You're a true friend card featuring the new Whisper White Thick Cardstock
Today's card features the new Whisper White Thick Cardstock. The Stampin' Up! standard Whisper White Cardstock is 216gsm. The Whisper White Thick Cardstock is much heavier at 270gsm. This makes it much stronger to hold embellishments and also allows you to keep the design simple with no layers, like I have shown in today's project.
I've created the background using the Watercolour Wash background stamp and Pool Party ink. I love the fact that you don't need to be an artist to have authentic looking brush strokes in your project.
I die cut a butterfly from Basic Gray Cardstock using the smallest die in the Butterflies Thinlits Dies set. I then die cut a butterfly from Vellum using the smallest butterfly in the Bold Butterfly Framelit Dies and layered this onto the butterfly in Basic Gray. I might try this using the Silver Foil Paper or Silver Glimmer Paper next time to give the card more sparkle.
I then adhered sequins, rhinestones and subtles candy dots to the background using the new Fine Tip Glue Pen which will be available in the Autumn/Winter catalogue that’s being released on 1st September.
On a 1cm strip of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment You're a true friend using the Endless Thanks stamp set. I then used the tripple banner punch to punch out the banner end. This stamp set is so versatile, there are so many combinations you make, take a look at the stamps included in the picture below.
I hope you have enjoyed this project today. Have a great weekend!
