I hope you are ready for another quick and easy card. I have been making quite a lot of cards along these lines of late. It seems that I get more requests for this type from my customers. Thankfully it does not mean that the cards are not pretty or special!
I do not do a lot of “Clean” cards. To me, that means a lot of White space. I tend to go for more color. This card has made me rethink my norm!
More Retiring Products
This card is full of retiring products from both the Annual Catalog and the January – June Mini Catalog. The stamp set is part of a bundle in the Mini Catalog. It is the Oval Occasions stamp set. Thankfully the Double Oval Punch that pairs with the set will be Carrying Over! I adore this punch. It is so versatile.
The color choices are from my usual source. Yes, that is the DSP. This little strip of DSP is from the Playing With Patterns 6X6 Designer Series Paper Stack. I totally love all of the colors in the pack, and there are quite a lot! I started this card with only this strip of leftover DSP. I pulled the Calypso Coral as the base and the Purple Posy layers directly from this strip.
The flowers are from the Oval Occasions stamp set. As is the sentiment. They are colored with Stampin’ Blends of the same colors as cardstock. The only addition is Mint Macaron for the leaves and Mango Melody for the daisy.
I mentioned the Double Oval Punch above. I did use the larger scalloped section for the sentiment. For a background piece, I added a piece punched using the Everyday Label Punch. They actually layer together better than I even anticipated! That is definitely a win!!
The card base is 4 1/4 X 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2. The Purple Posy layer is 4 X 5 1/4. The White layer is 3 3/4 X 5 with the DSP strip being 3 3/4 X 1.
Thank you for stopping in today! I hope you have a good and relaxing weekend and please stop by on Monday for another new project.
