Simply Sunday: Flowering Foils in Espresso

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

For the past few days I’ve been sharing cards made with the fabulous Flowering Foils Specialty Designer paper, and today you will see another pattern in it’s purest form. Today’s Simply Sunday will highlight this special paper. With the floral pattern and the Rose Gold and Silver foil you really don’t need much more …

I really wanted to pull the gold tones out of today’s card so I used Early Espresso as my card base… it compliments the colors nicely.  When your designer paper is so intricate or stunning, you really don’t have to do anything to it if you choose to just highlight the paper.  However, this designer paper also allows you to have some fun coloring it and more.  Check out this video for some tips and more samples …

I chose my greeting from the Free As A Bird stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  I always like to go back into my older stamps as well as the ones in the Mini catalogs … they are all great.  I used the Timeless Label punch again to punch out my greeting. I also punched out a piece of Early Espresso and cut that in half to create the illusion of a mat.

I wanted to finish off my greeting with a touch of bling so I used the Rhinestones and colored it with the Bronze Stampin’ Blend. I think it added a nice touch to the card and they added a little more texture to the card.  To add a little dimension, I popped up my greeting with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This angle really highlights the foils in this card and the added dimension.  We all need quick -n- easy cards sometimes and with the beautiful designer papers, and I am loving the new Flowering Foils Designer paper! Perfect for my Simply Sunday post today … don’t you think?  You can earn this amazing new Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper for FREE! during Sale-A-Bration.
