Brace yourself…there’s something about my card that you don’t see too often. If you follow me, then you know how much I love Stampin’ Up!’s ribbons (I’m excited to share ribbon with you when I host product shares, and I love how the ribbons and other accessories perfectly coordinate with Stampin’ Up!’s colors and suites). What you’ve likely noticed, too, is that I don’t often put ribbon on my cards. Today’s a special day, though – there’s a big blue bow on my card – it was the perfect touch to my monochromatic card. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- The Right Triangle Bundle. The card panel between the card base and the sentiment panel consists of a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock and two stamped, cropped triangles from The Right Triangle Bundle. This treatment of the triangles was inspired by the Mint Macaron card on page 35 of the Annual Catalog. I love that the pinstriped triangle is an important design element on the card but that it isn’t the focal point. Here’s a look at the really great The Right Triangle Bundle, which is found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog:Good news! As a bonus (since I know you just added The Right Triangle Bundle to your shopping cart)…Tree Angle (another fun, geometrical play on words) is a Christmas stamp set designed to also coordinate with the Stitched Triangles Dies. The stamp set is from Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog. Here’s a look at this fun stamp set:
- A Grand Kid. I’m going to surprise you again…I don’t have grandchildren. Could you have ever guessed it? Still, I absolutely adore the A Grand Kid stamp set. There are some great sentiments in the set for grandmothers or grandfathers, but there are some that are also great for anyone. Here’s a look at the sentiments in this stamp set:While the outside features “So Smart, So, Fun, So SWEET and so WONDERFUL!,” the fun sentiment wraps up on the inside of the card with “We must be related!” How else would you wrap up such a wonderfully complimentary sentiment?! I had an extra triangle, so I added it to the inside of my card:
- Monochromatic Misty Moonlight. There’s a lot of gorgeous blue on this card – and each blue element plays with the Whisper White. This isn’t the first time I’ve made a monochromatic card with Misty Moonlight – while today’s card is festive and fun, the last card was sophisticated and elegant. Here’s a look at that card (you can click on the picture to see the original post for this card): Misty Moonlight is a gorgeous blue that’s darker than Pacific Point and lighter than Night of Navy, a perfect addition to our color collection with the 2020-2022 In Colors.
