A Fun Paper Challenge

Last month I posted a card HERE that I created for a fun challenge my friend and upline, Susan Itell, invited her downline to participate in.  Susan sends us various elements and we’re come up with a card.  It’s always interesting to see how everyone has such different ideas using the same elements.

Here’s the card I came up with this month…

I forgot to take a picture of my packet but it contained a piece of Soft Suede and Soft Sky card stock along with a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Coffee Break DSP collection and a Delicate White Doilie.  The card I created is simple.  However, I think that the DSP pattern and doilie really give it life!

Here’s the details

  • The card base is Whisper White thick card stock.
  • The DSP is cut at 5 1/2″ x 2 1/2″.  I cut strips from the Soft Suede and Soft Sky card stock to create a striped border.
  • The sentiment, from One Big Meaning stamp set, is stamped in Soft Suede ink and cut with a circle from the Stitched Shapes framelits then layered on a Soft Suede scalloped circle and Soft Sky circle from the Layering Circles framelits.
  •  The Soft Suede circle is popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the entire medallion is glued to the doilie which is glued directly to the card.

  • A few more strips of leftover card stock and DSP gives the inside a coordinated look.  I left it blank for a personal note.

  • Again, just a few leftover pieces and the envelope ties in with the card nicely.

Like I said this card was very simple to make with minimal supplies but I am really pleased with the result.  I’ll be anxious to see what my teammates came up with, too.  Oh, I did I mention that in the package Susan sent there was a BIG and so delicious homemade Ginger Snap cookie!  What a treat!

There’s still a week left to take advantage of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper Sale.  Check out the flyer HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Take care,
