Hey all!!! Here we go again!!! It's Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop time!!! Nice bright colors this week! We are a small group this week but strong!!!
You may be hopping over from Helen's blog!! How awesome is her design!!! When you are finished here, be sure to click HERE to go to Robbie's blog! She is our fearless leader & the organizer of this blog hop! She works very hard each week to get the colors all organized & get US all organized! Not always an easy task! I speak for all of us on the hop that we truly appreciate all her efforts!!!
So this week's Design Seeds pic:
Here are the MDS colors that coordinate:
Our little added piece is to use a non-standard fold on the card. Meaning not the standard fold in half!!! So here's what I came up with!
I rarely use this stamp set-From My Heart. Not sure why. It's a nice set! Most of my customers, however, tend to need cards for specific occasions-birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, etc. This one has more general statements of the heart. I think I may use it more often. The images are nice & large & most work well with one Framelit or other!!!
Now the fold! Ok, so I tri-folded the card! I've discovered using the
Scallop Edge Tag Topper punch to be very versatile! Here I'm using it as a "clasp" of sorts for the card! One side I cut from the card base. Cute trick! Wanna learn how??? The other end I used a 2" tag of a different color (Garden Green) for some umph. I'm wondering if I could've added something. Something makes me think it's a bit plain. Do you have suggestions what I could add? It's a neat card to give as a gift though. The recipient gets to open the little bow & all! A little like a little gift all on its own!!!
Speaking of ribbon, I am in LOVE with the new 1/4" Cotton Ribbon!!! It is soooo nice to work with! Easy to make a bow or a know or whatever. Elegant yet casual. Love it!!!!
Colors used this week are Blushing Bride, Real Red, Basic Gray,
Garden Green & Pistachio Pudding. Skipped the Pear Pizzazz this time!!!
So take a hop around this blog hop!!! Head over to Robbie's then keep going! Lots of fun & some very creative & clever fold ideas for your cards!
