Happy Saturday and here’s my Simple Saturday Sampler for this week. I created today’s project with a sampling of patterned paper for my Simple Saturday Sampler post, but the colors I used were inspired by the Fab Friday 82 Color Challenge. Pretty, soft colors… Mint Macaron, Pool Party and Blushing Bride.
Lots of framed layering gives the simple design a more balanced look. The layering anchors the simple banners and sentiment, and I created a wide flagged banner (the Blushing Bride hearts patterned paper) to anchor the sentiment cluster. This is a 5″ square, and because I was using a sampling of patterns, everything had to be large.
… and to make my card a special handmade gift, there’s a matching envelope. A piece of patterned paper and my Envelope Punch Board made a perfect 5″ square envelope in a snap.
Here’s the Stampin’ Up! Supply List:
- Card Stock – Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Love Blossoms DSP Stack, CherryOn Top DSP Stack, a slice of card stock from the Tin of Cards Project Kit.
