The Best Days of Our Lives

Hi!  It's Karen posting today.   There's just something special about the sweet patterned papers from Simple Stories, and I can't seem to get enough of them! 

For this card, I used three different patterns of paper from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 Paper Pad and machine stitched them together.  These papers can be mixed and matched SO beautifully, you will definitely want to pick up this set!  

To embellish my card, I hand dyed some of the sweet Chalk White Seam Binding from Classy Cards 'n Such to perfectly match my patterned papers.  I will be sharing a tutorial with you very soon to show you how easy it is to dye your own seam binding.  

I also attached a few of the Zva Creative Flowers in classic red, olive green and white.  These darling Paper Flowers come in several colors and have the long green wire stems that you can wrap to make the sweet little stems you see on my flowers.  They're just delightful, high-quality paper flowers, and once you order one color; you will surely want them ALL!  

I used a rub-on from my stash for the sentiment, and adhered it to a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die-cut. 

Making cute cards is quite simple when you have the adorable and versatile products offered at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Feel free to visit my blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to read more details about this card and to pick up a Coupon Code for a discount in the store.  I can't wait to see what YOU will create!
