Welcome to Makeover Monday!!  (a day late)

The photos of this card don’t show a huge difference from the Simply Sunday version.  However, I did add some elements that I will point out.

I change the die cut behind the sentiment to Gold Foil and added one as well.  In addition, I added a die cut from the Peaceful Moments Bundle and some gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

Simple Sunday – Fine Art Floral

Thinking of You Card created with the Fine Art Floral DSP & the Golden Garden DSP.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Simple Sunday, #Handmade Cards, #Paper Crafts, #Art Gallery Bundle

Welcome to Simple Sunday!!

Today’s card is simple, but very elegant.  To create this card, I simply layered a piece of the Golden Garden Designer Series Paper directly over top of a piece of Fine Art Floral DSP of the same size.

The Metallic Edged Ribbon is colored to match with a Poppy Parade Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker.

The sentiment is from the Happy Thoughts stamp set.  

I also added a few Metallic Pearls.

For this week’s tutorial, I am using the True Love Designer Series Paper.  One of the great features about this paper is that you can color it any color you would like with our Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I chose to use Seaside Spray and Soft Sea Foam.

If you need a card in a hurry, this is a great option.  You can color it or simply leave it black and white.

I also colored and fussy cut one of the flowers for the inside of the card.  I added a strip of DSP and a small bow and it was just enough to spruce up the inside.  I hope you like this card.
