This really is a quick and easy card with the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper. And if necessary, you can make one even quicker and easier probably than this one! Sometimes we need something simple and that can suit the occasion on a moment’s notice, and this card can do that just by the greeting that you add to it!
I started with a card base using the Thick Whisper White Cardstock, which is just a little heavier weight than the regular Whisper White Cardstock. The regular is okay, the Thick is just a little bit nicer to use on a simple card, a little sturdier. You can make the card base however you like, but for this card I cut the paper 4 1/4″ x 11″ with the fold at the top at 5 1/2″. You could even cut it like this but turn it sideways so the fold is on the left, but it would be wider than a regular card and not as tall. Just a slightly different look if you are in the mood for change!
The Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper is beautiful and comes in all the new In Colors. This pattern is Fresh Fig. To jazz it up, I used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. If you don’t have this punch yet, just use strips of Fresh Fig Cardstock down the sides. But this punch really does make a pretty accent along an edge so I do like it.
Now if I had the Fresh Fig 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon, I would have used that, but since I didn’t, I just used a strip of cardstock behind the greeting. You wouldn’t have to do this.
The greeting is made with the Label Me Pretty Bundle, a combination of the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set and the Pretty Label Punch. You can buy them separately, but the Bundle will save you 10%. To help the label stand out a little more against the designer paper, I just punched another label out of the Fresh Fig Cardstock and cut it in half from side to side, then glued it underneath the label for a layer. That leaves a tiny bit on the sides open, which wouldn’t have showed against the cardstock strip I had underneath, but I did punch another label and just cut off the sides and glued those under the sides of the label for a layer on each end. Tiny detail, but you can do it if you want! And why not add a couple of Rhinestone Jewels on the label as well?!
