This is the last of the nine cards that Ann, Susan and I made to swap with each other last month to prepare samples for the Holiday catalog, and it’s one of my favorite!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of Susan’s favorite materials is designer series paper, and a card can be both simple to make and beautiful when using a lovely patterned paper like this one from the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper. It coordinates so nicely with the Paisleys & Posies stamps and Paisley Framelits dies. Just a trio of die cuts in the same colors that appear on the paper – Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon – some Linen Twine and a Classy Designer Button and you’re done!
All of the colors used in this Simple Gifts card have coordinating products that you can view by clicking on the color swatches:
