One of my favorite sets of papers right now as we enter the fall season here in North America is Blackberry Beauty which debuted early August.
And THIS particular sheet from the 12×12 designer paper pack can be easily cut to make six 4″ x 5-1/4″ card front layers which is what I did in the cards I’m featuring today.
I didn’t want to use the warm purplish hues of either Blackberry Bliss or Rich Razzleberry (two colors that are featured in the designer paper pack) in my card, so I started searching. And I was really excited when I put this sheet next to the color, Pool Party. It’s even better in person and looks almost mesmerizing especially with the reflective sparkles of gold from the paper and gems AND the shimmer from the ribbons.
If you’d like to recreate this card (or make a set of 12 like I did!), use the measurements and follow the directions below. You can even print off a 1-page PDF tutorial.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Early Espresso Cardstock: 4-1/4” x 11” scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”
- Pool Party Cardstock: 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8” & 3/4” x 4”
- Burmuda Bay Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4” & 4-1/8” x 5-3/8”
- Blackberry Beauty Designer Paper: 4” x 5-1/4” & 3/4” x 4”
- Pool Party Sheer Ribbon: 4-1/2”
- 3/8” Gold Shimmer Ribbon: 4”
- Punch Pool Party Cardstock strip and stamp sentiment towards the right. Angle cut ends of ribbons. Attach cardstock strip to ribbons so ribbons angle down to the right a bit. Stamp speckle image a few times onto designer paper layer. Add sentiment banner with Dimensionals and trim left edge of strip/ribbons to be flush with designer paper edge.
- Add all of this to the larger Bermuda Bay layer & then add to card front. Add a large and small Blue Gem.
- Stamp the inside sentiment onto the Pool Party layer. Layer the designer paper strip onto the bottom of the Pool Party layer then onto the smaller Bermuda Bay layer. Add this onto the inside of the card.
Again, I’m just totally amazed at how the Pool Party blue color vibrates next to the warm light purplish-brown tones of the paper.
I loved this design so much that I made 12 of these cards which you can get from the two sheets in a full pack. When the sheets are cut up, you will have four each of three separate floral scenes. In the photo below you can see what I did with the sentiment strip for each of the three separate scenes.
Thanks for stopping by to see what I had to share today. I hope I inspired your creativity.
