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 ūüôā

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.

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
