I have been looking through stamp sets from the Annual Catalog to see what I have not been using. The Season of Chick jumped out at me. The paper has always been a favorite, but I haven’t really used the stamp set as much. And with both the Mini and the Annual getting ready to retire, it seemed the perfect time to break it out. Plus I have a fun use for the paper.
Stamp and Die Bundle
It is difficult to pick a favorite part of this card. I love the papers, but also the flower and the Die cut layer. The bundle is the Season of Chic with the matching Chic Dies. That open weave layer is from the Die set. It really adds a lot to the card. The flower and sentiment are from the stamp set. The flower is a two step that is done in Smoky Slate and Petal Pink.
The Texture Chic Designer Series Paper is part of the Season of Chic Suite of products. So of course it was the perfect choice to pair with the bundle products. I love the soft and shine together. The fun pleating is done with a piece of the DSP. I found several versions of how to do the pleating on Pinterest and YouTube. Mine is sort of a mixture of a few.
To compliment the gold in the papers, and to cover the top of the pleating, I used the Gold and Rose Gold Specialty paper from the Annual Catalog. Just a strip was all that I needed. The open weave Die cut layer is also a scrap piece of the Textured Chic paper. The gold seems to pop even more after being Die cut!
To complete the card I used the Banners Pick A Punch to flag the end of the sentiment strip. Then it is tucked under the flower. Of course there has to be bling! So I scattered some of the Flat Adhesive Pearls around the card and for the flower center. These remind me of Fresh Water Pearls with the different shapes and luster.
