Holly created a fun card for us today with an oh so true sentiment! She used stamps and dies from Altenew (which are currently on sale) and a lovely paper collection from Kaisercraft. Take a look:

AsmileR2 490x521

Lovely! Simple to create, fairly flat for mailing and super striking!!!

Gorgeous paper to work with.

A closer look — see the added sequins for some sparkle!

Sometimes the paper is so pretty you just have to let it shine on its own.

Loving these clean, crisp lines!

True Love by Kaisercraft

As we all know, the Kaisercraft pads always contain some beautiful metallic sheets. Though it doesn’t show in the graphic above, the metallic in this pad is a beautiful COPPER. This collection works beautifully with the copper ink, copper paper and other copper accents we have in stock. Find all COPPER here.

(Holly did not use the copper sheets today, but I just wanted to point that out.)
