Bright Blossom

So it's been another week of hot weather, which really makes crafting difficult when you are feeling hot and sticky.  Sometimes as much as I want to create, I end up finding something cool and relaxing to do.  So when I had to make a whole bunch of cards, and I mean a whole bunch!! I needed something easy to do but would still make an impact!

I chose this series of designs using some of my favourite colours, like Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade & Coastal Cabana.  And a little bit of Summer Starfruit thrown in!

I started with this design using one of my note cards.  It turned out OK but the sentiment stamped in River Rock just didn't sparkle as much as I thought it would

So I tried a different stamp from the set and added some punched flowers too. Not bad but not quite what I was looking for either.

 So I settled on this design where I've flipped the card, fancy embossed the bottom of the card, stamped my cute little bright blossoms and tied off with twine.

I've also changed the ink colour to Smokey Slate which I think works a lot better for the card.

I've used Island Indigo bakers twine for interest to the card, wrapping it around twice and tying off into a knot or a bow.

I've stamped the blossoms in Island indigo or Coastal Cabana which look so pretty.

 I've also added little butterflies from a scrap of Baja Breeze cardstock using the Beautiful Wings sizzlit.  It truly was the card I wanted in the end to send out to all my lovely customers and friends with their new Catalogues.

This card was of course inspired by Pinterest and was the perfect card for making many of on a hot and I mean hot summer day!!
