I can't believe we are already more then half way through January! Too be honest 2018 has not had a great start for our family, but I am trying to focus on the good. Back in December I signed up for a card swap that was arranged by the lovely Alison Solven. We created a card that focused on products from the Occasions Catalogue and another card with products from the Saleabration catalogue. This is the card I made using paper and stamps from the Picture Perfect Party Suite of products.
Now I am not one for mass creating, so trust me when I say I struggled with coming up with a design that I could create multiples of and that was not too complicated to use in a large class setting. I ended up casing the layout of another card I created a few months back. When I'm stuck for ideas I like to look back on other cards or scrapbook projects that I have created in the past in hopes for some new inspiration. I encourage to do this as well.
This card layout is a great way to use up scraps of designer paper and a fun and easy way to mix several patterns. I started with a card base of Thick Whisper White card stock then layered on a piece of Berry Burst that I stamped with one of the confetti images in the matching ink. One of the awesome things about this stamp set is that there are buildable images like the party blower (and I totally hard to google what that think was called!) that I used here. It makes it very easy to create an image with multiple colours. To give the card some more interest and a little texture I added a few rhinestones and a Baker's twine bow.
