There’s a sweet, simple sketch challenge this week at CAS(E) This Sketch that inspired me to make a card that I’ve been thinking about for a while. My simple card combines the Needle & Thread Bundle with the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (that I picked up in November). It’s about time, right?! Here’s my notecard-sized card:
- Needle & Thread. My sweet and simple card is built with simple layers of cardstock and Designer Series Paper. Three products from the Needlepoint Nook Suite of products are also showcased on this sweet, simple card. “People like you make the world a better place” – stamped with the Needle & Thread stamp set – is such a great sentiment for almost any occasion (thank you, celebrate you, birthday). Two of the dies from the coordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies give great texture to this card. Here’s a look at the Needle & Thread Bundle: The little strip of Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper informs the colors I used on my card base and gives my card a sweet, stitched, colorful pattern. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper:
- Texture. I want to give you a closer look at the focal panel of my card so you can see both stitching elements that add great texture to this sweet card:After I stamped the sentiment with Highland Heather ink, I centered the stitched die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies over top and ran it through the Big Shot Surprise! It didn’t crop out the shape – only added the stitching. It lined up perfectly with the Pretty Label Punch. Oh, the options! The large, stitched die that spreads across this panel is also created with a die from this set of dies. Such a lovely element!
- Coordinated Envelope. I love to decorate the flap of my envelope with a small panel of Designer Series Paper that coordinates with my card. Since there’s just a touch of this floral paper on my card front, it’s even more exciting to offer a large panel of it on the envelope. Don’t you think it gives the recipient a fun peek at what’s inside?
