My first two cards feature a popped up panel. For a little added fun, the portion that is popped up is either a shade darker or a shade lighter than the image on the base. This technique is sure a lot easier now with a stamping tool like the MISTI.
To make my popped up panel just a bit fancier, I used a decorative edge from the Select-A-Size Edge Dies. I really, really love these dies, and they are in Concord & 9th's Last Chance category (sniff, sniff!), so make sure you grab them on sale before they're gone.
The sentiment on this card comes from Painted Rose. You'll notice that the handwritten script in the Painted Rose sentiments is in the same style as those in Grateful for Everything, so they are really easy to swap out.Grateful for Everything is so detailed that it took me a little bit to find a sentiment that would stand out enough between the two images.
The bold font in So Happy for You was just right, especially paired with the die cut "you" from the You're My Happy dies (which was easily altered with one little snip).
My last card has a variance in color as well, but this time it is created with vellum instead of using differing shades of ink. It features the fabulous stripes from Shiplap Sentiments as well as my favorite sentiment from Grateful for Everything, which was embossed on the vellum.
And here's one last look at the cards all together. :)
Thanks so much for joining me today and all this month! You most definitely are going to want to see how my teammates used this set (we've got some talented colorists in this bunch!), so make sure you're next stop is the Concord & 9th Blog. You are headed for a a treasure of inspiration. :) Have a lovely weekend!
