Yes, all you who are reading this are truly amazing. I <heart> that we have gotten to know each other, whether it be through my blog, YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or in person here in my hometown, I cherish you. This card is for you.
There are four elements I used on this card that make it perfect:
1. Supple Shimmer 12" x 12" Specialty Paper
This amazing paper sure does have sparkle! And I think the picture of the papers that you see here on the left don't even really do the paper justice. The pink, as seen in my sample above, is much more pink. And the blue, in reality, isn't really that blue. It's more iridescent. Just take my word for it...it's absolutely gorgeous, and I think you have to have it. You know, because amazing people need amazing things.
2. Mother of Pearl 12" x 12" Specialty Paper
This paper is difficult to describe, and again, the pic from the Stampin' Up!® website does not do it justice. Good grief! I really just looks like white paper, right? Truth be told, in this case, the pic of my card does nothing for it, either. When held under the lights, this paper sparkles so much, it hurts my eyes to look at it. :D It's almost like the paper is made up of pieces of tiny, shimmery glass. So so pretty.
3. Dotty Hearts Embossing Folders
You can see a nice close-up of one of the folders in the picture above. Dotty Hearts on Mother of Pearl paper is just incredible. These folders, found in the Annual Catalog, are overlooked. I have no doubt about it. They are so sweet, and perfect for telling someone you love them, and, of course, Valentine's Day. One of my favorite parts is that they are designed to fit in our Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Do you have one yet? Purchase it now during Sale-a-bration, and you will get to choose a free Sale--a-bration item.
4. Amazing Thanks Dies
What can you say about these dies? In my opinion, they're perfect. "you are amazing," "thanks," or cut off the "s" for "thank you," makes this set of dies so versatile. I'm already planning multiple thank you card designs using these dies. And the font is so fun, isn't it? These dies are sold in a bundle with the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set, also usable for so many things! Get the two together for $44, bundle price at 10% off, then add the Mother of Pearl paper to reach that $50 benchmark so you can choose a Sale-a-bration item for free!
