The Simply Perfect Collection – Countless Combinations and Customizations

Hello crafty friends! It’s Jean here sharing three cards created with the Simply Perfect Collection. This versatile collection, which includes products to create backgrounds, die-cut and glimmer-foiled sentiments, and focal images, can be used to craft for any number of occasions. The collection’s products work together beautifully for countless variations.

Floral Hello Cards

The first two cards use the Florets Embossing Folder for the background, along with a “Hello” sentiment, from the Mix & Match Sentiments set, and focal images, created with the Layered Blooms set. I created two versions of similar design to highlight how easy it is to change the look.

For the first card, the Layered Blooms and the Mix & Match Sentiments “Hello” were die-cut from cardstock colored with Distress Inks for a soft look.

For the final card, I created a graduation card customized with the school colors on the background, created with the Color Block Slices set, and the Alphabet die set. The Color Block Slices shape reminds me of a school pennant.

  • Die-cut background pieces with Color Block Slices die from navy, Brush Gold, and gray cardstock. Tape together on back and trim to A2-size.
  • Cut “Congrats” from white cardstock (twice) with die in the Mix & Match Sentiments Glue together.
  • Cut “GRAD” from navy cardstock (twice) with letters in the Alphabet die set. Glue together.
  • Adhere sentiment elements to the card base.

    These floral cards are stunning. Jean has really matched the die cuts to the embossed background. Interesting how two cards similar look so different. But the Grad card, OMG is so clever! She is right, looks like a pennant. That die looks like a real winner!
