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 I am only 6 months out of date with this set!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.
