I warned you! When the Occasions Catalog launched in January, I told you I was absolutely in love with one of the sentiments from Perfect Pennants – it’s still my favorite thing in the Occasions Catalog (not only do I love the sentiment behind the words, but I love the style of the written words). I promised you that you’d see more of this sentiment, and I always make good on my promises. 🙂 Here’s a new card with this incredible sentiment:
- Color Inspiration. Over on my Facebook Page, I have been sharing color inspirations from clothing and home decor. If I find a color combination I like, I share it. This color combination of Island Indigo and Cajun Craze was inspired by a gorgeous Crate & Barrel pillow. The moment I saw this pillow, I knew I’d be recreating this color combination in a project. Love it! Today is the day!
- Matching Patterns. While the background of this middle section is bold and modern, the sentiment has a rough texture. It’s a little sketched, a little distressed, a little smooth. As I thumbed through the 6 Petite Petals images, this distressed and sketched flower seemed to be the best complement to the sentiment.
- Perfectly Aligned Layers. Yesterday I shared my tips for the perfect alignment of layers on a card. Did you see my video (if not, check it out here). With all the layers on this card, I knew I needed to get them right – a little pressure after I shared my tips. I think I passed the test on this card. Phew!
