Made with Love

I always gravitate towards crisp clean cards, especially ones with white backgrounds.  This card is simple yet there are a lot of little extras to make it a “wow” card.  Notice the faux stitching along the side of the card.  This was done with the Needlepoint Border embossing folder.  My color pallet was taken directly from the Gingham Garden DSP.  Don’t forget, now through July 31st, buy three packs of DSP and get one FREE.

My Favorite Card Layout

This is one of my favorite card layouts.  I used this same layout on the card I posted yesterday “Frame it  with Washi Tape”.  It’s 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 5 1/2″, so the front of the card is just a half flap. I used the Gingham wheel for the edge border and the banner.

Frame it with Washi Tape

 
Lately, I’ve been on a roll with the Washi Tape and Candy Dots. Here’s another card that uses both.  I used the Washi Tape to frame the edge and focal point of the card and I added a bit of bling with the Candy Dot in the center of the flower.
