Simply Sunday: Magnolia Style

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card created with the stunning Magnolia Lane bundle, and it’s super quick to create yet beautiful to look at. I also have some great tips in store for you.  Many of my stampin’ friends are oh so busy, that is why I dedicate my Sunday blog posts to simple cards, and what quicker way to create gorgeous cards that with our pretty designer series paper.  The Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper is one of my favorite floral papers.

With a simple base and a piece of designer paper … you have a beautiful card.  Add your greeting and a pretty strip of ribbon and you’re done! Here’s a great tip for you … While you have your paper cutter out, cut some extra card bases, then cut your designer paper into 4″ x 6″ pieces (then cut the 6″ side down to 5-1/4) Use the extra piece of designer paper to put inside your card 🙂  Why you could create your own little card kit!! Stamp up a few greetings as well and tuck them in little box and tag it Magnolia Lane. You could do this with all of your designer paper packets (even your older ones… makin’ sure we use them)!

On today’s card, my second stampin’ tip is … I let the floral pattern of the designer paper dictate where I would put my ribbon and greeting!  We don’t want to cover up all those pretty flowers, so I found a spot that I felt was made just for my greeting … lol.  I used the greeting from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in the suite, and punched it out using the Tailored Tag punch. You’ll see I punched the mat (Early Espresso) and cut it in half … I really made the greeting show up better.

The ribbon is not in the Magnolia Lane product suite, but it should be, it matches perfectly and is so elegant.  You will find the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon on page 174 with the other ribbons.  The ribbon pack that is in the Magnolia Lane suite will be featured on tomorrows card.

I hope you enjoyed todays cards and the stampin’ tips inspire you to create your own card kits so making up a card when you need it will be super quick -n- easy. Let me know if you have any questions, or need anything… here to help.

I want to “Thank You” for hanging out with me this Sunday.

I hope you have an awesome day ~
