More Simply Beautiful Cards with the Stampin'Up! New Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper

Today we're creating More Simply Beautiful Cards with the Stampin'Up! New Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.  Tuesday we created a lovely card with this paper---if you missed it check it out here... https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/05/gorgeous-cards-with-stampinup-new-hues-of-happiness-designer-series-paper.html

Today's card is using the same sheet of designer paper as we used Tuesday. We're simply cutting the piece from the other end of the sheet and thus capturing a completely new set of colors--this time we're focusing on the Fresh Fresia but you can see a bit of the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape peeking in from the upper edge. Here's today's creations...

Today's design simply adds a border of Gorgeous Grape and a greeting. This stamp set includes several wonderful greetings to meet most needs. We added 3 of the new Fun Flower embellishments to set off the greeting and added a couple of leaf stems to add a bit of pizzazz to the design.

These simple cards are a perfect addition to your stash or when you are rushed for time and still want to send a stunning card to your recipient!  These are really good to create a stack leaving off the greeting until the time you need to send--then customize the greeting at that time. Or create a stack of greetings that are ready to add which gives you tons of options to choose from when time is of the essence.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.
