The Bloom Where You're Planted 12 x 12 designer series paper by Stampin' Up! is fun to use with it's depictions of beautiful plants. This simple card shows off the patterned paper rather than focusing on a stamped image. I have several other cards created using the gorgeous Bloom Where You're Planted paper that you can find HERE and HERE. Scroll down for complete measurements and directions.
Make it yourself:
I used the Cinnamon Cider cardstock to layer the Bloom Where You're Planted 12 x12 designer series paper and the Evening Evergreen for the card background. The Stitched Greenery die creates amazing backgrounds with beautiful, stitched leaves scattered throughout. It is easy to miss in Stampin' Up!'s 2021 annual catalogue but it is so versatile and creates gorgeous backgounds. I love it!
The Tailor Made Tags are die cut using another piece of the Bloom Where You're Planted 12 x12 designer series paper and the brick pattern coordinates with the Cinnamon Cider layer.
To recreate this design using any patterned paper you own, pick out 2 of the predominant colours from the paper first. Stampin' Up! designer series paper has coordinating cardstock colours for every colour you see. This makes creating cards so easy! The top design tip for great cards is to always have your main colour or two repeat.
