No Stamping - Just Pretty Papers

Hi Everyone!
How is your weekend going?  Good here.  Got a bit of gardening in this afternoon.  I stayed in the shade  to stay a bit cooler.  LOL.  I was able to find time to make a  few cards this morning too.  During the week, I made a card without any stamping at all!  The main focus is the Decorative Papers.  Take a look.

Lost and Found -Blush 6x6 Paper Pad from My Mind's Eye
CS: Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla from Stampin' Up
Ribbon: Sheer Magenta from Michaels Craft Store
Die Cut-Top Notch from Stampin' Up


  • Make a 5.5 x 6.25" folded card from Very Vanilla CS
  • To the card base, add narrow strips of Rich Razzleberry between two different DP's 
  • Cut a piece of Decorative Paper with the birdcage and a piece of Rich Razzleberry with the Die Cut
  • Layer the die cut pieces letting the Rich Razzleberry extend past the edge of the DP die cut

  • Wrap a sheer Magenta ribbon around die cut piece and tie in a bow
  • Add to card front with dimensional adhesive


  • Add more of the paper on the inside.
I can use this card for any occasion.  I will simply stamp the sentiment when I go to send the card.  I think I will save this on for a special  birthday card.
