Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop by the team at Create with Connie & Mary. This week we are all featuring out "Favorite Designer Paper" from the Occasions or Sale-A-Bration Catalogs. My pick is the Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper:

How much simpler could card-making get when the designer paper does all the work for you? I love this paper because one side has graphically designed imagery and the other side has photographic imagery. I very quickly made five cards using the photographic imagery side. Here are individual photo's of each beautiful card:

As you can see, all five cards are identical except for the imagery. This beautiful paper is too pretty to cover and here's how I made each card:

  • Card Base: Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Bermuda Bay Cardstocks measuring 11"x 4-1/4". Score all five card bases in half at 5-1/2" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Basic Black Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4" for all five cards.
  • Layer #3: Choose 5 patterns from the Picture Perfect Designer Paper and cut to  measure 5" x 3-3/4". Glue to card fronts.
  • Layer #4: Cut banners for each card in the coordinating cardstock colors to measure 1-1/2" x 3-3/4". Snip one end into a "V" and glue about 1" from the bottom and to the left.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment using the coordinating ink colors to each card on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 1-1/4" x 3". Snip the right end into a "V" and glue over the 1st banner using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:
  • Stamp Set: Picture Perfect Birthday
  • Cardstock: Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White
  • Inks: Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay
