Fun Fold Card using Best Dressed Designer Paper & Stitched So Sweetly Dies

If you’ve been following my blog or YouTube channel you have noticed I love using Designer Paper for my projects… especially beautiful floral prints!!!

The Bested Dressed Designer Series Paper in the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog has beautiful floral designs that are perfect for all your projects!

The papers are so beautiful you don’t want to cover them… let them be the focal point of your project!


Today’s card is one I made for a Leadership swap in January.

I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to add a decorative layer to the card.

For this card I used one 4″ x 5-1/4″ Melon Mambo cardstock to create all the Melon Mambo layers including the embellishments for the inside & outside of the card.
