Happy Monday! It’s a short week as we rapidly approach Easter weekend – yippee! I am so looking forward to an extended weekend – we have had so many activities on in our weekends recently that it will be really nice to have one at home and to fit in some fun activities too! What do you have planned for your long weekend?
Today’s card was CASE’d straight from the Occasions Catalogue (page 17) – I only made 1 small adjustment to the design but it’s still essentially the same card and that’s what I love so much about our catalogues – if you are stuck for inspiration you can simply start by copying one or two until you are ready to head out on your own!
I love how pretty the images are in this set and how you can layer them up together. There are also so many ways to add colour to them – colour them with blends, watercolouring, watercolur pencils, markers or simply stamp the images straight onto coloured cardstock – so many options! On this example I coloured using my inkpads and an Aquapainter.
How gorgeous is that Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon – it’s worth making this card just for the opportunity to use that scrumptious ribbon! The main panel is also stamped on Shimmery White cardstock which lends this card a beautiful subtle shimmer!
