simply petals

Tonight's card is simple by necessity -- my stamp room has been taken over by the spirit of Halloween present. In other words, all of the stamping stuff had to be put away to make room for party decorations. So with only very limited supplies at my fingertips, I had no choice but to make a simple card.

Of course this card also showcases how easy it is to make simple cards with our double sided designer paper. I took a piece of our Polka Dots and Petals double sided designer paper and folded one side over to create a side boarder. I used the handheld rectangle punch to make two holes through which I wove some tempting turquoise ribbon. I loved the floral design of the paper and toyed with just leaving it alone, but in the end I stamped a couple of flowers in pretty in pink ink, trimmed them out and used dimensionals to attach them to the designer paper.

On the card base I stamped an outline of the flower in pretty in pink and I stamped the "happy" sentiment in tempting turquoise. And that's it -- the card was done.

Stamps: Polka Dots and Paisley
Paper: pretty in pink, whisper white, polka dots and petals double sided designer series paper
Ink: pretty in pink, tempting turquoise
Accessories: handheld rectangle punch, tempting turquoise grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
