Early yesterday morning I worked on some cards. I thought it would be interesting how different the same card would look by using different colors and sentiments. I'm very pleased with the results.
I decided to use the 5 new In Colors that were introduced on July 1st. In Colors stay in our color collections for 2 years then will retire. Next year we will have an additional 5 In Colors and they will be around for 2 years also.
The 5 new In Colors are: (on pg 165 of the new catalog)
I used both card stock and classic ink in each color.
I used Whisper White Card stock for the card bases.
For the accent strip on each card, I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border paper punch. It is item #119275
Stamp Sets used:
Curly Cute, item #120510, clear mount (for the sentiments)
Printed Petals, item #120444, clear mount (for the large flower)
Each flower was hand cut out using paper snips (scissors).
Wouldn't these make a great gift if they were put in a box. Easy to make, and perfect for any occasion. There is a tutorial on my blog too for a card box that would be perfect for this set of cards. CLICK HERE to see the box tutorial.
These cards were quick, easy, and look great. Stampin' Up! products may be ordered 24/7 by CLICKING HERE.
