Either that or I hear "Hello" and I follow it up with "...Neuman". Seinfeld fans will get it. ;)
Anyhoo... back to my card. This was the 3rd card we made in my April "Brushed" card workshop. I originally designed this card for a Card Swap that I participated in. I really like this one because it's not really the colors you first notice when look at the paper pack. I wanted to do something with the Juniper & Pear patterned paper so I took it and added the Canary accent and I think it worked out great.
Of course, it helps that the stamp set is super cute. I used the "Have a Happy Day" stamp set and I just love it. That flower reminds me a bit of Mary Engelbreit from back in the day. Am I dating myself?
Another fun thing I did with this card was to add that same Juniper houndstooth patterned stripe, like I did on the Mother Day/Birthday cards I made (previous post). Apparently I can't get enough of that paper from the "Paper Fundamentals Whimsy" pack. I also used our newer White Shimmer Trim to add two more accents. I put a strip along the houndstooth and I also made a center for the flower by doubling up the tape and punching it with a regular 1/4" hole punch (the kind most people have around the house). It didn't add too much bulk, but gave it a little somethin' somethin', hee hee.
Here's a closer look at the popped up flower and shimmer trim accents.
I hope you enjoyed this card. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for stopping by!
