Card Ideas Using Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper

I'm finding so many ways to use the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  Today's card is a fast, simple card for a friend or for someone who is healing from an illness or injury.  The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is part of the Perennial Essence Suite, including the new Floral essence stamp set and the Perennial Flower Punch Bundle.   If your new 2019-2010 annual Stampin' Up! catalog has arrived, take a look at page 107-108 to see all of the elements in this new suite.  Then download the Shopping List below and add this beautiful paper to your first order from the catalog with it goes live on June 4.         

This card will take you only a few minutes to cut and assemble.  It is a common layout that I've used for cards throughout the years because it take very few supplies, goes together quickly, yet looks different with each Designer Series Paper, ribbons or sentiment(s) you use.  One of the ways to create cards quickly is to assemble a couple of dozen card layouts to use as templates that you've used in the past that you can use as templates for new cards, like this one.  Save this one to your Pinterest boards now so its ready for future use, in addition to using it with your order of Perennial Essence designer Series Paper.

The basecard for this card is the new In Color, Purple Posey.  Then a layer of Highland Heather.  Then a Layer of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.     

I stamped one of the sentiments from the Healing Hugs Stamp set,  and another sentiment from the Love what You Do Stamp Set --both sets carry-over from the current catalog-- on a 2-1/4" punched circle of Purple Posey.  The ink used on the sentiments was Highland Heather. The sentiment circles were accented with Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets, also a carry-over from current catalogs. 

The bows are a triple bow of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.
