Urban Oasis Card Fest

Have you ever bought a package of Designer Series Paper because you like one or two pieces of paper? I have! Then you have to wonder what you are going to do with the rest of it. Well, what you do is step out of your comfort zone and make some cards!

So here is what we have....these two cards are the same, only different. They use the same piece of paper, but from a different "section" of the page. I also had to step outside of my comfort zone and use some of the soon to retire Kiwi Kiss cardstock. This card is also a 5 inche square card. It is a size I like, but seldom make.

So here is another card, and I even decorated the inside! Like I said earlier, I was trying to use up all the scraps too! This one is made into a birthday card, but there is still a little bit of room on the inside to even write a hand-written note.

Kiwi Kiss is not one of my favorite colors, so I had to change up the color of the card! I used some of my beloved Baja Breeze, and this is using pieces of the same paper used above, but this time parts without the green leaves. I added some Baja double stitched ribbon and some of the Gray Tafetta ribbon as well. The card in front has the medallion embossed in clear.

This is the last card I made using the same paper. I needed a card to send to a friend just to let her know I was thinking of her, and I thought this was a cute and quick card to make. I matted the scrap of paper on Pink Pirouette and then again on Basic Gray, wrapped some Pink Pirouette ribbon around it, and wah-lah!!
