My Stampin' Up! order was delivered today and I was so excited to try out the "To the Nines" Specialty paper - I know, it's about time. And I'm so glad I ordered it. These specialty papers (see page 158 of the Idea Book & Catalogue) are heavier weight and also many are textured which gives them such a WOW quality.

My husband needed a sympathy card for a business friend so I used a sheet from the "To the Nines" package and the "Close as a Memory" and "Inspired by Nature" Stamp Sets to create the following card. Because the Specialty Designer Paper is two sided, the inside of the card presented a beautiful design as well, and was definitely a heavy enough weight to use for the card base. The colours of the ink and DSP include Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow.

And I must confess the reason I ordered more DSP is because of SU's May special. If you're interested you still have until May 30th to order!
