Handmade Card using 2021 Sale-a-bration PAPER BLOOMS DESIGNER SERIES PAPER from Stampin' Up!

Hello My Crafting Friends,

Today I am sharing another card from my Stampin’ Up 2021 Artisan Design Team showcase project in January 2021.

If you would like to see all my projects together you can visit my blog post here:

For this card I wanted to focus on the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper which is a FREE Sale-a-bration item you can receive when you purchase $50 in Jan-Feb 2021. I love the fun flower images in this paper and wanted to cut some out to create a beautiful bouquet. I also used the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper background to give some texture and shine. The organic images of the flowers play against the strong geometric lines of the background, So fun! At the end, I also share a couple quick ideas on how you can create a similar card using different products. Make sure to take a look at those too (just incase the paper is no longer available). I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it inspires you to create something beautiful today.

1- Stamp the greeting in the center of the Night of Navy cardstock with VersaMark ink. Cover with White embossing powder and heat. Flag each end with paper snips.

2- Layer the So Saffron Cardstock under the Basic White piece, then adhere the Gold Laser-Cut Background with liquid glue by dabbing it to the back with a sponge or tissue, add to the top. Add all this to the center of the cardbase.

3- Choose about 15 different flower & leaf images. Fussy cut out each one.

4- Starting with the largest images place them in the bottom right corner in a triangular shape leaving the center open for the greeting. Add the greeting with a dimensional.

5- Next add the medium size flower/leaves around the greeting filling in any gaps and adding color evenly around.

6- Last add the small flowers/leaves with mini dimensionals.

All Done!
