Carefully cut the leaf design from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to a 3 5/8 x 5 3/16 piece of Basic Black card stock.  You may need to adjust the size depending on the size you cut the laser paper.  TIP:  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and a Paper Piercing tool to lightly dab adhesive on the backs of the corners and approximately a dozen random leaves of the detailed pattern.

    Gorgeous card!

    Quick question – I didn’t get the cherry cobbler and a couple other colors of the Stampin Blends previously. Can I order them now to use now and then await the new colors when they are available? I loved my pink colors so much they are almost used up. I know that they discontinued it for the new batch – should I try ordering to see if they have any left?

    • All the current (previously released colors) are available to order now. Pink Pirouette is retiring and only available while supplies last. Hoping the new catalog colors will be available in mid-June.

  2. Very striking card and the font is different from what we have had in the past.. The laser cut paper looks so elegant.

  3. GORGEOUS! I love that pop of red on the flower and the band on the base of the card. Such a great project! <3

  4. I love this new paper, and you’ve showcased it absolutely beautifully!
