Easy “Love Blossoms” Greeting Card

“Love Blossoms” Designer Series Paper & Botanicals for You Stamp Set

You can make this easy Love Blossoms greeting card in just a few simple steps.  There are 4 each of 12 different designs in the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack which means you can create several looks from just one stack of paper.  (See other designs that use the Love Blossoms paper HERE and HERE.)

The “Just for You” saying is from the Botanicals for You stamp set from the current 2016 Sale-a-Bration promotion catalog.

Take a closer look at the Blushing Bride satin bow. The Blushing Bride ribbon is part of the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit. I think the bow is the embellishment that makes this card so stunning.  The card doesn’t use any fancy technique or over-the-top styling; it’s just paper, ribbon, one stamp, and Rose Red ink.  However, the result is really breathtakingly beautiful.

To make the gate-fold card, don’t panic!  Start with a regular piece of 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ card stock.  Instead of scoring the paper down the middle at 5-1/2″, just score each side along the 4-1/4″ side at 2-1/8″.  It’s that easy!  Cut each piece of Designer Series Paper 1-7/8″ x 5-1/4″.  Adhere the sentiment to the right fold of the card so that you can easily open both sides.  Be sure to tie the ribbon to the center piece so that the card will open. 😉

I’m usually heavy on the embellishments when I make a card, but it was a fun break to make an easy card that allows the paper and the ribbon to do all the work.
