I have to admit it….I can’t afford everything — I WISH I could buy the entire Stampin’ Up! catalog, but alas….I cannot. SO — one thing I love to do is use Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous Designer Specialty Papers to create cards. Take a look at these simple and beautiful sympathy cards made with the Beauty of the Earth Designer Specialty Papers! Here are two sympathy cards I made today:
See that beautiful watercoloring? THAT’S THE PAPER! I simply added a card base, and a coordinating panel of cardstock, and the paper does the rest. I love the soft and soothing shades of Merry Merlot, Misty Moonlight, and Cinnamon Cider. Here’s what the entire set of paper looks like. They’re stunning:
Do you see the one pattern I chose for my card? It’s right there, and all you have to do is cut it! And the best part? There is a Designer Series Paper Sale going on this month of July! Go HERE to see all the papers that are 15% off!
I used Cinnamon Cider for one card base, and Basic White for another Card base. The Misty Moonlight and Merry Merlot panels were cut at 5 1/4″ by 4″. Then I simply cut a panel of the DSP at 3 7/8″ by 5 1/8″. I adhered the two panels to the card base. The sentiment is from an older Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Heal Your Heart. I backed each sentiment panel with a little slice of coordinating cardstock, and popped them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals after having attached a few rounds of linen thread to the back. The embellishments are from the Elegant Faceted Gems. All the products I used for this project can be found at the bottom of this post.
