Here we go.......

Using Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Papers makes designing projects a breeze! The colors were pulled from the paper - Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. I mimicked the flower image in the paper by first embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Square Lattice Folder and then punching it out with 1-3/4" Scallop Punch.

Supplies Used
Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral cardstock
Calypso Coral ink
Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon
Floral District Designer Series Paper
Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder
Create a Cupcake stamp set ( Happy Birthday )
Bitty Banners Framelit
1-3/4" Scallop punch
Square Lattice Embossing Folder

Embossing Folders add so much to a card. I used the Fancy Fan folder on this card leaving space at the bottom to stamp my sentiment. The rounded corners add a bit of softness to the design. I used Sahara Sand cardstock and stamped the butterflies in the same color. I wanted to keep the look soft. The piece of Twitterpated Designer Paper adds just enough color to make it interesting and not boring.

Supplies Used
Sahara Sand and Whisper White cardstock
Sahara Sand ink
Twitterpated Designer Series Paper
Loving Thoughts stamp set
Linen Thread
3/16" Corner punch

This card is a 4-1/4" square embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder and Needlepoint Border leaving room on the bottom for ribbon this time instead of a sentiment. Just two colors - Sahara Sand and Primrose Petals. A simple, sweet card to give to someone who needs get well wishes!

Supplies Used
Sahara Sand and Whisper White cardstock
Primrose Petals ink and Core'dinations Cardstock
Stitched Satin Ribbon - Primrose Petals
Teeny Tiny wishes stamp set

Wouldn't you love to receive a gift in this box?! I made a belly band to fit around the Kraft Gift Box so that the recipient can just slide it off to get to the goodies inside without ripping it apart.

 The center flower was made using the cupcake liners that come in the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit in the Spring Catalog.

This butterfly image is soft and lacy looking which is why I used the Doilies. The Daffodil Delight adds that pop of color!

Supplies Used
Kraft Gift Box
Tea Lace Paper Doilies
Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit - cupcake liners, center brad and sentiment
Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon
Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon
Epic Day Designer Series paper
Pool Party ink
