In the paper pad they have various fancy papers - metallic, embossed & glossy as well as normal ones. I adore the metallic ones! The first card uses the metallic bustier paper-gorgeous! I have used my new Spellbinders Curved Border One for the 1st & 3rd card, these are fabulous to use. The 2nd card uses Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8. Also I have used the MFT Sew Nifty die & stamp set. I love the dress form and like to paper piece it.
