This is an easy fun fold to use to feature beautiful designer series paper. Today I'm featuring the retiring Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. I'm so sorry it's retiring - it is one of my all-time favorite DSPs! I love the variety of flower patterns, the colors and the beautiful gold foil pattern on some of the paper. And right now, it's only $6.00 for this beautiful specialty dsp that was $15.00.

This "Card in a Card" pattern is easy and fast to make.

The stamp (Ornate Style) I used to stamp the inside daisy is also retiring.  Aren't these flower images pretty?

This is a very cute Easter basket you can make that doesn't take much time. I also have a neat way to use the metallic mesh ribbon to make the bunny whiskers. The basket recipe is from Julie Davison, and the bunny is my invention.  Have fun with this cute project!
