Last night was my Creative Card night and it was the perfect opportunity for me to try out a few different card ideas that I had been wanting to play with. One of those ideas was to play around with a design by my downline, Pam Wu. She had made this very cool card using the Sale-a-Bration Everyday Enchantment designer paper and framelits, and so when I was trying to create something for my class; it was the perfect place to start. In the end I changed things up a bit, but its clear the inspiration came from her!
I loved her idea for using the Everyday Enchantment brads in the center of the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch. I also really liked how the designer paper looked with the scallop trim border punch on each side of the paper. So I started with those elements and went from there. I had wanted to play with the organdy ribbon that came with the Everyday Enchantment brads and so I wrapped it around and through the scallop trim.
Finally, I had the hardest time deciding how to do a sentiment (though I think it would look just fine without one). I ended up pulling out my Curly Cute stamp set and getting a little creative. Because the words are so close together on the stamp, I used a marker to color one word at a time and stamped them spaced out on my cardstock. Then I could cut them out with extra padding around the words and sponge the edges to help them blend.
