I’ve been going through my Designer Series Paper to check on what I haven’t used. These patterns from the Delightfully Eclectic DSP are, without a doubt, retro and fun. “Delightfully Eclectic” is a large 12″ x 12″ paper pack that includes a bounty of paper designs that will nourish your personal style and be suited for any occasion. There are 48 sheets that include 4 each of 12 designs.

Today’s card is a simple design that you can use for any coordinating patterned paper you may have.

So, let’s make a card!

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • The Thick Basic White card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • There’s a Basic White mat layer under the black and white patterned paper. I cut it at 3 3/8″ x 4 3/8″.
  • The black and white patterned paper layer is 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.
  • The Fresh Freesia floral layer is 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.
  • The Basic Black die cut circle is about 2″ in diameter.
  • The Basic White sentiment strip is a die cut from the Something Fancy Dies. It measures about 1/2″ x 2 1/2″. I stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • The flowers (from the Peral Park stamp set), are stamped with Tuxedo Black ink. I added color with my Fresh Freesia Blends. They’re punched with the coordinating punch.
  • I used Granny Apple Green ink to stamp the leaves.
  • The layers are adhered to the card base with liquid glue, and the elements are attached with Dimensionals.
  • I stamped the inside with a sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set, and flowers from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set.

This is an exciting week for us Demonstrators at Stampin’ Up!. We will be able to preview the upcoming September – December Mini Catalog on Wednesday. This means that we’ll have a chance to see the new Fall and Holiday products. Coming in August, there will undoubtedly be amaing Sneak Peeks for you. Be sure to check in.

So, pull out some fun patterned paper, cut a few layers, add a circle and some flowers, and create a happy birthday wish!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
