Hi folks! I'm back with post #2 for today. I just had to take the opportunity to play along with the Make it Monday Challenge at PTI. Erin Lincoln demonstrated a fun and easy way to make a card using a group of related sentiments. After rummaging through my collection, I decided to make a Congratulations card that would work for a graduation or a number of other occasions.
I love the simple design and fun colors of this card. I stamped all but one of the sentiments onto white cardstock with black ink, singling out one to stamp in orange. I added a few stars from Star Prints and an Aqua Mist button to balance out the empty corners.
In a happy accident, I originally planned to center the sentiment panel on the Orange Zest mat, but as I was laying it out it shifted, and I decided I liked the off-center look. I think it adds more interest to an otherwise simple design. The panel is mounted on foam adhesive onto a Hawaiian Shores card base.
So glad you could stop by again today! Thanks again for all of your comments!
