Dear Friend

Here's a designer series paper that is going away.  This DSP is the Birthday Bouquet.  It's a very interesting mix of flowers, ice cream cones and patterns.  I have found it's quite useful for beautiful cards like this one with a nice feminine look but it also works on kids cards with the ice cream cones too.  Pretty neat.


The card base is Mossy Meadow (going away!) and is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  The next layer is Blushing Bride and is a deceiving dimension.  You would think what you see it how big it is when in fact this layer covers the entire card front and measures at 4 X 5 1/4.  The DSP is then cut and layered on top of that piece which then allows the stamper to lay the ribbon down and attach it without bending, ripping or tearing papers along the way. Pretty smart!

The flower is from the Birthday Blooms Stamp set.  The flower is stamped in Blushing Bride ink (remember it's also Blushing Bride cardstock-- this color on color gives a great and simple looks and helps your crafting stay inexpensive)!  To finish off the card, this stamper added a banner of Mossy Meadow and stamped "Dear Friend" from Birthday Blooms and attached it with a Bow Paper Clip.

Remember with dark bases you want to include a lighter color on the inside so that your customer has a clear place to write.  It's so hard to read when you get a card in Night of Navy or Mossy Meadow.  

Need to purchase these items?!
