First in a Series

I get inspiration for my cards from a ton of places.  My husband probably gets sick of me saying “that would make a GREAT card!” wherever we go.  But, one of the best places that I get card ideas from is Splitcoast Stampers, an amazing website that caters to rubber stampers. 

Sometimes, I find a card for inspiration and what I create is completely different from what I originally saw.  Sometimes, I will do a pretty literal interpretation of the card but change it up a bit. I found this card and tweaked it a bit to make it my own and add a few of the subtle details that I love.

This is what I came up with.gingham tree1

This card is simplicity at its best.  Rounded corners, a cheerful button, a crimped edge, and fun gingham ribbon all combine with whimsical tree to send cheerful wishes.  I went ahead and created a set of 4 cards with these same details, but each on features a different sentiment.   Here is a picture of all 4 cards together.gingham tree3

I love how cheerful they look lined up together!  Here are some more detail shots of a single card.gingham tree2

One of my favorite touches on these cards is the ivory cardstock used.  It is a natural textured cardstock that has flecks of plant material inside of it.  Love it!

This card set is available for purchase here, at my Etsy shop Papered with Love.

Now, I couldn’t just stop there, could I?  For the next few days you’ll see my series of cards that I created all inspired by the original card on Splitcoast Stampers.  Hope you enjoy these paper beauties!

Happy Friday!
