I recently hosted a special card class featuring the Fresh Fruit stamp set and Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper! Sometimes it is a lot of fun to challenge yourself by picking a theme, or limiting your stamp and paper choices. We made 6 cards for the class and a special bonus card I will feature in my blog tomorrow.
This paper is gorgeous, original artwork from a Stampin'Up! artist and reproduced on high quality two-sided paper. I love the fresh, summery colors and there are some nice complimentary stripes, etc. to go with it. The stamp set is also amazing with some incredible sentiments as well as watercolor two-step fruit images. The above picture shows a set of three birthday cards made using the notecard/envelope set SU offers. Here are the other three cards:
As you can see, we added some special embellishments with ribbon, bling, doilies, twine and buttons. Don't forget to check your stash of embellishments from time to time. You may find the perfect complement to your card!
Check out the supplies below and more from our catalog (link is on the right side of the blog) and get started on creating some beautiful handmade cards of your own today! Don't know where to start?
