Have you seen the new Designer Cuts Cards in the Occasions Mini Catalog? Now, I can honestly say that I'm usually not very interested in pre-made cards, even from Stampin' Up!, since I like to create them myself.
However, these new cards are different and so much better! They have two beautifully intricate, laser-cut designs that look fabulous enough on their own—just add a sentiment and you're ready to send the card.
The package comes with 8 cards: 4 each of the delicate heart and fancy border designs, plus 8 Blushing Bride envelopes.
But, what I really like is that the cards are like a blank, Very Vanilla, ready-to-stamp canvas! There are so many ways you could dress them up!
So, dress them up I did!

I was inspired by a Designer Cuts card I saw online, so I started experimenting with makeovers by copying that one. Didn't it turn out great?! I love the textures and frills—so feminine and pretty!
Card Details: I layered a piece of Blushing Bride card stock on the back of the laser-cut card front. Then, I added a 2" x 5-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla card stock after it was embossed with the Finial Press Impressions Folder. The Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon really ties the card together.
The sentiment is stamped with the Elegant Thank You individual stamp (this is a must-have for your collection!). I colored the stamp with Blushing Bride and Chocolate Chip markers for a two-tone look. It's punched with the Decorative Label Punch, then layered on more punches in Chocolate Chip (see how to layer punches here).
Finally, I added a touch of pearls—lovely!
Wow! What a gorgeous transition! I had so much fun with this makeover that I started experimenting with other ways to dress up these awesome Designer Cuts cards! Stay tuned for more Designer Cuts Extreme Makeovers coming soon…I think you'll be amazed at the results!
