Two Cards, One Look

Stampin Up

I love how you can create two very different looking cards from one template. 

Both of these cards use the same layout yet the card on the left has a more elegant feel than the fun card on the right. Both cards use only two colours plus a neutral and both were embellished with ribbon and an accent from the Pretties Kit but each card is unique. That’s what I enjoy about stamping – I am inspired by so many of the cards I see and with a few simple tweaks and design changes the card is all mine.

 

Stampin Up Friends 24-7

 

 This card uses the Bella Bleu designer series paper, which is quickly becoming a favourite, on Not Quite Navy textured cardstock. The card is wrapped with ribbon from the Elementary Ribbon Originals and three medium pearls from the Pretties Kit are adhered along the bottom. A quick and easy card that expresses your message simply and elegantly.  

 

      

Stampin Up Razzle Dazzle

This card features the Razzleberry Lemonade designer series paper on Rich Razzleberry textured cardstock. The designer series paper is wrapped with the polka dot grosgrain ribbon in Rich Razzleberry, polka dots down. The Pretties kit is used again here with the medium rhinestone brads. As I didn’t want the brads to be visible inside the card, I removed the rhinestone from the brad by opening the prongs in the back holding them in place and adhered only the rhinestone to the bottom of the card.
