One Card Wonder Wednesday, January 28, 2020 - Painted Poppy Birthday Card


Welcome to One Card Wonder Wednesday January 28, 2020!

I have fallen in love with these Poppies.  I have always loved Poppies and I am thrilled that 
Stampin' UP!® has created this suite of products.  It has made it easy for me to make beautiful cards...almost effortlessly.  The Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper is so gorgeous.  It reminds me of Poppy fields from when I lived in Germany.  Simply gorgeous.

Take a peek:

Which sheet is your favorite?  I love them all, LOL!  It makes it so hard to choose when you are creating a card.  I wanted to create a simple birthday day card that is centered around both the stamp set and the designer series paper.  Here is what I designed:

It's super simple, yet elegant. All of the layers are simple cutes so there isn't much guessing.  The real beauty of it, you can make many different cards with this layout using any Designer Series Paper you want!  So make sure you bookmark this post and come back to it when you are stumped for a card layout.  

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
