PPA #275 – Beautiful Bunch Note

The challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts is a very autumnal color combination.


Despite these colors reminding my of Autumn, I chose a general card theme for my entry.  This is a simple card with no sentiments that can be used for any number of occasions.  I like to have a few of these around…just in case.

The centerpiece of this card is the flower stamped in Blackberry Bliss from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set.  I stamped the center using the same set in Tangelo Twist and punch it out with the 7/8″ scalloped punch.  My layout is pretty straightforward and I used DSP from the In-Color Designer Series Paper Stacks.  However, the Blackberry Bliss is from last year’s retired stack.  The ribbon is also last year’s Tangelo Twist ribbon.

I added a few rhinestones for a little added sparkle and they seem to do just the trick on this card.  I love how something so simple makes the card a little more special.  The flower and the center are both popped up with dimensionals.

I left the inside blank but embellished it with a little DSP.  The envelope is lined with some DSP using the Envelope Liners Framelits.  These quick little enhancements really complete a project and truly customized it.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed this “any occasion” card.  I appreciate your comments and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
