Welcome to HODGEPODGE WEEK!  I have decided to try something a little different one week per month.  Rather than featuring a certain stamp set or bundle, I'm going to use a variety of products to show how well so many of Stampin' Up!'s products can be mixed and matched.  At this point the plan is to make the last full week of each month "hodgepodge week".

Today's card uses the Unbounded Love and Painted Lavender Bundles, but the real star of the card is the Meandering Meadows Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Do you ever struggle choosing a "side" when you go to use your DSP?  Sometimes both sides are so pretty that you just want to show them both off.

This super simple card does just that.  Meandering Meadows DSP is a collection of 6" x 6" beautiful landscape scenes and most have gorgeous watercolor designs on the reverse side. 

For this card I trimmed off 3/4" from the bottom of the DSP and then scored the 6" side at 2" from the left edge.  That 2" scored section was then just folded over to create a partial flap which shows off the beautiful opposite side of the paper!

The two die cuts on the 2" flap were made with a Perennial Lavender die and the sentiments were created with the Unbounded Love Bundle.  I love how several of the sentiments in this bundle are coordinated to be used together.

When you open the front flap, you can see the extension of the landscape scene.  A narrow piece of Basic White cardstock provides a place to sign your name and add a little hand-written note.

The Blackberry Bliss stem was stamped with a Perennial Lavender stamp.

What do you think?  Isn't this a simple, but beautiful card?

A list of the currently available products that I used are shown below.  The Night of Navy Ribbon is retired but use any ribbon you have.  There are so many colors in this DSP that the ribbon color choices are numerous.
