Today I put a pack of designer paper on my desk - Perennial Essence.
I thought I would make 2 cards, using one sheet as both sides are so pretty. I also got out a pack of Stampin'Up note cards and envelopes as they are that bit smaller so simpler cards are better.
I started with the purpleish designer paper first, love this one, I should have used Blackberry Bliss and Petal Pink card but I don't have any left of either of these colours so I have used Rich Razzleberry and the new Incolour 'Purple Posy'.
My base cards are very vanilla so I picker ribbon to match. That is edged in gold which linked in the yellow centres of the flowers and then added a gold faceted gem to the centre of my daisy which has been fussy cut from the stamped Daisy Lane set. I have also daubed the end of the petals. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays set. To finish the card off I covered the envelope flap with matching designer paper.
The second card uses the same paper but the other side. So two great designs on one sheet.
Again I have matched the card colours, Flirty Flamingo and crushed curry. I wasn't so keen on the as matt layers so I used the lovely pink and my matt layer on its own then a thin strip of the crushed curry to mount the sentiment on. This sentiment is from the Frosted Blooms set which is another of my favourites. Another fussy cut daisy from Daisy Lane this time I have daubed the centre of the flower and just the tips of the petals. I have used the Wink of Stella pen on the centre of the flower. Once more I have added the designer paper to the envelope flap.
There are five other sheets to check out in the pack. I think these would make a lovely little set of cards that fit in one of my tins. So maybe there is more to come on this story.
