And here is the 4X4 paper trick we were shown at OnStage. Carrie Cudney did a demo on this technique and it will help you use up your Designer paper and if you place an order on the Hostess code I will send you some 4X4 squares to try for your self!
This paper is Botanical Gardens from the Occasions catty. I have not used ANY of this pack of paper! Or the Matching stamps and Framelits!! Shame on me! Thank goodness the Stamps and Framelits will be in the new catalog, so I can show them some more love.
Anyway back to this card. Cut the 4X4 square at an angle. Then add your paper to your card base. Your paper will be framed by 1/4 inch and the gap between leaves you plenty of room for your sentiment and embellishments. I use Mint Macaron to stamp the Vase and cut out with the Framelit from Rose Wonder. I then stamped the flowers on Crushed Curry and punched out with the matching flower from the punch pack. Added with Glue dots and added some Rhinestones. Super simple!

Check out the Hostess only sets on pages 179-181 of the catalog. The only way to earn these stamps is to have a $150 or more order.
