For the Record + Your Paper Insider

Hello!  I'm super excited to share today's card with you.  A month or so ago Your Paper Insider contacted me and asked if I would like to try one of their paper subscription boxes.  They release a curated box of unique papers quarterly and were just about to release Box 5. (They also sell some individual paper packs and assortment packs, though.) They were new to me and I was intrigued, so I said yes.  And I'm so glad I did!  
When the package arrived it totally exceeded my expectations.  First of all, it was so carefully packaged.  I could tell a lot of care was put in to make sure everything arrived safely.  Second, there was such a fun variety of papers.  I expected a variety of colors, but was amazed by the variety of textures.  I'm a really tactile person, and I have to say I've gone through the papers several times just to feel the difference in the papers.  I needed to make a special card for a niece of mine, so I pulled out the super sparkly Silver Diamond Glitter Cardstock and Black Matte EVO Synthetic Paper that has a texture that is difficult to describe.  It's almost rubbery but smooth.  Kind of like vinyl?   I don't quite have the words, but I love the way it feels and it was absolutely perfect for creating records. 
Speaking of records, these come from a the super fun Greatest Hits Bundle by Concord and 9th. I used the Greatest Hits Dies to cut the records, music notes, and stars on my card.  
I built the sentiment with several different sets.   I selectively inked some words from the Perfect Match Stamp Set to get "for the".  Then I used the gorgeous "record" and it's shadow from the For the Record Die Set, cutting it in lilac and the Silver Diamond Glitter Cardstock.  Isn't the sparkle of that paper amazing?!  I loved it so much that I used it again for the oval shape from the For the Record Dies to anchor the records and all the sentiment pieces. Finally I added a banner with a sentiment from the Greatest Hits Stamp Set in Papertrey's Aqua Mist.
I used C9's Triangle Background Dies on my card base and ended with a happy sigh.  This card is so totally my niece, and I absolutely love it.  The fabulous Your Paper Insider papers really made it special.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  It makes me happy to be able to share with others. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, friends!
