Embrace the Trio

Stampin up punched posies island oasis designer series paper

Do I dare play favorites?  I adore the charming polka dot and floral patterns in the Island Oasis Designer Paper Series collection (Summer Mini Catalog).  However, my absolute favorite from Island Oasis DP is the pattern I used for today's card–yep, both sides rock.

  • Stampin up punched posies hostess rewards This card layout is a fabulous way to give your scraps another chance at strutting their stuff.  Each is 1" wide x 2" (however, the length gets tucked below the horizontal panel so don't sweat precision).
  • A trio of Punched Posies (Stampin' Up! Hostess level 2) are cropped with a Scallop Circle Punch.  A series of three coordinating objects pull a card together in a flash.
  • It's the little things.  A rounded corner at the bottom right keeps the card simple but adds a luxurious touch.
  • Dress up a card interior with coordinating designer series paper.
