Paisleys & Posies Thankful, Grateful, Blessed card

A quick and easy card made using the Paisleys & Posies stamp set and coordinating Paisleys Framelits Dies. These two products come together in a bundle with a 10% savings, or they can be purchased separately. I also used a touch of the Petals & Paisleys Designer Paper.

Here are the details:
  • Cajun Craze card base - 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2" and folded for the card
  • Very Vanilla cardstock layer - 3-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Petals & Paisleys paper - 1/2" x 5-1/2" and adhered to the sides of the vanilla cardstock
  • Ink colors - Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede
  • I stamped three of the images and cut them out using the matching framelit and popped them up on the card with dimensionals 
What I love most about Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Papers, besides the designs, is easily picking a color scheme for my project based on the colors in the paper which of course are our exclusive colors. I just grab my ink pads and cardstock and create!

Paisleys & Posies Card

Create a card  using the Paisleys & Posies stamp set and coordinating designer paper. I added a few other elements to complete this card.

  • Mint Macaron card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 folded in half
  • Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper 5-1/4 x 4 
  • Very Vanilla layer 3-3/4 x 5
  • Very Vanilla piece for the sentiment 1/2 x 4 , stamped with Basic Gray ink, sponged edges in Mint Macaron, wrap a piece of Copper Thread around the end
  • I stamped the large paisley using Rich Razzleberry ink and colored in using Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Write Markers
  • Leaf image stamped using Delightful Dijon ink
  • I added two rows of washi tape and cut a piece of Petals paper 1/2 x 3-3/4 for the bottom   

It's always fun to make the inside look pretty too! I used a piece of washi tape on top of the 3-3/4 piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the leaf image above a piece of the designer paper cut 1/2 x 3-3/4.
