I was looking through my stash of cards yesterday, looking for something pretty... for someone pretty... and I came across this card I made forever ago, and I remembered how much I love this simple design!
I really enjoy the different size strips in the background, and how the papers aren't super matchy-matchy but they really "go" together.
So before I mailed it out, I wanted to quickly add the design to my sketch book so that I wouldn't forget this fun design... and of course in the process I was inspired to create a new card using the design.
I found some pretty paper in my stash - the background is a black glitter cardstock that is so cool, and I love the punch of black, it really makes the fuschia stand out. I also added the simple bow to the one side. This came together in NO time, I just love it! (I'm all about simple... ya know?)
I used a Card Base that measures 5 1/2 x 4 inches when closed. If you are making your own, just cut a piece of Cardstock down to 5 1/2 by 8 inches and score the long side at 4 inches.
Black piece: 5 1/4 x 3 3/4
First strip (smallest): 1 x 3 1/2
Second Strip: 1 1/2 x 3 1/2
Third Strip: 2 1/4 x 3 1/2
This is a fun and fast card to make! I hope you try it out!
