Today  I’m inspired by…cards. I went to Papyrus to look for a card for a wedding we are going to next weekend. I could have spent hours in there! I went online to their website at and found several inspiring cards to share.

Birthday In Colorful Blocks

Birthday in Colorful Blocks Inspiration point: I love the color blocks and the use of the white letters. I could definitely use up some old letter stickers to make a card like this.

Balloons and Gifts

Balloons and Gifts Inspiration point: These patterns don’t seem to go together but the card is so cohesive when they are used in repetition of presents and balloons. What a great way to use scraps!

Red Blue Yellow Green Circles

Red Blue Yellow Green Circles Inspiration point: In real life the blue and red middles in the circles are glittery- it is so simple and pretty! Think of all of the color combinations that would look great with this pattern.

Button Flowers

Button Flowers Inspiration point: These felt and button flowers are the sweetest (and look easy to re-create)!

Elegant Damask

Elegant Damask Inspiration point: Yet another great way to use patterned paper scraps! I am picturing using the damask pattern like this for a wedding card…or plaid for a more masculine birthday card…

Two Wire Flowers with Sequins

Two Wire Flowers with Sequins Inspiration point: This card is so simple but elegant at the same time. I love these flowers as a card or an accent on a layout.

Heart of Gems

Heart of Gems Inspiration point: I know I have some random gems like this around- love the idea of using them to create one big shape.

Flowers with Patterns

Flowers with Patterns Inspiration point: I have a lot of paper packs from different companies that combine fun patterns with solids that would be great for a card like this. I could also use this same idea on  layout…perhaps flowers like this or leaves for fall or snowflakes for winter…and I could use punches…

Bouquet of Flowers

Bouquet of Flowers Inspiration point: You have to click on this link and zoom in to appreciate the amazingness (is that a word??) of these handmade flowers. They are made of layers of pink tulle or mesh with a gem and some beads for the center. The stems are made of wire and they are beautiful!!

Oh Papyrus…how I love thee…
