Today’s project includes YET ANOTHER stamp set that I’ve passed over many times when flipping through my catalog over the past several months. I’ve never really had an interest in Greeting Cars Kids, so I challenged myself to use it to make a card. Now I don’t know how I could have lived without it. The stamp set includes adorable sketches of little boys and girls – reminiscent of old-timey Valentine’s Day cards – featuring several holidays. I can’t wait to create Halloween and Valentine’s Day cards with this set.
I designed this card, water coloring the image with the same colors (as close as I could get them) as presented in the current catalog. I also decided to use Baja Breeze as the base of the card to create a soft, wintery feel. Here’s my card:
After I sat with this card, I felt it was missing something. Didn’t want to add a greeting (not sure why I was so opposed), so I looked around my stash of supplies and thought the card could use a big, soft white ribbon. Here’s my “revised” card:
