Product Shuffle : Corrugated cardstock

Good morning!

Have you ever been confronted with a piece of paper that was so pretty that you just did not want to cut into it?  It used to happen to me all the time.  I now take a deep breath and just cut (sometimes with my eyes closed while I slice the paper in my trimmer).  This is how I felt with the collection I played with this week.  My Mind's Eye Ashbury Heights collection is simply breathtaking.  It has a mixture of patterns and graphics with a touch of mettalic that is really very beautifull
Along with the paper, stickers and chipboard buttons that coordinated with this collection, I also had a few sheets of Fancy Pants Designs corrugated cardstock.  Much like the pattern paper, I sometimes feel intimidated with this product and find it difficult to use on a layout.  When I do use it, it's usually as a photo matte. 
So here is what I came up with.  First of all I took my scissors and fussy cut the red flowers with stem from the pattern paper.  I then cut a flower pot shape out of the corrugated cardstock. 
I then punched circles out of two different sheets.  The circles were cut in half to create a layered scallop edge.   
I then cut a larger circle that I placed underneath my picture.  I love how the corrugated cardstock adds dimension to any layout. You could easily use any punch and create accent pieces out of the corrugated paper.   Here is the finished project
To complete the layout, I used lots of My Mind's Eye including the backgroung paper, the pattern paper, stickers, chipboard buttons and badge button. I also used Fancy Pants corrugated sheets,  Studio Calico acetate butterflies, CTMH ribbon and American crafts alphabet stickers.
I hope you like it.  Please comment and tell us your favorite way to use corrugated or crimped paper.
