Today in the blogging world, I have a busy day! This is the first of three posts for me! Three post Thursday!
I’ll start off with a card for Create with Connie and Mary.
We have a new set of challenges for the month of June since the new Stampin Up catalog just came out!!! All the pictures are from the new catalog and will be what we create from. Here is this weeks inspirational picture –
I had to pull out my book to examine this picture a little more closely.
It appeared to be a gift card holder. So that is what I created –
I went with a simple single, new favorite color, Tranquil Tide. It paired nicely with the Flourish Thinlits and Flourishing Phrases stamp set.
I initially placed the set of scrolling vines down and adhered that whole panel to the card front. After I tied the gold ribbon on the side, I added another set of scrolling vines on top of the other ones and the ribbon. The card is still removable without undoing the ribbon. Clever, really.
It’s very pretty and serene. It’d be great to receive a note like this with a gift card in it!
The other Design Team members created some great cards too. Some used the sketch. Some used the colors. Check them out too!
You can create a card too and link it up on our Facebook page. We’d love for you to join us!
