Happy Friday! I hope you have some fun creative time set aside for the weekend.
I designed today’s card using the Celebration Tidings Bundle. This Bundle was in the top three of my wish list and I’m so glad I got it. It’s been that one “go to” bundle for me.
My inspiration for this card was a wreath ornament. That’s what prompted me to add the circle frame behind the sentiment label.
I started with a few different color combinations and finally settled on Cinnamon Cider, Pretty Peacock and Crumb Cake. I’m usually drawn to oranges and blues when I have a choice and did it again in choosing this plaid pattern. I was contemplating cutting the sentiment label in Whisper White, but chose to go with Crumb Cake after a few color combination experiments. The Crumb Cake label gives this card a little more warmth which is what I wanted to achieve.
Coloring the pumpkins and leaves was easy with the fine tip of Light Cinnamon Cider, Light Pumpkin Pie and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
Below are my card measurements.
- Cut a standard A-2 card base in Cinnamon Cider.
- The Pretty Peacock layer is 4″ X 5 1/4″ and the Whisper White layer is 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″.
- I cut a circle frame with the Layering Circles Framelits, cut the sentiment label, heart and sprig using the Celebration Labels Dies and hand cropped the Plaid Tidings DSP flagged banner.
- The size of the flagged banner is 1 1/4″ X 5″.
- I also hand cropped the sentiment banner. It measures 1/2″ X 3 1/8″.
