Today we're looking anew at Using the Newly Created In Symmetry Designer Paper. Tuesday we created a whole sheet of a "new" In Symmetry Designer Paper in the colors that I wanted in my card...if you missed it...check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/06/have-you-seen-the-other-in-symmetry-designer-series-paper.html
Since we had virtually 3/4 of the sheet left we have plenty to create a couple of more cards with this new paper we designed. Here's the first one for today...
This one uses s strips cut from the designer sheet--leaving a small border of cardstock underneath adds a bit of pizzazz to the paper. A layer of black cardstock was added beneath the Flirty Flamingo and this provided a sharp contract to set off the paper. After punching the dragonflies from the copper paper, I put them through the Ornate Floral folder to add some interest and dimension to them. Adding a ribbon tied in a knot and our card is completed.
Our second card for today is quite simple and elegant...
This cards simply uses a horizontal layer of our designer paper with a Granny Apply Green backing. Again, adding a measure of Petal pink ribbon and tying a bow completes the picture. Of course, adding the Champagne rhinestones between the images on the designer paper add that last touch of sparkle that makes it elegant!
Pretty fun, right? I'll give you the card directions below followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies.
P.S. Check back Thursday to see what we do with the rest of the designer paper!
