Fun Designer Paper Layout

For my recent trip to Maui, I made swap cards to trade with the other demonstrators. I love all the fun variety of cards I got! Here is the card I created:

This is an awesome layout because it is so simple! Here is how to do it:

  • Cut your card base to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. (Mine is Basic Gray.)
  • Cut another layer the same color as your card base to 4″ x 5 1/4″. (Attach with dimensionals.)
  • Using any Designer Paper, cut three coordinating pieces to 3 3/4″ x 1 5/8″. Adhere using Seal+ across card front.
  • Embellish as desired!

I used the new Color & Contour bundle to cut a black scalloped label, and stamped/embossed one of the greetings in white powder. I finished with a twine bow and a few gems. Easy Peasy! Here are a few more views of the card:

Hope you enjoyed seeing my Maui card swap! Here is the supply list so you you can re-create it.

Good Morning Magnolia Wedding Card

This card was a favorite at Card Buffet! Simple and striking, the spotlight technique allows you to focus in on finer details of this gorgeous stamp without a lot of extra work. To create this card, stamp the main/large flower in Soft Suede ink on both Soft Suede and Crumb Cake cardstock. Next, choose a circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set (mine is 2 3/8″ across) and cut out part of the flower from the Crumb Cake image. Now is the fun part! Line up the smaller image over the larger one and adhere it when it’s positioned just right. Voila! You spotlighted! I also used a corner rounder on the two opposite corners of the Soft Suede piece, (best corner rounder everrrr!) and finished it off with a Coastal Cabana card base, greeting, and a few Pearls.

Last touch is a hint of Wink of Stella in the center of the flower. Simple and gorgeous.

Happy Stampin!
