Before I share this week’s card for The Card Concept, I want to thank Geri Greening for selecting my card as a winner last week. I’m so happy that Geri has awesome taste in cards. Ha! It’s always nice to be recognized. To see the winning card, click here.
- Clean and Simple. The Card Concept asks us to define the style of the card we are submitting. While my card includes a little bit of layering, I would classify it as Clean and Simple. Two stamps with two inks – and done. I added a super-thin border of Pear Pizzazz around the front, Whisper White panel. It adds a little pop without taking away from the image on the front of the card.
- Christmas Bliss Photopolymer. While the Holiday Catalog is still a month away (customers can order from it starting on August 28), there are some great, net Christmas sets that can be ordered now: Christmas Bliss Photopolymer and Beauty of the Season. If you’re itching to get a start on your Christmas cards, one (or both) of these sets might be perfect for you.
- Notecards. Whisper White cardstock isn’t thick enough to be the base of a card (in my opinion). Incidentally, everything on this blog is my opinion – except for that part about how Geri Greening has super-wonderful taste in cards. That’s not an opinion, that’s a fact. Stampin’ Up!’s Notecards (found on page 194 of the Annual Catalog) are thicker and perfect to serve as a card base. Cut, scored, ready-to-go – notecards are a great way to go.
