Simply Beautiful

You don't always need to make things complicated or use a special technique to make a card beautiful. Sometimes the simplest of cards is the most beautiful, and this one that I made is a great example.

What makes this card so beautiful, I think, is the Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Thougthful Journey DSP has watercolored landscapes that are so soft and elegant, and the colors are rich and blend so well. You can see the papers below, with the one I decided to use on my card pulled out to be showcased.

I cut the DSP piece so it measures 3 3/4" x 5", then adhered it to a card base that I cut 4 1/4" x 11", then folded in half. The next beautiful element is the archway that comes from the Garden Meadow Dies. Check out how pretty those dies are. They are sold separately, or better yet, part of a bundle with the coordinating stamp set in Stampin' Up!®'s Online Exclusives. Note that I did use the stamp set for its "Thinking of You" sentiment, too.

I cut the arch from the center of a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Blackberry Bliss cardstock, which I adhered over the DSP using Stampin' Up!'s Foam Adhesive Strips. The grass was cut from a 4" x 2" piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the amazing grass die (see the dies photo above - it's on the bottom left).

For a list of all the supplies I used on this card, along with links to those products in my online store, check out the bottom of this blog post. You can also watch here as I put this card together.

Let's talk for a minute about bundles and how amazing they are. They're two coordinating products, sold together at a discounted price. Stampin' Up! sells both punch and stamp set and die and stamp set bundles. Bundles are sold at 10% off the price we'd pay if purchased separately. During the month of June 2024 only, you can purchase DIE and stamp set bundles for an EXTRA 10% off! You can check out the sale bundles in my online store and contact me with any questions. But wait! There's more! Our Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines are also 10% off this month. Both the white and the Boho Blue Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines and the large Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine are included in the sale. It's time to take the leap with these amazing deals!

Happy bundling!
