Another New Color Stampin'Up! Linen Thread
Pretty Card Without Coloring

Gorgeous color but no coloring--fastest card ever!

Today I'm going to show you a card with Gorgeous Color But No Coloring -- Fastest Card Ever! 8-6-19 Bird Ballad DSP

What do you think? Isn't that beautiful--and no coloring at all! I used a cut from the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper for the focal point...just a small Espresso border around it and you have one beautiful card. I used the Stitched Shapes oval die to cut out exactly the image I wanted...there are several sheets in the packet that lend themselves to this type of focal points on the it's a great investment.

One of the useful features of this card is that there is no Greeting on the front--this means you have a card ready to go for any occasion--birthday, sympathy (or is that the same thing for some of us --LOL), get well, thinking of could even be a wedding card! 

If you are like's very difficult for me to cut into a pack of Designer paper--so I've begun purchasing 2 packages--one I can "save" so I'll always have it and the other one I can cut into! Crazy thinking, I know--but it works for me!
