As I'm preparing for my Stampin' Up! Fiji vacation this week (woot), I'm appreciating Quick & Pretty Cards more than ever for sharing and sending! Today's card goes together in 10 minutes or less. See more of my Quick & Pretty Cards.
- How do you incorporate big patterns from 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper on cards? Frame your hands like a camera to isolate parts of the pattern that are more card-friendly. My little birds and stripe pattern (from Stampin' Up! Birds of a Feather) were clipped from a much larger design.
- With all the stripes, I opted to turn down the embellishment "factor." A couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the sentiment and a satiny Raspberry Ripple Ribbon keep the interest up but confusion down.
- You may recognize my sentiment. I used it to demonstrate my 1 Minute to WOW! Video on Making Rectangles with the Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die. I'm so glad I found a spot for this "thank you" from Oh, Hello stamp set.
