stamp set are retiring.
