Can you believe we are already two weeks into September. I can’t. And I am seriously having fall fever. I want the leaves to change colors. I want the temperature to cool down. but alas, I am in the panhandle of Florida where the high temperature today was 95°. So, no fall fun here. LOL.
And because it doesn’t feel like fall, at least for today, I decided to use the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper to create two cards. Yes, two cards, for my video.
I wanted to use the designer series paper for something other than holiday cards. So I chose a sheet of the 6in. x 6in. paper that spoke to me as being both celebratory and sympathetic. And that is why I chose to make two cards. I know that sounds strange, but just look at the cards. The birthday card on the left looks happy. The sympathy card on the right conveys sympathy.
This set of Designer Series Paper is phenomenal and so versatile. And talk about easy to use. These photographic images make it simple to create a stunning card with little effort.
