Today's card is a good example of a quick card requiring minimal supplies. I used the leaf stamp from Betsy's Blossoms (new in the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog) to create a background. Easy, yes? My inspiration was from the front of a bedding catalog.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP: To line up brads in just the right spots, use a paper-piercing tool and piercing template. Watch my Stampin' Pretty Video Tutorial for more details. Stampin' Up! introduced the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack in the new catalog. It takes the simplicity of the paper-piercing technique to a new level of exquisite. Note how the patterns coordinate with Stampin' Up! Punches (p. 182-185), Edgelits (p. 190) and Framelits (p. 191).
This budget-friendly Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack ($7.95) is definitely on my Top 10 Favorite Accessories from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog (coming later this week).
