Hi Stamping Friends,
Here's a card I made for my friend's birthday. I used the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper to inspire me.
The lower portion has a piece from the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper. This is adhered to the Whisper White piece. I used the new Adorning Accents Edgelits from the Occasions Mini Catalog to die cut three strips of card stock in coordinating colors - Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade. These are layered together with SNAIL Adhesive and attached over the edge of the DSP. Lucky Limeade 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon is layered along the top edge and adhered to the back of the Whisper White card stock. Use a generous amount of SNAIL to attach to the card front. A small piece of the ribbon is slipped under and tied in a single knot.
I added a few Jewels Basic Rhinestones in several of the embossed circles for a little bling.
This is a fast and easy card to make. I stamped my birthday greetings inside, added a little strip of the designer paper to jazz it up a little bit, and you have a wow birthday card.
Check out the other great designs in the Berry Blossoms Pack. The coordinating colors are Early Expresso, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White. Might I also point out that this designer series paper coordinates with the stamp set, Fruit & Flowers (shown below).
Note: The current catalog expires on May 31st and, traditionally, the 12-Sheet packs do not carry forward. So, if you see any you love, please make a note that the catalog is ending a month earlier this year. You don't want to miss out thinking you have until June 30th!

Paper Note: You may or may not know this, but each of Stampin' Up!'s color families has an assortment pack of paper, including one each for the 2010-2012 and the 2011-2013 In Color collections. So, if you only need a sheet or half sheet of a particular color, you don't have to purchase an entire 20 sheet package of each color.
