Fold it Back … and See What Blooms!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another sweet -n- simple card created with the Pleased As Punch Designer Series paper.  Let’s Fold it Back and See What Blooms!!  I’m using the cute little flower pattern and when you fold back the right hand corner, you will see the stripped pattern on the other side.

This gave me the idea to embellish the fold by punching out the sweet little flowers on the designer paper. Not all of the flowers I punched out are “full” … some are cut off by the edges of the paper but I simply tucked those edges under a full flower to hide ’em!  What you are left with is a beautiful row of blooming flowers …

 

The flowers are punched using the Small Bloom Punch which you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying amount.  Each bloom is adorned with a Rhinestone gem in the center.

The flap this is pulled back is attached with a simple Stampin’ Dimensional so the tip sits up slightly. Then I added another bloom to embellish that spot.  The bloom is also attached with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  The entire piece of designer paper is attached to a Coastal Cabana piece of carstock …

Our greeting is stamped onto the corner using the Whisper White Craft Ink and then White Emboss Powder and heat set.  I love the look of White on White … it creates a more vivid look.  The greeting comes from the Little Lady Bug stamp set.  This is also a FREE item … a special gift to our Hostesses who have sales or a party of $300 or more.

Here are the items I used to create this card … Click on any image for more information.

 

Today’s card is another example of how easy it is to create cute cards when using your favorite designer papers.  This technique can be used wit so many different papers … have fun with it.

Thanks for stopping back today and checking out another card sample using the Pleased As Punch Designer Series paper.

So … when you are working with your favorite designer paper, don’t forget to fold it back and see what blossoms. Have a great day, Linda.
