Are you ready for 1 more card in my Quick & Easy card design series? Using the same basic design as the previous 2 days, I created a thank you card.
Once again I selected a bold patterned dsp. This time it is a selection from the Occassions Mini Catalog called Retro Fresh dsp. Instead of anchoring the sentiment with a narrow cardstock strip, I changed it up by using a piece of Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim.
Keeping with the square theme provided by the dsp, I punched a small square from So Saffron cardstock picking up yet another color from the dsp. The square establishes the base for the Calypso Coral Button. A sweet bow tied with Pool Party Twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessorry Pack ( a freebie with a $50 purchase before shipping & tax) livens up the button. It can be found in the Sale-a-brations flyer.
Did you notice that my colors are not exactly the same but they still work together. For example, I used Coastal Cabana Ribbon & Pool Party Twine. Also, I used a Calypso Coral button and I stamped with Calypso Coral ink but the color found in the dsp is Tangerine Tango. That's the beauty of using Stampin' Up! products – the colors blend!
As you can see, my basic card design is the same as what I used previously. But, changing up the paper, embellishments and sentiment change the look of the card. Another "Quick & Easy card"! Take a look at this card compared to the one that inspired it.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow because I will be using another caed from the Stampin' Success Magazine for my inspiration. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
