Some people deserve a kudos – whether they just graduated from college, earned a much-needed job promotion or survived an entire weekend with their nephews, these people have certainly earned a gorgeous card with heartfelt congratulations. Woo hoo! Here’s today’s card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Having Fun with Epic Alphabet. I just love the big, bold letters in the Epic Alphabet photopolymer set. While there’s no need to color in the striped letters, it was fun to do so. I used my Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake Blendabilities to color in the letters – I alternated between the three shades of Calpyso Coral and the Crumb Cake shade. So fun, so easy. You’ll be the envy of your neighborhood when you’ve collected all of the Blendabilities (get them all starting tomorrow!)
- Color Combination. I love when good color combinations happen. I stumbled upon this one when I couldn’t decide whether to pair Calypso Coral with Crumb Cake or with Basic Black. I had all three colors pulled out with my Color Coach, and **voila!** I saw that they all three looked wonderful together. Why pick one when you can have two? If you like this color combination, feel free to save this image for future reference:
- Little Banners. I was finished with this card – some layers of card stock and some words. I had moved on to another card, but this one kept calling me back. “Brian, you seem to have forgotten something…” it would say from the corner of my desk. I ignored the pleas until it started mocking me (this card was very demanding, and I was taking it personally). Defiantly, I picked it back up and stared at it for a while. I thought it would be fun to add two little banners. I added one in the top left and one in the bottom right. As such, the sentiment is bracketed by two little banners just as you would read it. (banner, wow, you did it, banner).
