Pink, Pumpkin and Peppy!


I really enjoy letting designer paper dictate a pattern or design of a card.  This paper just made me feel spunky so I decided that it needed some extra texture and dimension and not a lot of extras.

The base of the card is Whisper White and I layered the designer paper (which is from the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin’ Kit) on a piece of Pixie Pink cardstock. I then took out my 1/2″ circle punch and started punching out circles from the scraps and adhering them with dimensionals. I also added some Tempting Turquoise brads for a different texture.

On the top, I added a 1 1/4″ circle of Old Olive and over that a large Pumpkin Pie button from Playground Buttons with a thin piece of Pixie Pink cardstock through the centre.

Along the bottom of the designer paper piece, I added a strip of one of the self adhesive die cuts from the Simply Scrappin’ Kit and below that I stamped “thinking of you” from Trendy Trees in Old Olive. I also paper pierced out from the saying to the end of the cardstock.

To cover the seam, I wanted to do something different so I cut of the finished edge of grosgrain ribbon pieces in Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie. I then braided them together.

This card makes me happy just looking at it! Something about these bright and fun colours together.

Thank you so much for brightening my day by stopping by!
