Layering Leaves Thank You Card
For my project, I chose to use the Layering Leaves stamp set. (Find it on page 96 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.) I just love the font styles delivered in this set. I paired the thank you sentiment (heat embossed with white embossing powder) with an fun and easy way to use Designer Series Paper that showcase flowers.
The card above features just one of the flower-themed pieces from the Inked Botanicals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (DSP). You can get four cards from one sheet of 6 x 6 DSP. You just need three pieces measuring 3 inches x 1 inch for each card. (Note: If you use DSP as a layer, you’ll also need another sheet. Or, you could use embossed card stock, similar to the card below.) Layer these pieces on a coordinating piece of card stock measuring 3 1/4 inches x 4 1/2 inches. Wrap a ribbon around this layer before attaching it to a piece of either card stock or DSP measuring 5 1/4 x 4. Then add this all to the card base.
For the card above, I chose a flower design from the Delightfully Eclectic 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. The coordinating colors I used include Basic Black and Fresh Freesia.
Don’t you love how the DSP changes the whole look of the card? Imagine all of the great possibilities with Stampin’ Up!’s wide array of available patterned paper.
