  4. Cut Copper Foil at 5-1/4″ x 2-1/8″.
  5. Cut Glossy White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 2″.

Hello with Varied Vases

Hello with Varied Vases

When you use a Suite included in the catalogue, you get a lot of coordinating products to use the make this Hello with Varied Vases.  The specialty designer paper has a pearl sheen to the flowers so it seemed the best choice was to add shimmer paint to the stamped flowers in the vase.  Purchasing the Varied Vases stamp set together with the coordinating punch will result in a 10% savings.
