I love the Twitterpated Designer paper. I loved it when Stampin' Up! brought it out in the 2012 Spring Mini and was delighted when it was included in the Annual Catalogue. There is something in it for everyone. Today I used a very feminine, flowered design that includes Whisper White, Island Indigo, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and two retired colours: Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride. For my card, I decided to use the Naturals White as the base and I layered it with Pink Pirouette which, while not an exact match, manages to compliment the pink in the paper.
I used varying sizes of the Hearts framelits to get alternating hearts, designer paper and then Pink Pirouette. They were adhered to the card with dimensionals. It's an attractive but subtle effect. To give the card a bit more texture, I added some embossed scallops and dots above and below the coloured layers, using the new Borders Scoring Plate. I was surprised at how easy it was to use and how effective the embossing turned out to be. I would recommend it to anyone. What a great new tool!
Finally, my single word sentiment, "Happiness", is stamped on Island Indigo in Versamark and then heat embossed in White embossing powder. I cut that out with the largest of the Bitty Banners framelits and used dimensionals to adhere it to the side of t he layered hearts.
I love the finished card. I kept it very simple and decided not to add any ribbon or other embellishment, outside one rhinestone on the smallest of the hearts. Sometimes you just have to leave it at that.
