Retro Fresh Paper Makes A Great Card

Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper Card

 

The right background paper can take a card from just okay to wow!

So, what do I look for in a designer series paper before I buy? SU! designer series papers all coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! colors and other products so all that is left to do is to pick my favorites from each catalog. I need to love the colors in the package and personally, I look for patterns that repeat across the entire page with a mix of small and bold patterns in each package.

The new designer series paper packages that have just been released all fit my requirements. If I had to pick my faves (so far!), they would be the Retro Fresh and Watercolor Wonder packages. 

 

For this card, I adhered 1" x 4"strips of Retro Fresh designer series paper to Baked Brown Sugar card stock. Since the paper is 12" x 12", whenever possible I cut into piece widths and lengths that can get the most mileage out of my papers like 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6. The card itself is Coastal Cabana card stock.

 

I punched four circles with the 1" circle punch from the same patterned papers and adhered them underneath the paper strips covering the middle with a band of card stock in the same colors and Baked Brown Sugar Ruffle Stretch Trim. The greeting is from the new stamp set, Says It All (Wood 133170 $16.95, Clear 133173 $12.95) stamped in Baked Brown Sugar ink.
