Stampin' Up! Floral Phrases, Floral Bouquet DSP and Delicate Floral Thinlits Day 1

Yikes, talk about a title!

Hi everyone!  I am back today with a series that includes my most favorite item from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog!!

The Floral Bouquet Designer Series Paper caught my attention the moment I first laid eyes on it.  Be still my floral, navy loving heart!  Needless to say, you can anticipate a week full of Night of Navy and Copper Embossing :)

I am really trying to start these series with a simple card and end with something more complex.  This card could not be any easier!

The easies way to create a simple, but stunning card is to let the Designer Series Paper be the focus of the card.  I absolutely adore this floral from the Floral Bouquet DSP.  The trick to combining patterns is to either use both the A and B side, as I have done here, or mix a big, bold pattern with one that is more neutral or has a much smaller pattern.

Those this card is simple, I wanted to create a powerful focal image.  To do that, I used this Congratulations sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set and used the new Copper Embossing Powder to heat emboss the sentiment.  How gorgeous is that?!?! 

I wanted to add a touch of embellishment without overwhelming the card.  If you have followed me for a while, you know one of my favorite things to do is color the White Perfect Accents with a Sharpie and add them to the card.  For this card, I used a Bronze Sharpie Marker on two of the large accents to create Copper Brads.  I love them and I love the dimension it adds to the card! 

If you love this card, just wait for the other 2 in this series.  I think they will knock your socks off!
