The Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper has a lot of pretty patterns. One of them I used on this greeting card coordinates with the free Sale-a-bration Fresh Vintage stamp set. Even so, this card is a no stamping card.
Usually I show you the full card first, then break down the elements. Let's try a different approach today. I will start with the different Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and Ribbon/Brads Pack, both free Stampin' Up! 2012 Sale-a-bration choices.
Don't know what I mean by free Sale-a-bration choices? During the Stampin' Up! 2012 Sale-a-bration promotion (January 24 – March 31, 2012 only), you get your choice of one of the 20 Sale-a-bration products with every $50 in Stampin' Up! purchases! Naturally the total is before shipping and sales tax. No limit to how many FREE Sale-a-bration products you can earn!
Sound good? Of course. FREE is fun! Ten of the 20 Sale-a-bration products are limited-edition. After March 31, 2012 they will be gone for good. The Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and Ribbon/Brad Pack are both limited-edition products for Sale-a-bration.
Okay, let's get to my Everyday Enchantment no stamping card. Looking over all the 12 pretty patterns of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper, one stood out as much more than a background paper. With the large flower designs, it can easily be used as the focal point of a greeting card.
I started my card by cutting out a rectangle with a flower stem with two flowers on it and two more on either side. The from the same paper, I cut out the larger flowers there were fully displayed.
Did you notice how the flowers are popped up? I used Stampin' Dimensionals to give added depth and dimension to my greeting card. Here is a side view so you can really see the added dimension.
My background paper, now focal point, rectangle was given one more added touch of dimension with a flower brad from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon/Brad Pack.
The edges of many of the patterns of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper looks aged. You can see this effect well on the striped pattern.
If you are a regular follower of my stamping blog, you know how I feel about naked edges of background paper. To cover the naked edge where the two different patterns meet, I used the sheer Lucky Limeade 1/8" Organdy Ribbon from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon/Brad Pack.
Now you've seen the elements of my no stamping greeting card, let's have a look at the entire card.
When I look at this card, I don't think no stamping. Do you? I simply see a pretty card, if I do say so myself.
