Stampin' Up's Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous! There is no need to add a lot of fancy embellishments to create a beautiful card. The gold veining in the paper combined with the alcohol painted background is stunning! Create this simple card by adding gold embellishments beneath the sentiment to coordinate with the gold detail in the paper.
The Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack contains 50 precut gold pieces along with 100 adhesive backed sequins. Add these embellishments behind your favourite stamped sentiment and your card is finished.
The Expressions In Ink paper pack coordinates with Evening Evergreen, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz, Polished Pink and Shaded Spruce colours. Choose your favourite to match with the paper as a background and layer onto a piece of Basic White cardstock.
When cutting the 5"x 3 ¾" Expressions in Ink designer series paper layer, you often have a strip left over. Add this strip to the inside of the cards for an extra special touch.
