Today's 5 Minute Monday features this lovely card that can be created in just minutes.
The main attraction of the card is the gorgeous designer paper ~ Hello Irresistible
How beautiful is this paper?! Every piece of it is just as stunning as the last... which makes it the perfect pack of paper for creating quick cards.
In reality, one could use this paper with a sentiment to complete the whole card and the card would still be amazing!
For today's card I decided to add a little more pizzazz by cutting a sentiment border from the Sentimental Park Bundle.
Initially I had decided I wasn't going to purchase this bundle however I earned some rewards as a demonstrator so I used those to get the set FREE... one of the many perks of joining Stampin' Up!
This bundle ended up being a great score due to the versatility of the sentiments. You can mix and match to build your own sentiment allowing you to cover many occasions with just one stamp set.
The dies are so intricate and detailed, they are guaranteed to add something amazing to any card.
This bundle pairs with the Petal Park Bundle, also really cute.
It includes the stamp set and the flower punch.
Creating cards with either of these bundles or paired together has made for some extremely nice cards.
I can't wait to share them all!
The Hello Irresistible designer paper used to create this card comes in 6x6 sheets.
One full 6x6 sheet was all that was needed for the card front, a small accent on the inside of the card, and decorating the envelope.
I love when that happens.
