I love making paper greeting cards that are easy and gorgeous where the paper works FOR me. This is exactly one of those types of cards – take a look:
Wow, right? I am almost embarrassed to tell you how ridiculously easy this card is to make. And it's all due to the paper – I love it and I only recently ordered it for myself – what was I waiting for? The catalog really doesn't do it any justice in showcasing how truly awesome it is.
This paper is from the Serene Scenery Paper Stack and there are 4 each of all of the 6″ X 6″ sheets in each stack. I started with the whole sheet and cut it at 4″ wide. Then cut off 3/4″ at the bottom. This will leave you with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel and a 3/4″ x 4″ strip.
Since most of the paper from SU is double sided, when you flip over the 3/4″ section, you have the green and white polka dots – that strip now will perfectly support your sentiment so it doesn't get lost. And can we talk about that sentiment? I was so excited when I realized this ONE stamp said everything I was thinking. Stampin' Up! is REALLY stepping up their greetings game!
And look at the lighting on that paper – can you stand it? Here's a look head on so you can really appreciate it:
Isn't that just gorgeous? It looks even more amazing in person. Here are the products I used to make this card:
Here's another look at the way the greeting is “anchored” by my scrap strip:
So pretty! And do you remember the 2″ strip that we are left with?
Coming soon… I will share with you another idea so you can use that and make another card. See you then – but grab the paper now before it is gone! It's on the retiring list and it's been a popular item so don't miss out. Stockpile paper you love and you will have enough to be making paper greeting cards for-EVAH!
