Natural Congrats Ballad

I like all of the colors on this designer series paper (DSP). You can choose to highlight any one of them simply by choosing it as your card base. I chose Soft Suede on one card and Calypso Coral for another one. What color would you choose?

   Giftable Greetings: Paper Pumpkin, Aug., 2017

   Soft Suede A-2, or Calypso Coral A-2
   Bird Ballad DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)
   Tag - Left-Over Paper Pumpkin



   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Expressions Natural Elements
   Glue Dots

First, I adhered the DSP panel onto a card base.

Next, I adhered a tag onto the DSP. One tag was blank, and the other one was pre-printed in Calypso Coral.

I then attached a wooden Congrats from the Expressions Natural Elements. I used glued dots to attach it to the tag.

Lastly, I added rhinestones and a basic white panel to the inside of the card. 

Here is the other card showing Calypso Coral as the card base:

  1. Two wonderful congratulations cards. I recently was gifted a box of wood embellishments and have pulled them out to get inspired to use them.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. I too still have quite a few wooden elements to go through. I found that if I at least keep one pack out in the open, I will remember to use them all. Happy stamping!

  2. You made two very nice cards. If I had to choose, I would go with the Calypso Coral, but both are great! The DSP is superb!

    1. Thank you, Fonda. I like the Calypso Coral one as well. Still, all of these colors are beautiful. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. LOL! I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your ideas. Happy thoughts and happy stamping!
