How to Make a Card ~ Quick & Easy with Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper
I love the new Dainty Flower Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! I was able to make a bunch of gorgeous cards quickly and easily using this particular sheet of paper from the package.
I cut the paper into 5 1/2″ x 3″ pieces to get eight different pieces for cards from this one piece. See the little video above to get the diagram on how I cut the paper. And there are two pieces of this paper in each package resulting in sixteen different cards!! Wow!
And, of course, there are lots of other pieces of gorgeous Designer Series Paper in this package to make tons of other projects. You can see some of it on the matching envelope flaps in the picture and gif video above.
You can also see how I made the card by watching the replay of my video HERE.
I started with a very easy card, that is perfect for beginners who want to know how to stamp. I used Stampin’ Up!’s package of Note Cards and Envelopes for my first card.
There are 20 cards and 20 envelopes in this package. And they are precut, scored, and ready to use–perfect for beginner stampers. I then just added one of my favourite stamp sets, Go to Greetings . I love this stamp set because it has four of the greetings I use the most: Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Just a Note and Thank You. The greetings are repeated three times in the Go To Greetings stamp set and in three different fonts and sizes!! So you can pick the one that is right for your card creation.
To finish off the card, I added some ink for the greeting, and then the free Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-bration. The supplies for this beginner card will cost $77 before taxes and shipping (and it includes the Designer Series Paper). It’s a great way to get started with some basic stamping supplies.
Supplies List for Beginner Card
For the second card that I made in the video for my Friday Live series (scroll up to find the video), I added just a little more to the card to step it up a notch.
I added a layer of Rich Razzleberry cardstock under the Designer Series Paper and mounted it on larger piece of Basic White cardstock. I also added a punched-out saying using the Label me Fancy Punch.
The Label Me Fancy punch is another product I love to show beginner cardmakers. You can make quick labels for greetings or embellishments. Or turn your punch-out into a tag with the two different hole punches to choose from. I’ve also used the hole and slot punch on other tags or projects. I’ve included the full list of supplies I used on the second card below.
- Basic White (for card base): 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (folded at 4 1/4″)
- Rich Razzleberry (for mat): 5 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
- Basic White (for greeting): scrap
- Rich Razzleberry (for mat): scrap
Supplies List for Intermediate Card
The last card, using the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper, was for someone who might have a few more supplies. In terms of difficulty, it was still an easy card to put together. I’ve listed all the supplies I used for the final card below.
For this “advanced” version of the card, I added:
- a label made with a die cut
- a mat for the label in a different, but coordinating colour
- a ribbon tied into a bow
- Rhinestone Jewels
- and my favourite part, the embossed Designer Series Paper
I used the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine to cut the Something Fancy Dies and to emboss the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper. I love how this pretty paper looks like a piece of art when it is embossed with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder. Here’s a close-up for you so you can see the texture of the paper.
And of course, don’t forget to decorate your envelopes with matching paper.
