As I flipped through my new edition of PaperCrafts magazine, I was inspired by the “Stunning Celebration Card” on page 55. It was a striking red and white paisley card with a bright red flower. I just love paisley patterned stamps and paper, so I thought it was high time I use some pretty blue paisley paper from Stampin’ Up! The closest blue I had to the paper was “Ballet Blue” from Stampin’ Up!, so I used it for the card base and accent. I also used a fun argyle punch from EK Success. I bought it months ago and never quite had the right card to use it with.
As I made the card, I thought it would be a nice card for a friend of mine who is a Stampin Up! Demonstrator in Guam. She flew out to Washington State, where she’s from, and we went to a Mariners game together. We met on Twitter with a common love of card-making, and it was fun to see her in person! So this is her “thanks – it was so nice to meet you” card. I really hope it arrived before I shared this post!
Thank you for reading my blog. 🙂
