Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper

I have had a few say that they aren't sure what they are going to do with the new Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper - Well I adore it and find it so inspiring! Here is a couple of very quick easy cards that I think are very funky that I made yesterday.

I actually made this one first - very fast. It is a small note card and I love how simple and yet effective it is. I have wanted to use this sentiment for a while now - but I knew it needed a nice funky background to go with the geometric triangles.  Last minute I added the flowers to soften it from the Bloomin' Hearts Die set. I think they did their job. But then I had another idea - what if I make the same card and slightly change it up for something fun. The card I made yesterday made me think of this idea.


So here is my next card - exactly the same pattern paper as well, however I have done a little twist and created a little opening. I used the open here stamp set from the All About Sugar Stamp set. I decorated the edges with the Bloomin' Hearts again - they are so sweet. I then adhered the Very Vanilla Bakers twine to the front. I am hoping that the Open here Stamp will give it away that they have to undo th bow.

Once they do open the bow - here is the inside -

I adhered the square that I cut out of the first one on the back of the opening section as it looked a little strange with the different pattern on the back.

I hope that you enjoyed my Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper note card.
