I absolutely love all the Santoro papers- I think it is because they are good quality, have great patterns and subtle sparkle. The front covers are also works of art by themselves…simply stunning.
They are the kind of papers that tend to sit unused because you can’t bear to cut them up and then worse give them away! My SANTORO Mirabelle Pad had the perfect papers for our challenge theme of stars and stripes this month with the unusual star background paper so I decided to use them for a very special anniversary card for my brother and sister-in-law.
I keep forgetting to mention that I tend to work on scalloped 8×8″ square card blanks. The papers are all from the Mirabelle pad and I matted onto pink card and then used Tattered Rose distress stickles glitter glue around the edges. I made the topper using CraftArtist 2 Professional using an image from the digikit WH Stamps 1. I added pearl gems.
