Card, A Good Day, Sweet Soiree, Clean & Simple

I love a card that’s quick and easy but still packs a visual punch.  The Card below was created by Loretta Ingerman using the A Good Day Stamp Set and the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designers Series Paper.  Loretta pulled her colors from the selected pieces of Designer Series paper she chose to stamp her image “Just Because” in Calypso Coral and backed it with a circle of the same color.  She then punched the sentiment out using the 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and the Calypso Coral with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.  She popped these up on a circle of Silver Foil Sheet cut with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch.

I couldn’t resist making my own version following her pattern to a tee but simply selecting a different design in the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper and a different sentiment from the A Good Day Stamp Set.  We both chose Old Olive as our background layer but where she used Powder Pink Cardstock for her 1 1/4″ flap strip I went with So Saffron.  Rich Razzleberry was the color I was looking to pull from the paper and accomplished this by using it for the sentiment ink and the layer behind it.

I’m hoping Loretta and I both inspired you to grab this beautiful paper while it’s still available, as it’s only available until the end of May or While Supplies Last.
