Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

In the past couple of catalogues Stampin’ Up! has offered some truly beautiful laser-cut paper for us to work with. The details are so fine and pretty that they make it easy to create a beautiful layer on a card.

The question is how to make sure that this beautiful paper is adhered to your card so that it keeps its glory all the way to the recipient.

For me it was an old school art class name that gets brought back into my adult crafting life. Elmer spray adhesive makes this card a breeze. Using a cardboard box lined with scrap paper, simply lay the DSP with the wrong side up, give it an even spray of glue and gently place the 12×12 colour of your choice on top. After a gently press lift the two pieces together and turn over. You don’t want the cardstock to stick to the scrap paper underneath. Make sure everything looks good and then set aside to dry.

Once the sheet is dry you can carefully cut to the desired size. Depending on which trimmer you use and how well you glued the paper, creating a frame with dies is a great way to hide any pulls or imperfections đŸ˜‰

For the accents on this card I clear embossed and fussy cut around a couple of butterflies and used some rhinestones on a couple of the flower centres. With so many pages in the DSP pack you could create a rainbow of wonderful card fronts in a short period of time!
