These lovely friendship cards feature the gorgeous Frosted Floral specialty paper from Stampin' Up! which has a gorgeous shimmery coating on one side of each 12x12 sheet, so I decided to shimmer some cardstock and punch out the Sprig Punch leaves to add even more sparkle to my cards!
Use a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint in your Stampin' Spritzer then spritz your cardstock. Let dry, then punch out images.. so pretty!! Haven't tried it yet? be sure to WATCH MY VIDEO HERE.
I love to keep my shimmer paint, a sponge dauber and the matching spritzer together in baggies. It saves on "search time" in the craft room .. if you know what I mean. :)

Tip Sheet from Patty Bennett
I used these Stampin' Up! colors: Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow.
ABOVE: can you see the pretty shimmery punched leaf sprigs and the strip of Mossy Meadow cardstock that is also shimmered? ? I love it!
I have stamped the greeting image from the Southern Serenade set and floral images from the First Frost stamp set and die cut them with the matching Frosted Bouquet framelit dies. They are available as a bundle at 10% off!!
Added Design Note: layer the stitched shape circle framelit onto a pearlized doily.. it gives such a pretty, shimmery scalloped border!
Find the Frosted Floral paper HERE online and on pg 37 of your 2018 Holiday catalog.
The top fold card base is Pear Pizzazz cardstock, cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and folded in 1/2. The 2 pieces of Frosted Floral designer paper are 4x4 and 4 x 1-1/2", with a 1/2" wide strip of shimmered Mossy Meadow cardstock in between.
You could easily replace the Mossy Meadow strip with some pretty ribbon, too!
