Soft, gentle florals for handcrafted Greeting Cards with Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper

  • Order May 2024 Paper Pumpkin by Friday, May 10
Create subtle, mellow greeting cards using the Designer Series Papers from Stampin' Up! Unbounded Beauty Suite Collection.   The beautiful prints in the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper with its water colored florals and washes, and mellow stripes coordinates with the new 2024-2026 In Color Cardstock colors to create delicate yet stunning cards.  Today's card uses a color palette of Summer Splash, Basic White and a Summer Splash and Petunia Pop print from the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from Perennial Postage Stamp Set, which I just realized retired 1 May.  The Summer Splash layer is dry embossed using the Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder.    The ribbon is Petunia Pop 3/8" Bordered Ribbon, and the Petunia Pop dot on the sentiment label is from the 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots pack.

This is a fast, simple card that you can easily dress up or dress down depending on the sentiment label you select to die cut, or if you choose a simple strip of cardstock like I've used on this card.  The basecard is Summer Splash Cardstock.  Then a layer of Summer Splash Cardstock dry embossed using the Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder.  Then a layer of Basic White Cardstock framing one of the Summer Squash and Petunia Pop prints from the Unbounded Beauty 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.

    To finish the card, I used a scrap of Basic White Cardstock to use as a sentiment label.  I stamped a sentiment from the Retired Perennial Postage Stamp Set in Summer Splash Ink.  Any single line sentiment stamp would work on this layout.  I added a Petunia Pot In Color Resin Dot to the edge of my sentiment, and I added a Petunia Pop Bow from the 3/8" Bordered Ribbon to complete this card.
