    Beautiful Card Ideas..

    Today, it's all about cards... It's so nice to take a break from larger projects and create mini works of art from our stash of scrap supplies.

    Prima flowers and papers are the perfect elements to make stunning cards and we wanted to share some examples that our talented Design Team has created....

    ...........................................................................................................................

    This adorable, whimsical card was created by Daniela Dobson. She cut out the journaling bracket from our So Cute Paper Collection and added a beautifully layered flower to bring out the colors from the papers. The added texture to the sentiment and little butterflies accent the card perfectly...

     Hi76888

    ..................................................................................................................

    Anabelle O'Malley created this richly colored card using papers from our Reflections Collection. The journaling notecard adds an elegant touch and it makes the perfect focal point for this card. The flowers finish it off perfectly, tying in the warm color scheme.

    Nsd1 

    .....................................................................................................................

    Nic Howard reused our gorgeous packaging and created a stunning window card! Our translucent packaging makes the perfect back drop for this beautiful card.  Notice all the details added by using a mix of Prima flowers, felt and lace...

    ClearPkgingcardNicHfront 

    ..................................................................................................................

    Cari Fennell created this vintage style card using Prima stamps and a beautiful mix of painted flowers. Custom color our white flowers to achieve your desired color pallette and add a mix of centers to finish off the look...

    Shimmerzcard1 

    ..............................................................................................................

    We hope you enjoyed our card segment today and inspired you to create little some masterpieces of your own!
