While I was working on filling my shelves and reorganizing things in my "craft/computer" room, I started sorting through a stack of designer papers that I just had to have when I saw them. Many of them have been here for way too long. I remembered buying most of them but the one I used for these two cards was one that I didn't remember.
I decided that I was going to use it right away. The flower colors paired perfectly with Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wonder card stock. I covered the top half of the white card base with a strip of the dp. The piece for the bottom half was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder which also has a coordinating border folder in the set.
The flowered paper is so delicate and I didn't want to cover up much of the design. I had found the banner in a tub of stamps offs and die cuts that had been made at one of our Yahoo Group gatherings and used it for the sentiment.
For the second card I didn't use the coordinating border folder but just used a leftover strip of Wisteria Wonder card stock and then placed a banner on top of it.
I hope you enjoy seeing how you can make a pretty card without a lot of work.
NOTE: I have so much 12 x 12 dp and have decided that a single 12 x 12 sheet can make a lot of cards, and I do not normally make a lot of cards that are the same. So I have started cutting the 12 x 12 sheets into pieces that are 12 x 6. I keep one strip for myself and then cut the second one into two 6 x 6 pieces. I package a big variety of 6 x 6 sheets to sell at the semi-annual stamp sales. I was still able to get four cards made with the one strip I kept for myself and have a little left over.
Thank you for stopping by!
