My first card today is using the new Free with Three set, “A Little Something”.
Keeping it simple and light, I made a birthday card using black onyx ink and some sequins. This is great because it can be made so quickly and yet look like a million bucks!
Throw some of those sequins in your envelope, and you will give your recipient a little surprise party
My next card is using the new Green Thumb Diva mini stamp set. I totally love how this sweet card came out!
I colored the diva in with copics, but then paper pieced her pants to match my accent card stock which I stitched down the sides using my sewing machine. This is a nice idea because you are just bring a little bit of the background accents into the foreground. I grounded that gingham paper by using it to set off my sentiment as well, which then brought the gingham in three times, which is what you want to strive for in good design. I also brought it into the front of my envelope I made.
I kept her colors as close to the patterned paper colors as possible. I shaded her in a light violet. Remember, shade has color!
I also finished off the back of my envelope I made with my Kreate-a-Lope envelope maker and glue. Notice the stitching detail I brought into the strip. Before you adhere the strip, just run it on the sewing machine. This now ties in with the card front!
Hope you enjoyed the inspiration today! Go check out the other designers!
