As I was working on cards for this month, I decided to grab my new Reason to Smile stamp set and start playing around again. I was inspired by how the edgelits were used in the latest catalog and some ribbon I had on my shelf and found this new-to-me color combination: Early Espresso, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, and River Rock. LOVE!
I love how this card looks in real life and so I decided to use it, not only for my class on Friday, but this will be one of the cards in this month’s Cards to Go program.
I’ll admit, this is my first time breaking out my scalloped edgelits. However, I love the subtle lacy look they give the bottom of this card. I also, started out without the extra layer of Whisper White (with the 3 flower images) and had a single flower image on the White cardstock below. But it just needed something and after playing around with a scrap piece of paper, I thought the sponged edge gave the card an interesting look.
I wanted to leave you with one last tip about ordering your Reason to Smile stamp set (for only $5!).
