I have one of the easiest cards I have ever made to share with you today.  That being said, it is also gorgeous.  And I owe it all to the wonderful Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!  I hope you think it is as beautiful as I do.


Gorgeous Designer Series Paper

Do you agree on the paper?  This sheet of the Expressions In Ink DSP is one with an alcohol and ink creation on the back and a strip across the center like this piece on the front.  I cut it so that the majority of the beauty shows.  I think the paper is simply a WOW!!

The card base and matting were chosen from the colors in the DSP.  The base is Shaded Spruce with Soft Sea Foam as the mat.  I wanted a sentiment that was short, but went with the paper.  In the stamp set Life Is Beautiful, I found the perfect one.

***OOPS!!! I messed up with the sentiment.  As I type this and look for the stamp set, I realize it is retired!  Somehow it ended up back on the shelf with current products! I am only 6 months out of date with this set!   I apologize!!!  However, I believe it shows how a great sentiment is all you need to pair with this beautiful DSP.

For the finishing touch on the card I added one last thing.  I used the Simply Elegant Trim, which comes in gold and silver in one package.  I chose the gold trim to match the gold veins in the paper.  A simple finger bow with a glue dot and it is a finished card.
