Hello friends,

I have 2 cards to share with you today.  Both feature the beautiful Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Party Punch.  What makes the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper a Specialty? Well, glad you asked, it’s called a specialty paper because it has lovely shimmery foil designs over the Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake paper.  I wish you could see it, it’s hard to capture the shiny foil designs in a photo.

I decided to use a card sketch because it allowed me to use all three different papers in the package on one card.  It’s a fun simple sketch to use and you can easily add any shape where the papers intersect.  I used the Heart Punch Pack to punch out a heart shape but you could easily use a circle, star, oval – you get the idea. The sentiment in the heart comes from the Punch Party Host set.  The Host set is available when you host a minimum $300 workshop or personal purchase in the same amount.


The second card uses the same card sketch, the Love You Always Specialty DSP, Punch Party stamp set and the new Double Oval Punch. I love that the Double Oval punch allows you to punch the oval and then the scallop layer to layer the sentiment.
