I needed a card at the last minute (of course!) and this super-quick one is what I came up with. It was easy-peasy, yet as a "less-is-more" sort of card designer, I really enjoy it. The card is clean and simple, but effective with just a touch of color along with the crisp whites.
Honeyblossom Sprig is just one of over thirty new dies from Memory Box. I cut it out in super-smooth White Cougar Card Stock and added it to a White Linen Note Card. Although it is white-on-white, the smooth die-cut on top of the textured card creates contrast. I like the size of our Note Cards, 3.5" by 5"; you don't need to add lots of stuff to fill it up, either inside or out.
I felt a little color was in order, so I added Razzle Berry card stock behind the open flowers. Razzle Berry paper just happened to match the new Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. So...to stamp "Just For You", I had to open a set of the Summer Seasonal Distress Inks—'natch. That stamp is from from Impression Obsession. A bit of sparkle was added to the pink flower centers via Star Dust Stickles. Stickles and bling—rarely a bad idea.
I prefer decorated envelopes to naked ones. A decorated envelope gives you a peek at the contents and a clue that there is something above average inside. Pay attention : )
One of my go-to stamps is this one, Sonoma Print, stamped here with, you guessed it, Picked Raspberry. I knew I could find an excellent excuse to open that set of new Distress inks.
