After a long and wonderful weekend at my Mom’s house in Charleston, SC, I was traveling back to Atlanta all day today. Because my time is so limited, I am sharing a sweet and simple card I made for a workshop last week. This card features one of the most popular stamp-and-punch combinations with my customers, Mixed Bunch and Blossom punch.
This gorgeous set has an amazing assortment of flowers and a delicate medallion. Three of the images coordinate perfectly with the Blossom punch for a perfectly cut-out image every time.
Tips, tricks and reminders:
- I’m afraid to define “temporary”. 🙂 I’ve already divulged my addiction to this color and have featured several Baja Breeze projects over the past two weeks. I realize it might not be everyone’s favorite color. After today, I vow to you that Baja Breeze will be on a temporary hiatus from my site.
- Don’t recreate the wheel. This card uses the same, basic layout as the card I made for Brooke’s birthday celebration last week (remember?) I wanted to use this large, delicate shape, so why not let it stand out in a format that’s already familiar?
- Turn it on its side. Remember that there are several ways to score and cut a sheet of card stock so that it still fits into the medium-sized envelope. This card opens sideways – always fun to watch someone try to open this from the bottom. 🙂
- Add texture. The seam binding ribbon (if you haven’t already worked with it) has a wonderful texture that really stands out on any project. Give it a try!
