Have you seen the new Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper?  Wow!  It is gorgeous.  Here's a picture of it.

Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty DSP

Here is my card for today using this paper.

Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut DSP and Eclectic Layers Thinlits by Jo Anne Hewins

My card base is Rich Razzleberry cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and folded at 5 1/2.

The laser cut paper is cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I have the old cutter with the arm that Stampin' Up! used to sell.  That's what I used to cut this paper.  If you are using the current cutter,  be careful.  I would make sure that the blade was sharp.  I haven't tried it with the current cutter.

Of course adhering this paper could be a challenge.  I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen in places that are a little heavier.  You could also squirt some glue on your Silicone Craft sheet and use part of a sponge to sponge on the glue.  Be careful not to move the paper around so you don't get glue on the front of the paper.

Add the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.  This ribbon is retired.  I'm sure you might have ribbon you need to use up, too.  The Lemon Lime looks great with Rich Razzleberry.

Use the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut an oval from Whisper White.  Use the Eclectic Layer Thinlits to cut the flower from Rich Razzleberry.  Sponge the top detailed layer with Rich Razzleberry ink.  Cut a leaf from Lemon Lime Twist from the same thinlit set.  Attach the flower with dimensionals.

Add the Lemon Lime Twist Bow with a glue dot.

The love you sentiment is from the Enjoy Life stamp set.  Stamp in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White and fussy cut around the words.  Attach with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, make another flower just as on the outside.  The words here are from the Varied Vases stamp set.  That set has the best words!
