World Cardmaking Day 2012
Whew, I managed to get a card made for World Cardmaking Day today. I was struggling a bit with inspiration, but I saw this card on another blog and just knew it would be a perfect design to use with my Botanical Silhouettes set.
It's so simple and so very elegant. Perfect for a classy thank you card! I love the look of textured Kraft on Kraft cardstock. It was quick to make too. I die cut the negative circle mat and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder. I stamped my leaves in Simply Chartreuse on the white mat and added the flowers in Blueberry Sky with Harvest Gold centers. I stamped my sentiment on a Harvest Gold banner. Then, that whole panel was adhered to the card base with pop-dots.
I wanted to add something to the inside, so I cut another white mat and stamped the same flowers partially off one side. Just another simple elegant touch.
There is a blog tour for World Cardmaking Day here if you want to see lots of wonderful inspiration. I'm off to check out all those blogs and also catch up on my Google Reader. It's simply bursting with stamping goodness! :) Now go make yourself a card!
