I adore the simplicity of a simple card that’s beautifully layered. Give me a great sentiment and some beautiful paper to play with, and I’m a happy man. I made this sweet-and-simple card with a variety of great Stampin’ Up! products:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Sentiment/Image Combo. The focal point of this card is the “A little expression of love” sentiment from Painter’s Palette that’s combined with a Sweet Sugarplum feather from Lovely Amazing You. Both are cropped with the Tags & Labels Framelits to create a beautifully tailored frame for the sentiment. While Painter’s Palette is new in the 2016 Annual Catalog, Lovely Amazing You is an online-only and while-supplies-last offering. The two work perfectly together – I love the sentiments in both.
- Blooms & Bliss for a Beautiful Backdrop. I wanted more than just a solid backdrop for this simple card, but I wanted to stick with a simple color palette. To create a little bit of texture without a bunch of work, I reached for my Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper – the soft, textured page pairs perfectly with the sweet sentiment and soft feather, don’t you think? Here’s a peek at the other pages in this sweet collection of papers:
- Color Combination. While I love the softness of Sweet Sugarplum, I’m not a purple-purple-purple person. Likewise, I enjoy my share of chocolate, but I don’t like death by chocolate desserts. Too much of a good thing is not a good thing. Anywho…to cut the sugar from the sugarplums a bit, I combined it with Basic Black and Whisper White. Still, the sugarplum shines through.
