Papillion Potpourri #3 in the Series

Share This!

Picking a pack of Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up is the best way to start a fabulous card.  The colors are expertly chosen for you, all you have to do is choose the specific patterns you want to use.  I would say that’s the hardest part! 

This card (thanks to Mojo Monday for the terrific sketch!) let me use quite a few patterns for a fun, colorful card that was so fun to make!

I started with a 4-1/2 x 11" sheet of cardstock and folded it in half to make my base.

The banners are 3/4" wide, except for the center banner.  That one is 1" wide.  You’ll see how and why that happened in the video that will be posted to StampNation later today!

The larger piece of DSP is 4 x 4-3/4 and the Lucky Limeade banner is 1-3/4 x 5.
