Back to Nature!

Back to Nature!

Hi there and welcome to the Simple Stories blog ! Nicole here today to share a collection of cards made using just a few sheets of patterned paper from the Happy Trails collection. I am pretty much in love with any floral paper that is easy to fussy cut. I know that makes some people cringe, but for me, a little effort and fancy scissor work you can create some amazing results. My inspiration for my project came from the Back to Nature paper in the Happy Trails collection.

I created two cards using the same supplies - the woodgrain paper from the Happy Trails collection, along with a lot of fussy cut florals from the floral paper and a stamped sentiment using stamps from the Heart collection.

I diecut a simple geometric frame from white cardstock and used that as a base to enclose my fussy cut flowers, adding in the stamped sentiment to finish off the circular design.

The second card I made using the same fussy cut flowers and stamped sentiment, this time creating clusters in each corner of the card using those pretty flowers.

It is really easy to make some simple cards with a little imagination and a few supplies!
