Hello everybody! Today, I’ve got two cards to show you that each feature the Expressions In Ink Designer Series paper. When I first saw this paper in the new catalog, I thought it was pretty, but it wasn’t really in my favorite top ten or anything. BUT… when I got it and opened it, I was AMAZED! I can’t explain to you how gorgeous this paper is in person. It truly its breathtaking! I had to make a card that showcased two of my favorite patterns in the pack. I wanted the paper to really be the star of the card, so I kept it very simple. Here, I cut four 1 1/4″ X 4″ strips and put them on a Just Jade card base with Dimensionals. I embossed the sentiment from Create With Friends in Gold on Evening Evergreen.
For the next card, I did the same thing except this time, I used a Polished Pink card base and a Basic Black label (cut with the Scalloped Contour Dies.)
If you love this paper as much as I do, you’re going to want to check on the upcoming June Paper Pumpkin! It has the same elements that coordinate with the entire Expressions In Ink Suite.
