Using colorful, beautiful paper as the focal point makes for a quick and easy card!

The paper I’ve used for my card comes from the Petal Garden Designer Series stack which is part of the Petal Garden Suite.  It comes with 48 sheets of double-sided 6″ x 6″ paper. The coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors are Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White.  Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to know which colors to use with any of their Designer Series Paper.  This is really important to me when I’m creating a card because I don’t want to waste my time wondering what colors go with a particular  paper.

I used Old Olive as the base of my card with a layer of Pool Party on top.

The sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral using the stamp set, You’re So Sweet and cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits. The scalloped circle is also cut out using these Framelits.

The sentiment sits on top of Pool Party card stock cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I love how these Framelits coordinate so well with the all of the Layering Framelits!

The leaf on the circle was stamped in Old Olive using the stamp set, Oh So Eclectic.  I really, really like the watercolor look of this stamp.

The card is finished off with the Glitter Enamel Dots which I’m happy to say are back in stock!
