Gift Wrap?




Another way to use this fabulous designer series paper from the HUES OF HAPPINESS suite collection.  I covered this plain box to gift a friend from out of town ~ Phyllis ~ visiting today.  So happy to see her ~ friendship is the best part of Stampin' Up!

Happiness Abounds

Hues of Happiness designer series paper (page 108 AC) has so many advantages ~ it is beautiful, colorful and four of the dies in the bundle fit the flowers on the paper (preventing fussy cutting!).  The card above uses DSP measuring 2" x 4".  On the card below the flower is die cut from the paper.
