Simply Perfect Collection – Springtime Card Inspiration with Annie Williams

Hi there, this is Annie Williams and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share a couple of projects using the new Simply Perfect Collection.  The effortless backgrounds, beautiful florals, and versatile sentiments inspired me to create three bright and cheery springtime cards for a variety of occasions.

Color Blocked Hello Card

The Color Block Slices Die Set is perfect for making easy and beautiful backgrounds for any type of card. I used it to cut tons of teal and blue cardstock scraps for a crisp and clean hello card.

  • Trim a piece of scrap paper or lightweight cardstock to 4.” x 5.25” and cover it completely with tape runner or double-sided adhesive.
  • Die cut white, teal, and blue cardstock with the Color Block Slices Dies.
  • Starting with the white die-cut at the top and ending with the darkest blue at the bottom, adhere the color block slices to the scrap paper so that they cover the entire panel.
  • Trim off any overhanging cardstock with scissors or a paper trimmer.

Embossed Sending Hugs Card

The Simply Perfect Florets Embossing Folder creates a beautiful modern floral background that is perfect for spring.  Coordinating perfectly with the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms Die Set, I used it as a subtle backdrop for the brightly colored flowers on this fun thank you card.

Floral Happy Birthday Card

With so many different flower options in the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms Die Set, I had to make another card featuring some beautiful arrangements. Using the same bright color scheme, my final card is a fun birthday card with a custom sentiment.

  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to 5.25” x 4”.
  • Apply Gold Hot Foil to the center of the panel using the frame from the Geometric Floral Foil Plate Set and the Glimmer Hot Foil Machine.
  • Blend Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink up from the bottom with a blending brush to cover about two-thirds of the panel, leaving some white at the top.
