Simple Handmade Card Designs

Simple handmade card designs don’t often come easy to me!

What I have realized is that simple handmade card designs often start for me with Stampin’ Up! designer series papers! Today’s project features the gorgeous Magnolia Lane paper and the coordinating Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.

Simple handmade card designs often start for me with Stampin' Up! designer series papers. Today's project features the gorgeous Magnolia Lane paper and stamp set.

This paper is so beautiful that the card design just had to be simple, so I didn’t cover up the paper.

The sentiment and stamped floral image come from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and I’ve used the Stitched Shapes Dies and Layering Ovals Dies. These dies are must-have products, in my opinion! I use them all the time!!!

Isn’t this ribbon just gorgeous!?

I know I’m not the only one that loves this ribbon as it is one of the items in the new catalog that went on backorder on day one that the catalog went live. Crazy right?
