Sweet Shower Card

I am LOVING the Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes set from the new Occasions Mini!  For this card, first I threaded 1/8" taffeta ribbon in Pretty in Pink (retired) through the design & tied a simple knot.  Then I backed the die cut front of the card with Blushing Bride cardstock, trimmed the edge to match the die cut with scissors and added some Pearl Embellishments.  Finally, I punched out a Scalloped Oval from textured Blushing Bride, pierced the scallops with my Paper Piercer, and added an Oval Punch stamped with a phrase from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Pretty in Pink.  The envelopes to this set are Blushing Bride, but notice how even though I used two different shades of pink, it still all works because Stampin' Up! colors go so well together!  This is going to a friend's daughter-in-law for an upcoming baby shower this month :)  Can you tell she's expecting a little girl?!

I am not kidding when I tell you this card took me all of about TEN MINUTES to make!  The only cutting I had to do was the Blushing Bride panel for the back of the die cut design.  The other design in this package is a beautiful heart die cut, just perfect for Valentine's Day or even a wedding or bridal shower card.  This set is PERFECT for when you need a pretty card on the quick & dirty!  Even if you don't choose to embellish them, they are gorgeous right out of the package.

The Designer Cuts set is only $9.95 and comes with 8 cards and envelopes, 4 each of two different die cut designs.  While the envelopes are all Blushing Bride, you could easily switch those out to any other color A2 envelope you have in your stash & customize these cards to any color scheme.  Head on over to my online store to order yours now!

Happy stampin'!
