Todays feature is Nature’s Poem with Pop of Petals. Nature’s Poem designer series paper is one of the selections available in the Buy 3, Get 1 Free designer series paper sale this month. I paired this paper with the Pop of Petals bundle which includes the Pop of Petals stamp set bundled with the Four-Petal flower punch for a 10% savings. I recently featured the Pop of Petals bundle on this post with a Pop of Petals tip video on how to best line up the flower and the punch.
In the creation of these cards, I wanted to make several points.
- We all have designer series paper that we love – but then we sit and look at it and don’t use it. Stop it! Today’s samples use designer series paper that is cut into 3″ x 4″. When you cut to this size, it works well with the 12″ x 12″ sheets – no waste! You get 9 pieces to use! Remember – Love it and Use it!
- So many times we don’t think about stamping on designer series paper. I give you permission to stamp on it! Why not?

I love this card! Yes, the Nature’s Poem designer series paper is 3″ x 4″ but I added a 1″ x 4″ strip of a contrasting Nature’s Poem designer series paper to the bottom. Yes, it is acceptable to use 2 patterned papers on the same card. . . I give you permission to do that too!
The background in the 1 1/2″ circle is a leaf image from the Pop of Petals stamp set. The greeting comes from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. What do you think of the Tranquil Tide ruffled ribbon across the card? Even though the ribbon is ruffled, the card still has a masculine feel to it.
