A Fun Card Layout

Today, I have a really fun card layout! You can use it when you are at the very end of a package of DSP and only have scraps. Likewise, you could rip open a brand new package of DSP and start there. There is so much versatility here!

I have had a thing for monochromatic cards lately! And I am really happy with this one made almost entirely of Gray Granite. Maybe this shade simply makes for a nice transition from summer to fall colors. Additionally, this allows this card to be friendly to both male and female recipients.

Where This Card Layout Started

First, my creative process began by using a sketch of sorts. And while I liked my card, I felt that it was a waste of time embossing that first layer because you could not see it.

Next, I made the Basic White layer smaller. This resulted in being able to see all of the pretty embossing! I also added an additional layer for more color.

Several More Cards

Finally, you can see that this card layout works with any DSP, stamp set, or suite of products! So much fun!

I hope that you enjoyed this sweet little project. Let’s all try really hard to make a card and mail it out to someone this coming week. As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

The images from the stamp set may not appear like much on the case or in the catalog, but WOW do they stamp beautifully! Today I used Blending Brushes, but you could also use our Stampin’ Write Markers to add color to the stamps.

Additionally, don’t forget that my inspiration came directly from the catalog. My card doesn’t look just like that one, but it provided an idea to get me started. Remember that the catalog can also be referred to as an idea book!

This bundle can be yours for FREE with a $100 purchase until August 31st or until supplies are gone.
