Say it with flowers

Good morning bloggers!

I've got a card to share with you that features some beautiful cardstock from Crafter's Companion called Luxury Centura Pearl.

It's hard to take a picture and capture it's beauty...but trust's 2.DIE.4!

I stamped images from Crafter's Companion - Popcorn the Bear Say it with Flowers set with Stone Gray StazOn ink. Next, I colored the flowers with a light blue Tombow marker. Then I finished them off with light blue pearls and Glossy Accents. The panel corners are rounded with a 1/2" corner rounder punch -- then adhered to card base.

This cardstock is snow white with a stunning "barely there" gold fleck effect pattern finish on one side - matte white on the other. It's perfect for a card base because you can actually write on the inside of your card without your pen smearing all over the place! THANK YOU CC!

I tried to get a closeup pic so you can see how beautiful the finish and gold effect. Click the picture to zoom in...and then look at the flowers. Can you see the "barely there" gold fleck effect?! Since I covered them with actually magnifies the beauty of the paper. LOVE!!!
Luxury Centura Pearl is approximately 130lb Cardstock -- which is GREAT for making a sturdy card base, boxes, bags, die cutting and more!
I love how my card turned out. Soft colors and pearls. Makes me happy :) I'll have more cards to share in the near future using Luxury Centura Pearl cardstock. So stay tuned! I've got some fun techniques to show you too!
Have a luxurious day!
