StampinByHannah Floral Friend card with Petal Promenade
So, one of the pieces of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper I have been dreading trying to cut is one that has 9 really beautiful floral frames. There I several reasons why this paper makes me nervous; they are usually sized for a US sized card base which isnt the same size as I use here in the UK, they are really really pretty and I don’t want to mess one up, and then there is the fear of just not having a clue what I am going to do with the frames once they are cut! But, I have started seeing other people make some really pretty cards with these frames. In fact I almost CASE’d THIS card from Patty Bennett to get me started, but I made this card instead.
Usually when I’m making a card using Designer Series Paper, I’ll go into the catalogue and look which Stampin’ Up! Colours are in featured, but not for this card. Instead I chose to look and see what colours my eye saw, and that turned into Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick and Shaded Spruce, none of which are officially in the paper but does that really matter?!
The frame cut from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is an awkward size for layering. To get around this I simply measured it carefully and then cut a piece of Grapefruit Grove card stock half a centimetre longer and wider before layering it onto a card base with a standard sized mat and actually it looks fine.
These frames are designed to fit the Stampin’ Up! note cards and envelopes, which they do perfectly, I just don’t use them very regularly in my crafting and as a result this particular piece of paper would usually get forgotten about!
Which of the Designer Series Paper packs are you struggling to cut?
