When I first saw this paper, I couldn’t decide if I liked it. After all, I was looking at it online before we got catalogs and I couldn’t decide if this paper was going to work. But after getting it and playing with it this week, I am in love! The images are clear, crisp and colors so vivid. In fact all my cards with this paper look 3-D! I love it! And you can see in the picture below just how beautiful they are. One side is a realistic photograph of things you would see at a birthday party and the other side is beautiful graphic designs. For this card, I layered one of the realistic designs over Lemon Lime Twist and then on a Berry Burst card base. I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst on Lemon Lime and then die cut it using the Stitched Square. A Berry Burst bow from the Mini Gift Bows was added and yes, it compresses enough to put in an envelope! And there you have it…PIcture Perfect and simple to make. I can’t wait for you to see the other designs this week!
The entire Picture Perfect Party Suite is a collection of beautiful colors and products. You can see some of the ideas below.
And I will let you in on a little secret. The Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon that was featured in the Suite is no longer available. But what you can do(if you have a sewing machine), is cut some card stock in 1′ strips. Then layer 2 pieces together and stitch down the middle. The take your paper snips and make a cut almost up to the pitch line ever quarter or eight inch, depending on what you like. Once you have the strip cut, then ball it up and squish it around to soften up the paper and get the strips to have a ruffled look! Viola! You have the paper you see in the image above!
