Mixed Bunch #3

I love the simplicity and clean lines of this card.  I enjoy making a card with simple components that comes together looking a little fancier than it really is. 

I gathered the inspiration for my color palette from a now-retired line of Designer Series Paper, More Amore.  This is a favorite starting place for me in card design - it's so easy to create a polished look with Stampin' Up! as all the materials color-coordinate.

How to copy (and I encourage you to do so!):
  1. Cut a piece of DSP (on sale now!). to 2" x 4.25"
  2. Choose two coordinating colors (I used Primrose Petals and Pool Party) from your DSP and one coordinating neutral (I used Very Vanilla).
  3. Feel free to mix-up your sentiment.  My "Happy Mother's Day" greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set that I use all the time for many occasions.  It has just about everything you need in it!  I stamped my banner on a scrap piece of very vanilla that measures 1/2" by 2 1/2".
  4. Don't forget to finish off your flower with an adorable embellishment!  Here I punched a tiny flower from our Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and adorned it with a Basic Pearl.
