Do you ever come across something in home decor, stationary, or fashion that as soon as you see it you know you want to make a card inspired by it? I know I do! Last month my son got a birthday gift in the gift bag shown below and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a card using the colours in it. I was also inspired by the two-tone use of each colour and the geometric pattern.
Here's a close up of the card:
Initially, I had used white cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Triangle Pattern Background Die but once I got all the colourful little die cut pieces in place I realized it didn't have quite the feel of the gift bag. Rather than redo the whole card I just die cut the background again in black and adhered it on top. It adds a little dimension and on an angle you can see a bit of the white peeking through. I then die cut three pieces of Simon's Fog Cardstock using Simon's Painted Hello Die and adhered them together for added demension before adding the sentiment to my card. Finally, I finished things off with some of Lucy Abram's fabulous Sequin Shaker Selections, which Simon Says Stamp carries!
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back later this week with a card using Simon Says Stamp's September Card Kit.
