Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper - a Fussy Cutter's Dream

Hello and welcome. Well the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue is finally live and we can now all get our hands on the beautiful new products. One of my favourites from the new catalogue is the Bird Ballad Suite, particularly the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. As paper crafters we all have a bit of a tendency to hoard our beautiful patterned papers and not want to cut into them but for me that wasn't the case with these papers. The minute I opened my packet I couldn't wait to start fussing cutting the gorgeous bird images.

The layout for this card was inspired by this gorgeous creation by Charlet Mallet which is the focus for this week's Global Design Project CASE the Designer challenge.

When CASEing Charlet's card I was inspired to combine both the dry embossed background and the offset banner element and tryout a partial dry embossing technique with the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. This technique is great for embossing a portion of your background and makes your embossing folders more versatile. My beautiful friend (and fellow Artisan) Mikaela Titheridge shared this technique on the Stampin' Up! Corporate Instagram page earlier this year. Follow this link to see  her instructions on how to achieve this partial embossed effect -

I hope you like my project and that I have inspired you to try out some partial dry embossing or to get out and cut up your DSP

Happy crafting
