Today I have a gorgeous Designer Series Paper to share with you that has some beautiful prints that look like photographs of flowers. I’m sharing two simple greeting cards using Petal Promenade DSP.

Talk about easy cardmaking, all you have to do is add a greeting!  My last post was more masculine cards, today it is definitely for the females in your life.  You can add any greetings with these papers, but I used the Beautiful Promenade stamp set that coordinates with the papers.

These card design ideas can be tailored for just about any occasion from birthday cards, thank you cards, thinking of you, get well cards, and many more! Today’s quick cards are just another example that simple greeting cards are beautiful!

I used the Stamparatus on the inside to make the diamond pattern.  Boy did that ever make it simple!

Subtle Embossing Folder

Once again I used the Subtle Embossing Folder.  It makes the cardstock look like “textured cardstock!”  This is my new GO TO embossing folder!
