Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I’m so happy to share last night’s LIVE with you and my two “finished” cards! lol I did find all my adhesive … under my laptop! Who put that there … LOL!! Oh my gosh, sometimes I can’t believe myself.
I’ll be sharing a simple layout that you can use as inspiration to create beautiful cards using the Hues of Happiness Suite … it’s time to cut into that designer paper!
Let’s watch the video first, ready? Let’s Get Started ….
My Very Vanilla card has a card base of 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ then scored and folded at 4-1/4″ and we are creating in the vertical / portrait orientation. The card front is 4″ x 5-1/4″ and embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I did pop the entire card front up to create a little drama! You’re going to love it …
You can see I also layered the die cut flowers around our “Brushed Gold” specialty paper that I cut into a ring using the Layering Circle Dies. You can use any combination of colors with this layout … and the Hues of Happiness designer paper gives you many choices!
I finished off the card be embellishing it with the Gilded Gems …
The next card has the same dimensions as the first card … the Basic White card front of designer paper was also cut the same, and so was our gold ring. For this card we are using the horizontal / landscape orientation. I did this just to show you that the orientation does not have to change your layout …
I embellished with the Brass Butterflies this time and aligned them in my “triangle” layout … remember, that draws your eye around the card. I also decided to add a greeting as the white ties into the card base and balances it out. The greeting was stamped in Coastal Cabana which coordinates with the darker of the two flowers.
I love all the texture this card has … so pretty! Take a peek at the inside of the card, that is where I used that “partial” rose, remember to die cut them too and keep them to use inside the card or on your envelope.
I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and video … please feel free to share these with your friends. That is the best form of flattery!
Thank you for hangin’ out with me. Have a beautiful day.
