Bloom Where You’re Planted Card using Designer Series Paper. I am really enjoying finding lots of ways to use the Discounted Designer Series Paper to make fun cards, and today is no exception. In fact, much like with the In The Wild paper, no sooner had I used the Bloom Where You’re Planted paper, than I had to order more, and the Bundle. OK, I admit it, I bought the whole Suite! But that is for another time.
My first card uses one of the images that includes both the plant and the pot. Of course I fussy cut this out, because I LOVE to fussy cut and find it really relaxing, I know I may be in a minority there, but practise really does make it easier. So all I then did was layer up my mats, catching the ends of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Ribbon between the Garden Green and Cinnamon Cider mats. Stamping the sentiment from Dragonfly Garden in Cinnamon Cider and then punching it out with the Oval Punch.
I added lots of Dimensionals to the back of the fussy cut piece and added it so that it sat over the ribbon, which helped to ground it. The finishing touch was to add a few Champagne Rhinestones and a piece of Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the inside of the card.
My second card uses separate pots and greenery, but the basic idea is the same, except this time I selected Gray Granite and Evening Evergreen for the mats. For this card, I chose to wrap the Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave ribbon around all of the mats. I stuck the middle pot straight onto the patterned paper layer and then added the pots to each side with Dimensionals.
I didn’t think that this card needed anymore on the outside, and that adding anything would make the card look too cluttered. What do you think? Could I have added some gems? Possibly, but a sentiment I think would have been a step too far. Do you agree? I would love to hear from you, so why not leave a comment at the bottom of this page, or on my YouTube Video (link below)
