Oh I love soft & subtle cards and when I made this one, I realized that I just don’t use my subtles enough…I need to dig them out WAY more often!

Here is a sweet little card that is perfect for using up those scraps of DSP that you end up with…you know the ones…not quite enough left to do a lot with but there is too much left to throw them away…

Anyhoo, this type of card showcases how I like to use my scraps up…and did I mention how much I LOVE these subtle colors!?


And the other thing I love about cards like this is that you can theme them for ANY occasion simply by switching out the sentiment – I like to make a batch of them without words, and then add the appropriate stamped sentiment as I pull each out to use it – this is a great way to have on hand cards that work for anything at anytime!

So back to details of this card…the colors I used are Smoky Slate, Pool Party and of course Whisper White – and that beautiful simple flower stamp is from the set Birthday Blooms

The patterned papers are from two packs – the polka dot piece is from Neutrals DSP Stack and the chevron pieces is from A Little Foxy – if you haven’t gotten that pack yet then it’s a MUST HAVE – oh my, there are some beautiful & adorable sheets of paper in there!


The sentiment I used on this card is from a BRAND NEW stamp set called Flourishing Phrases – that set is super versatile giving you 15 different sentiments PLUS gorgeous floral stamps too (and it even has matching dies to go with it for more versatility!) – check them out on pg 49 of the Catalog & below…
