I don't know about you but I am a paper hoarder! I can used solid cardstock all day long, till the cows come home but Designer Paper is like gold to me. I don't know why I have always had this hang up about cutting into a new piece of designer paper. It is so pretty and I think to myself "I don't want to use it up now, what if I need it for something else?" But guess what, that line of thinking just leads to the designer paper just sitting in it's original sealed package or it's paper pad! So I am taking an unofficial paper-crafting vow to dive into my designer paper and start creating!! Yeah for me! I can always buy more, right? It's only paper, very pretty paper at that, but only paper!
This card is just what I needed to get my feet wet so to speak. I used paper from the Happy Days 6x6 paper pad from Simple Stories. Love this paper pad! This is evident since I had the pad about a year and am now finally using it, see what I mean? Anyway, the card is on an A2 card base made with Kraft cardstock from PTI. I used oodles of supplies to make this a "Happy" card. Hope you like it!
I even used some scraps and adhered them to the inside to stamp the sentiment. I love how it turned out. I like the fact that it is not plain or that I didn't have to used a layer of cardstock matted on the inside for the sentiment. It adds personality and as a bonus, you are not wasting your materials!
Please stop back tomorrow, I will be showing you a card I made for my husband for Father's Day.
Thanks for coming by!
