Floral Friday: Copper Crazy Card

Today I have embraced all things copper, mainly because I need to start using up things before the new catalogue arrives and that means cutting into the most beautiful paper I’ve seen from Stampin’ Up! Yes you’ve guessed it the stunning sheet of copper foiled floral Kraft cardstock in the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP.

The photo really doesn’t do it justice, I’m thinking I might order another pack of this paper just for this sheet alone. Anyway onto my card:

I adore how this turned out, I think its one of my favourite cards I’ve made in a while. The flowers were stamped in Versamark onto Crumb Cake cardstock and heat embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder, I wish the camera picked up how super shiny this card is.

I fussy cut the flowers out and finished them off with pearls in the centres, to add a little softness I added some loops behind the flowers in the Copper Metallic Thread. The sentiment comes from One Big Meaning and was stamped and embossed onto the Stitched Shape and Layering Oval Framelit sets.

Have you got a favourite paper from the current catalogue which you have been hoarding? Are you going to use it before June when we get the new catalogue? I’d love to know what your favourites are?

Happy Crafting
