Thinking "out of the box" with designer series paper - a technique from my Technique Thursday class.
It's fairly easy and has amazing results!
I've used one of the very cool stamp sets from the Summer Mini Catalogue, The Open Sea
as well as the great coordinating designer paper. The Bakers Twine is a nice addition to
Stampin' Up!'s embellishments - great for finishing up a masculine card.
