Today I am featuring a simple card that I created for the Global Design Project #GDP058. This is a sketch challenge.


As you can see, this is a simple card created by following the sketch which is shown below.


My goal with my card today is to show that Christmas stamp sets from the 2016 -2017 Holiday Catalog can often be used in more generic ways.   For example, Here's To Cheers on page 39 of the catalog is used to create my card today when paired with the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.  


The pop of color provided by Emerald Envy Cardstock provides a nice accent for both patterns of DSP. Beacuse the DSP is bright, cheerful & a bit busy, I chose to ink my stamp with Archival Black Ink & stamp directly on one of the patterns from the DSP.  It worked well because the pattern does not interfer with the words of the sentiment.



This is a bright and cheery card suitable for adults or kids. 

I also created the same card using Melon Mambo as my accent color which would definitely be more feminine.


Here is another look.


 Which card do you prefer – the Emerald Envy or the Melon Mambo?
