Classic botanicals in Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper creates stunning greeting cards


  • Stampin' Up! Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper
  • Video unboxing of May Celebrating In Color Paper Pumpkin
  • Become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator During May for a bonus In Color Starter Kit Special
I have a standard card layout to show off stunning new Designer Series Papers, and I'm using it today to showcase one of the prints in the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper pack. This floral print just pops off the page.  I paired it with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Cardstock, added a White Frayed Ribbon and bow, stamped a sentiment from the Cottage Rose Stamp Set onto a Whisper White strip, and finished the card by adding a few Brushed Copper Dots.  Easy peezie! You'll enjoy exploring ideas with the Abigail Rose Suite  from the Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.    Add it to your Shopping List today! 

Subtle neutral botanical images make this handmade greeting card special

Today's card uses a base card of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Then I matted a print from the Abigail Rose 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper Pack with Early Espresso.

I created a ribbon bow using the White Frayed Ribbon, and found that because of its bulk, I needed to add Dimensionals behind the layers to avoid a bumpy card.  Then I selected sentiments from the coordinating Cottage Rose Stamp Set, and stamped them in Early Espresso ink onto scraps of Whisper White.  The sentiments are also popped up on Dimensionals.

To complete the card, I scattered a few Copper Brushed Metallic Dots, and my card was finished.  This card takes only minutes to create, which is why it is one of my go-to designs when I want to show off a beautiful Designer Series Paper.

Below are the tools used to create these cards.
