Trendy Hello Card Artisan Wow

 Welcome back to Artisan Wednesday WOW! We are moving on to our March box of Stampin' UP products from the 2014 Occasions Catalog! This box was full of the Watercolor Wonder Product Suite and more! We hope you stay with our Artisan Design Team Blog Hop over the next few months to inspire your creative juices!
You just came from Cathy Caines and next is Connie Collins, but before you come check out my very trendy card.

If you look at cards today say on Pinterest or other websites, you will see some trends starting to take place. My card today has a few of those trends in them. The angled layer of DSP. The flag with title or sentiment. The use of gold elements. The 3 dimensional flower.  All of these put together makes one great looking card.  ;)
Some of my favorite things on this card: 
The use of the Fresh Print Designer Series Paper. I used three patterns here.
The Gold Foil Sheet with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies leaf stem.
The Spiral Flower Originals Die in Strawberry Slush and adding a Fringe Scissor center in Daffodil Delight.
The Simply Celebrate stamp set that I used just the HELLO.
That yummy Gold Baker's Twine - Get some! Love it!
The staple. YES the staple. It is embossed in Gold Embossing Powder!!!!!
To do it, you add the staple to a scrap piece of paper. Then with the Gold Metallic Ink pad or Versamark pad ink up the staple. Add Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with Heat Tool. Now open the staple ends and remove from piece of scrap. I pre-stapled one to my flag piece and removed it. Now replace it with the Gold Embossed staple bending the ends back. Neato!

If you love this Fresh Print Designer Series Paper stack, check back on this Thursday!
