It's an Elegant Soiree sort of day!

I feel very indulgent today.  I decided to reach for my Designer Series Papers and Elegant Soiree caught my eye.  These are a lovely set of papers in soft colours.  

I started off with a Basic Grey textured card in 6" by 6".  I then cut two panels from one of the sheets of paper.  I mounted them on Baja Breeze card showing the opposite patterns.  Then I chose one of the other patterns so cut a 3" by 3" square and again mounted it on Baja Breeze and off set this over the patterned panels.  

The final element is the sentiment.  I used Sincere Salutations Best Wishes and stamped it in Baja Breeze on Whisper White.  I then punched it out with 1 3/4" Oval Large.  I used this punch to punch out a second oval in Crumb Cake.  This oval was cut in half and attached to the sentiment to give a border.  I then attached this to a frame from the Four Frames set.  The frame was stamped in Baja Breeze on Baja Breeze card then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch

So this is my indulgent card which I've enjoyed making today with very little stamping involved.  

You can make this card using the above supplies which can be ordered through myself by contacting me on  I'd be happy to help with your crafting needs. 

Well the end of my day wasn't very elegant nor a soiree.  I was standing at the bottom of a ladder holding it whilst my hubby attempted to clean out our gutters raining dirt, moss etc over me!  Neither of us are very keen on heights so glad it's done and we are no longer growing bushes on the roof. 

So I'll sign off by wishing you a happy weekend and thanks for visiting. x

This is my favourite DSP this year, I'm so sad that it'll be retired sept! I really have to use some of mine up, I'm a bit of a paper hoarder!
Gorgeous card, think I may give it a go myself.
Thanks for your comment on my blog,
Kelly xx

This is beautiful, love the colours Aileen, I have never thought of papers as the main image, my first thought is an image if you see what I mean! I shall have to try this way of doing a card.
