Hello and Happy Monday to everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a pretty Easter card to share with you.
Check out this gorgeous paper from the New Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments 8 x 8 paper pad! I love Graphic 45 paper! In the past I never wanted to cut into the images because they were so beautiful but then I started to look at it a little differently. Since the paper is so beautiful you can use one of the images and some of the patterns and very quickly and easy you can have a gorgeous card with very little work because the paper does all the work for you! Just like the card I am sharing today--it might look hard or like it took a long time but it was actually pretty easy to put together--beautiful paper, a few die cuts, some flowers and pearls = Gorgeous card! ;-)
For the base of the card I used a light aqua cardstock. Then to create the mats and die cuts I used S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A and S6-012 5x7 Mystical Embrace. For the mat I used some floral pattern paper from the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments 8 x 8 paper pad and for the die cut I used simply smooth ivory cardstock. I layered these die cuts on to the front of the card and used 3D Foam Squares in between the layers. Then I fussy cut one of the images from the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments 8 x 8 paper pad and added flourish die cuts to the top and bottom. To create the flourish die cuts I used one of the die templates from the S2-069 Outrageous Butterfly set.
Here is a close up of the beautiful Easter image. I fussy cut the Easter Greetings banner and added that to the top of the card. To finish off the card I added some Prima-Audrey Flowers-Turquoise, Prima-Mini Rose Stems Anna Marie Flowers and Melissa Frances Cream Pearls.
I hope you enjoyed the card today and don't be afraid to cut in to your beautiful pattern papers!
