Shades of Happy

I’ve been prepping all week for a Card Buffet this weekend. I always look to challenges to spark my creativity when creating the projects for the event.

This time I ran across Hand Stamped Sentiments for some inspirational colors –

I had an idea for a feminine type card, but I needed color direction. These colors were PERFECT!

I was interested in using the Celebrations Duo twice to show off how cool it is. And, cost-effective too! So I came up with this –

I love it!!!! It’s a very similar card to this one.

I spritzed each panel with half water and half alcohol prior to embossing to soften the paper. This is a rather deep impressions folder and it can crease or dimple the card stock if you don’t.

The simple, minimal stamped sentiment goes well with the repeated HAPPY. And the Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine is THE finishing touch this card needed!

I think this will be a popular card this weekend. What do you think?
