Affectionately Yours – Hello

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Karen Robinson – Affectionately Yours – Hello

A change of pace today, no holiday projects, just an everyday sort of card, a thinking of you kind of card that you could send to just about anyone for any reason, or no reason at all, sometimes they’re the best kind of cards 🙂

I’m still not comfortable coming up with my own ideas for cards from scratch, I usually need some sort of springboard to get me going. This is one of those times, I saw a card in a magazine and liked all the elements on it, the heart, doily, flowers and banners but wanted to use them myself  in a different way.

Little Paper Party, Affectionately Yours, Hello

This is my version and there’s a lot going on here, but I hope it all works together like my inspiration card. The paper for the background, heart and banners is from the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP. A gold doily in the centre helped me keep all the decorative elements together and adds a lovely shine.

Little Paper Party, Affectionately Yours, Hello 2

The flower is the only place on this card where there is any ink, I like to make a card without stamping sometimes and I really don’t think this card is missing it!  The word hello was die cut using the Hello You Thinlits and a bow in Thick Cucumber Crush Baker’s Twine and a few pearls are the only embellishments.

The inside is simply finished with a layer of Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White cardstock with two rows of coordinating washi tape at the bottom (sorry, I forgot to take a photo).

I definitely took a giant leap out of my comfort zone with this over-the-top design, but I think it turned out quite well. I’m usually not into a colour riot, but sometimes you just have to try something new and so many patterns and colours on one card is definitely new for me.

I hope you like my little experiment and that you’ll come back for my next Halloween project on Wednesday.

Cheers,
Karen
