Susie Wood created this sweet and simple card with a fun opening. It's a fantastic layout that can be used with ANY of your favorite Designer Series Papers!
Background Basics—Susie started with a 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Night of Navy cardstock that she scored at the 2-1/8" and 4-1/4" marks to make a Z-Fold card base. She embossed a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Calypso Coral with the polka dots texture of the Checks & Dots Mini Embossing Folders Pack, then adhered it onto the front card panel.
Next, she layered a 2" x 4" piece of Sweet Symmetry DSP onto a 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Night of Navy, then again onto a 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Bumblebee cardstock. All layers are mounted onto the card front.
Terrific Tag—Susie made a tag with a 1" strip of Basic White using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. She stamped an In Symmetry sentiment on it in Night of Navy ink and popped it up onto the card front. Next, she stamped the In Symmetry flower in Bumblebee ink onto Basic White, cut it out and popped it up next to the tag. It's adorned with a Genial Gem. She finished by creating a couple of Night of Navy leaves with the Symmetrical Stems Border Punch and tucking them under the flower with some Glue Dots. Lovely!

Sweet Symmetry Thanks So Much Card
Here's another pretty & simple card layout that can be duplicated with any DSP and stamp set! It's created by Sarah Simon.
Background Basics—Sarah started by layering a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" square of Sweet Symmetry DSP onto a 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" Night of Navy mat. Next, she adhered that to a 3-1/4" x 4-3/8" piece of Basic White and stamped an In Symmetry sentiment along the bottom in Night of Navy ink. She also stamped some leaves in Just Jade. That layer is mounted onto a 3-1/2" x 4-5/8" piece of Just Jade, then adhered to a Night of Navy card base.
Fabulous Flower—Sarah finished by Stamping the In Symmetry flower in Flirty Flamingo ink onto Basic White, coloring it in with a Bumblebee Stampin' Write Marker and hand-cutting it out. She popped it up with Dimensionals. and added a Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone. So pretty!

Sweet Symmetry You're Amazing Card
This card created by Cathy Miller is a bit stepped up compared to the other cards, but still a fun layout to showcase the pretty papers!
Background Basics—Cathy began by running a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Just Jade cardstock through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the new Stitched Greenery Die for a beautiful faux-stitched pattern. It's layered onto a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, then mounted onto a Night of Navy card base.
DSP Tags—Cathy used the Tailor Made Tags Dies to die-cut a couple of patterns of Sweet Symmetry DSP to mount onto the card front.
Sweet Sentiment—Cathy used the same Tailor Made Tags Dies to make a Basic White sentiment layer, stamped with the Create With Friends word in Night of Navy. It's popped up with Dimensionals over the other tags. She also stamped the first word of the phrase in VersaMark ink onto a 1-1/2" x 1/2" strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, embossing it with White Embossing Powder and adhering it to the top of the tag.
Finishing Touches—Cathy finished by adding a Flirty Flaming Gold Metallic Ribbon Bow with a Glue Dot and adding some Champagne Rhinestones floating around the tags. So fun!
