This design originally was created for Annette, the June hostess in my Stampers Club who needed a “fun and funky birthday card”. After a bit of panic, this is what I came up with. I love how using different Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers and tools can create different looks for my projects. The combination of the This and That Epic Day Designer Series Paper, with its grungy look, and the Epic Day This and That Washi Tape makes this card design more funky than my typical “clean classic” looking cards . The Label Love bundle contains the stamp set and coordinating punch for the sentiment. A bit of linen thread and it’s done. This particular piece of DSP has lots of descriptive words on it – so great for a scrapbook page or like in this case, a card for someone special. Once again, if you’re looking for an easy cue as to colour combinations, look at the back of your Designer Series Paper package – it has listed the colours used within, so just grab those colours and you’re good to go! In this case, it’s Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral.
