Happy Saturday! How fun it is to be back with a card for Super Scraps Saturday at Hiding in my Craft Room. This is one of my favorite challenges, and today I have a card featuring paper from our sponsor Paper Temptress.
Gorgeous metallic papers travelled all the way to Honduras from Paper Temptress and may I say, they truly are great quality. For today’s project I used their Candido Incandescent, which has a subtle golden shimmer and lineal texture that makes it look rich and elegant. In ‘real life’ it looks like a creamy white, just beautiful!

Besides the Incandescent paper I also used some other papers from my stash, but, Paper Temptress carries those textures. You can find them linked above on the list of materials, so you can check them out.
Because this card is made of scraps (except for the card base), all the elements were added as harmoniously as possible to create a shabby chic design. I made a bouquet, blooming from the top of the the card’s front, and worked the rest around it. I added many embellishments that complement nicely the floral vintage look I was trying to achieve. Finally, a heat embossed sentiment and butterfly from ODBD stamps complete the design.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post, and that you feel inspired to join this week’s challenge at Hiding in my Craft Room. All you need to do is visit the blog, follow instructions and link up your creation. Let’s get rid of these scraps people! 😀
Tomorrow I’ll be back with new projects and a tutorial, stop by if you can. Have a great day!
