I love creating handmade cards, but I have to admit, I am not always great about sending them. This month, I am making a pledge to send/give a card a day. I have so many stockpiled from creating for my blog, so it really shouldn't be hard. Plus I think a hand-stamped card would brighten anyone's day! The first card I sent out was the one I made for today's color challenge over at SSI. Check it out:
I treated myself to some high ticket goodies over Sale-A-Bration and so I am just getting to using some of them. I grabbed the new Flourishing Phrases stamp set for this card:
I did a gate fold card. I grabbed some of the Daffodil Delight floral paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack for one side and a piece of Cucumber Crush embossed with the Petal Burst folder for the other. I stamped the big flower in Daffodil Delight and fussy cut it. Then I layered it over some stamped leaves and then matted that on some Chocolate Chip. Of course the flower needed a rhinestone. I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip as well. Here is a peek at the inside:
I took the large flourish and stamped it off twice to give a very light appearance. I added some of the floral washi tape in Cucumber Crush from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape. Of course I made a custom made envelope as well:
This card came together super quick and it was so easy. I love the bright colors. I am looking forward to hearing what the recipient thought of it! I am also looking forward to seeing what you can create with these three colors. Head over to SSI and upload your project today!
