I love to use sketches and check Pinterest for cards. Sometimes I’m inspired by a nice stamps set or stamp line. I haven’t been making cards for all that long, and so I’m still learning all the elements that make for a nice, cohesive design. I often admit, that my imagination is pretty limited, my supplies are simple (many are thrift store finds), I’d love to own a set of nice markers, but don’t, but my worst nightmares are how to use colors and patterned paper.
So I really stepped outside the box for this card and the photo tells it pretty well I think. Sounds silly, but I’ve looked at the bright green, chevron patterned paper at least a hundred times and said to myself, “What do I do with it?” So today you have it, inspired by garden gloves.
The Cricut flowers (believe it or not) are from the Create a Critter, Hedge Hog, Accessory. I did a random “flower” search and found it. For the ‘Thanks’ I used a stamp from the Hedge Hog set that I recently received from Stamps of Life. I loved the text style and I thought it went well with this fun card. I’ve decided to link this card to the Color Throwdown #405 Challenge.
My challenge to you today is to find something crazy to inspire one of your cards. If you do, share a link in the comments. I’d love to see it. That’s it! Thanks for visiting today. Hope you have a great weekend.
