I was going through the cards I had photographed recently and realized that I made this card a while back but had never shared it here on the blog. So, why not share it today!
I’m usually such a hoarder with my designer series paper that I have a hard time using large pieces of patterns. But I love how the paper from the Sale-a-Bration catalog has such pretty prints and they look great as backgrounds that when I saw this card on pinterest I knew I had to give it a try!
Fun side story – I had pinned this card and was going to work on it later in the day when my good friend Annie Lee came by and was showing me some of the cards she had made for her Card Buffet class. Turns out she made this card and had an extra card kit with her she had brought for me to make! We had both found and loved the same card design – she was just faster to get it made than me! Guess it goes to show great card designs really do move through the crafting world thanks to Pinterest.
But back to the card, because this is almost completely about the paper, it goes together really quickly! Plus, because the patterns in the Sweet Sorbet paper match the stamps in the Petal Parade designer paper, you can add a few accent flowers to your card and have it all tie in!
Both this paper set and the stamps are only going to be around through March 31st, so don’t miss out!
