Simply Sunday: Simply Gorgeous Dainty Flowers Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Sunday! Today I’m sharing a super simple card that is Simply Gorgeous using the Dainty Flowers Designer paper you can get FREE during Sale-a-bration.

For those who don’t know what Sale-a-bration is, it’s Stampin’ Up!s most anticipated time of year because YOU can earn FREE “exclusive” products now through February 28th. Yes, sometimes the freebies sell out, so I don’t hesitate to get the ones I love first! Click HERE to learn more about Sale-a-bration.

Early in the week I shared a cutting technique using the Dainty Flowers (CLICK HERE to see post) and now I want to share what I did with some of the left overs! This piece is 12″ x 6″ – it’s simply cut in half, so you have another sheet just like this one (and a full one too!).

These will show the left over pieces from my first card (they are marked on the paper). Now I’d like to share my finished card and give you the simple instructions to create your own card ….

If you take a look at the layout of the Dainty Flowers paper I have “marked” … the pattern piece I chose for today’s card is on the right. My colors were chosen to highlight the daisies of Mango Melody with Early Espresso centers. The third color I used was Old Olive to bring in my greens from the designer paper.

The Early Espresso card base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and is scored and folded at 4-1/4″ (basic A-2 size). I had to trim the top off my designer paper from 6″ to 5-1/2″ to match my card base. The Mango Melody mat behind the Dainty Flowers designer paper is 5-1/2″ x 3-3/4″. Simple measurements for this simply beautiful card (the designer paper does all the work)

Speaking of this designer paper, I had to share a close up so you could see the “look” of texture that it has. We don’t have to do anything … it’s already there for us. It adds such a warm and natural look with these beautiful flowers. And the flowers, well … I have fallen in love with the “watercolor” look. It truly is a work of art, and to share this masterpiece …. just add cardstock.

And a sentiment, which comes from the Dainty Delights stamp set. I suggest the bundle so you don’t have to “fussy cut” any flowers, the dies will do that for you! I’ll share more of that with you as well. Today the sentiment was punched using the Double Oval Punch.

Just so you know, when you purchase the Dainty Delights bundle, you can chose the Dainty Flowers Designer paper for FREE! It’s a perfect pairing. I will also be hosting a Dainty Delights Class in February.

I thank you for taking time out of your Sunday and sharing it with me.

Have a beautiful day ~
