Simple Card using Ornate Garden Designer Paper & Ornate Layers Dies

I love using Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper for my projects for several reasons. 

  • The designs are beautiful and perfect for many paper crafting projects.
  • The color combinations are defined which makes project planning easy.
  • Stampin’ Up! colors are available ink pads (& refills), cardstock and some of the colors are available ribbons and embellishments which gives you so many options for your projects.


For today’s card I’m using the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Paper and the Ornate Layers Dies available in the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release (click here to see video showing products in the suite)
