Something you may not know about me… I tend to be an overthinker. That holds true for my card making sometimes. I sit down with an idea and then take forever tinkering with colors, embellishments, layout, etc. Well, yesterday was different! I needed some thank you cards and wanted to get them done before the baby woke up and the toddler got bored and started deconstructing the craft room.
So I sat at my table and said, lets do something fast… and one look at a Lucky Limeade flower sitting on my table and the Berry Blossom designer paper in the box at my feet and I was off and running.
So, I had a scrap of the designer paper and I often pull my color combo cues from the paper itself. So in this case, I decided to run with the Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, and Wisteria Wonder combo. Since I had the Limeade flower, I thought the Wisteria made a good border for the patterned paper and built from there. I was able to get two cards done in about 10 minutes and then I put together this card from the last few scraps.
I popped the Limeade flower up on the largest flower from the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch in Calypso Coral and added a little bling to make it fun. Then, I had already glued down the Whisper White paper before I stamped the Thank You and after stamping, decided it needed something else. So, enter the Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Write marker to the rescue with a bit of faux stitching. Fast, and turns out I loved it! I hope it makes the recipient smile too.
