A Little Old Meets Very New!

Mixing some older decorative paper "Le Jardin" with the new stamp set "Wow Flowers." I pre-orded this set because I thought it would be a very versatile set. It also has a "Thank You" image with it. This image has a flower in the "o" of the word you. With room for a brad in the center or to even punch out the center. I'm going to play with this set a bit and see what I can come up with. And the other image is a flower but it could pass for a snowflake. The ends of the flower part have a large dot on them that could be punched out or could accommodate brads. It looks like it has a lot of potential too. I used two of the stamps in that set on this card. I love the little "birthday wishes" and as you can see it fits nicely in the word window punch. And my assumption here is that punch will be in the new catalog!!! Hope so, I LOVE using it for many things!!

SO onto this card. I used the decorative paper as my backgrounds. There is very little stamping on this card. The birthday circle and the words is pretty much it. I stamped the birthday wishes and punched it out with the 1" circle punch. I stamped the image again using So Saffron ink and cut out the flower. I set it on top of the flower in the circle I had punched out and poked a hole in the two of them for my brad. I layered it on top of Always Artichoke and Sahara Sand squares. I used the ticket corner punch on the larger corners. I added a little Artichoke ribbon and tied a bow.

It was a pretty simple card to make and very fun. I may use up a lot of my decorative papers on some more cards like this. My stash is getting pretty big. I need to start using them more or purchase them less. Hmmm, which one is more doable for me???? We know I can't NOT buy the new stuff!!! LOL

I designed a bracelet yesterday and now I'm off to make one and write down the directions as I work on it. I'd rather just design them!!! I'll post a photo of it tomorrow!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

Great but VERY simple card to make yet so elegant!!! I may be casing this for my next class, at least the layout, using slightly different stamps!! Beautiful use of DP!
