A few months ago I purchased a sampler pack of Papertrey's Shimmer card stock but until today, I had not opened it. Oh my goodness, what delights awaited me! I chose to use the one sheet of Sea Shimmer for a couple of cards right off the bat. It is simply scrumptious! It is impossible to capture the shimmer in online photos, but here is one of two cards I created:
I love this color combo for summer - it feels very refreshing, like a cool breeze on a warm summer day.In addition to the Sea Shimmer card stock, I also used white shimmer for the large leaf border die cut. The added butterflies are embossed with an iridescent Peacock embossing powder, which also displays a beautiful shimmer in the light. Unfortunately, my photos just can't capture the beauty of all this shimmer.
Thanks for stopping by!
