For my card design this month, I am showcasing the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper (item #149484) and coordinating Good Morning Magnolia Bundle (item #151087). This lovely clean and simple card design has an elegant feel to it and is suitable for a variety of occasions. The Good Morning Magnolia stamp set (item #149298) contains a variety of beautiful images and versatile sentiments that make it easy to create wonderful projects. I was inspired by a card design that Kylie Bertucci shared recently and couldn't wait to create my own version.
To create this card, I chose to use Basic Black cardstock for the card base and added a layer of the designer series paper for my card front. The variety of patterns in this paper pack are simply stunning and it was difficult to choose which design to feature for today's card. The particular design is probably one of my favorites and I love the way the flowers seem to pop off the page.
For the sentiment, I cut a 1 1/4" x 4 1/4" strip of Whisper White cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment image using Copper embossing powder. I created a matte for this strip with a 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" strip of Basic Black cardstock and attached it to the card front using Snail adhesive.
To complete the card design, I stamped the flower bud image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Copper embossing powder and colored the petals and leaves using Stampin' Blends Markers to mimic the flowers in the designer series paper. I then die cut the flower using the coordinating dies from the Magnolia Memory Dies (item 149578) and attached it to the sentiment with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Remember that when you order the stamp set and coordinating dies as a bundle, you save 10%.
This card is a wonderful example of how you can create simply stunning cards by letting the beautiful designer series paper do all the work for you. From one 12"x12" sheet of designer series paper, you can cut 6 card front size pieces to create 6 beautiful cards. That means that you could create 72 cards from one pack of designer series paper. What a wonderful way to create a variety of cards and get amazing value from you pretty pack.
