Paisley Petals - Stampin Up Greeting Cards for the Hand Purse

As promised yesterday, today's share is about the Stampin Up greeting cards that go with the hand purse that I featured yesterday.  These are miniture cards ranging in size from 3-1/2" by 2-1/2" to 4-1/2" by 3", which fit inside the hand purse.  All three cards are made with the Stampin Up Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper.

This card is made with one of the Paisley Petals designs.  As you can see, it's not the usual fold for a card.  When the card is closed, the two sides come together perfectly; neither overlapping the other.  Like sewing fabrics that require "matching", I tried to match up the DSP so the same flower is on both sides of the card and positioned close to the same.  This card was made with Stampin Up Bashful Blue, Whisper White, and Peach Parfait card stock.  One of the frames from the Four Frames Stamp Set (available April 1) was used and embellished with a flower and pearl.  The frame is attached to the card on the left side.  The sentiment is from the Stampin Up You're a Gem stamp set.

This is the inside of the card, which is decorated with "little things".

This card is made with another design of the Paisley Petals.  It is the same design as the card above, and it features the lovely Stampin Up Sale-a-bration Bliss stamp set. 

The inside of the card also features the Bliss stamp set.

This card is the smallest of the three.  I used the brayering technique, one of my favorite.  It features the same design of the Paisley Petals as the card above.  I modified the step card slightly so it would have the bird a little higher than the first step.  I was hoping that the bird appears to be close up but within the branches of the trees in the background.  Also, I added a little flower on the first step of the card. 

I hope you have enjoyed this post.

God's Blessings!
