There isn’t anything I don’t love about this card, the colors, the design, the birds- yes everything. Sadly I can’t say I was the one who designed/made it. Happily it did arrive in the mail from my friend Linda Bauwin as a thank you for her Christmas gift.
Want to see the gift that deserved such a great card? It comes with a story.
After years of saving pallet boards to make this accent wall in our bedroom we found that we OVER estimated how much we would need. (Not to toot my own horn but didn’t this turn out awesome!!)
Every now and again I have a good idea on how to use “left overs”. Marc and Sidney don’t always appreciate being drafted into these moments of brilliance but are generally good sports. They cut up and created over 25 of these boards and I painted them- with the help of a stencil of course. Most of our friends and family got the the OH home boards for Christmas but a few wine loving special friends got the design on the right. Below is the set I kept for myself.
Now you might be saying DANA why are you showing us someone else’s card and talking about Christmas gifts?! It’s simple, use what you have! Remember that Stampin’ Up Designer Series paper has two sides, one very patterned and one not so much. In this case it might have been easy to look at the birds and branches bundle and say… oh well that’s only for spring or the snowflake splendor paper and say well that is only for Christmas.
I say break open those precious packs of designer series paper, stamp images outside the box and create beautiful cards- you’ll be happy you did.Product List

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.
We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!
The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!
