Floral and Feminine Friendship Card

Floral and feminine, today’s friendship card will be sure to delight the recipient! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

floral and feminine friendship cardThis week, the amazing LeAnne has an awesome sketch for us. Since I was in the need for a feminine friendship card, I saw an opportunity to use the Darling Details dies to create a sweet, floral frame in pink. While I definitely went floral and feminine, the sky is the limit as to what can be designed with this versatile sketch.  I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

When I said today’s card was floral and feminine, I was not fibbing. This delightful designer paper is from the Delightfully Eclectic collection. In hindsight, I probably should not have combined the stripes and the delicate flowers, but I just could not help myself.  The patterns reminded me so much of the wallpaper in my cousin Shelly’s bedroom when we were growing up. Three walls were a delicate pink floral very similar to this paper, while the wall behind her bed was pink stripes.  And you know what else she had? WHITE carpeting! Yep, cousin Shelly did not live on a farm. No shoes were allowed in THAT bedroom!  While today’s floral and feminine friendship card was not designed for Shelly, I have to make another one just for her. I know she will get a kick out of it! As for the intended recipient, she loves pink and anything girly-girly. I know she will not mind the rather busy stripes and floral combo.

  1. Joanne James - The Crafty Owl

    This is so pretty in pink Ann – that pretty stamped flower and that DSP combo is indeed so feminine. Beautiful!

  2. So pretty, Ann. I love how feminine it is. The stripes and floral DSPs are a perfect combination

  3. Ann, that’s a really pretty frame. I don’t think I’ve seen a frame with the inside opening having all of the interest like this. Your paper selections really make this a beautiful card!
    Xoxo, Fran

  4. How pretty. The DSP is so lovely and the Big stamped flower is the perfect touch.

  5. Claire Broadwater

    Ann, I just love the stripes and floral prints together. The color combo is lovely! The sweet little bow and gems add such great detail!

  6. Beautiful card and such gorgeous paper

  7. Ann, your card is so lovely. I love the pinks and frills. That paper is some of my all time favorite!

  8. These papers are so pretty, I agree! This is just a perfect feminine creation, just so soft and flowery! Love it!

  9. I love the floral and stripes together! They give energy, along with all the other embellishments, and convey your heartfelt friendship :). I think the recipient will feel like she just got a big hug!

  10. I had this sheet of DSP out thinking I was going to use it yesterday but my project went in a different direction. Don’t you just love that pretty paper?! Love the floral and stripes combination. Your card is SO PRETTY!

    All things bright and beautiful – that’s this card – lovely!
