Good Sunday to y’all. I’ll make it quick and easy for you today so that you can get on with your weekend!
Today’s card is a clean and simple, lightly layered – one might even say barely layered! – note card suitable for just about any kind of a day. Need to say “hey!”? This is the card. Need to tell someone you were thinking about them? Here you go!
I used a swoopy swatch image from the Over the Rainbow stamp set and a die cut from the Greetings Thinlits. Take a look-see:
For this card, I was playing along with the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #160….you’ve still got time to play, too!
My color scheme is pretty simple and kind of classic. I used Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray. Yes, I know that the gray looks a little like black in my pictures. My lighting is kind of driving me crazy in my new stamping set-up. It works great for actually working, but I’ve yet to find the sweet spot for photos! Be patient with me, okay? 🙂
I used the swatch image from Over the Rainbow and stamped my colors repeatedly on my panel of Whisper White card stock. For the front of the card, I stamped the images full strength. I repeated the color rotation – Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray (this is the Basic Gray Archival ink) – and kept that going with my sentiment.
I cut the sentiment using the Greetings Thinlits – I cut two from Basic Gray card stock and one from Melon Mambo. I layered them up, adhering them together with my Fine-Tip Glue Pen. If you were here in person, you’d see that when you look at the card, you can just barely see the Melon Mambo layer on the bottom! 🙂
Using a couple of Glue Dots on the back of my layered sentiment, I wound some Silver Metallic Thread around the back of the sentiment. Silver just seems to go with these three colors. I used more of the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the sentiment to the card front.
I SNAILd the panel to a mat of Melon Mambo and set it aside.
For the inside, I repeated the three colors in the center of a Whisper White panel. This time, though, I stamped each image off once before stamping inside the card. I decided that it needed a little something more….so, I pulled one of the sentiments from One Big Meaning. Using my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker, I inked up just the word “You” and stamped it in the center of my color swathes – using my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.
I SNAILd it to a Melon Mambo mat and then into a Whisper White Note Card. I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel just for a little touch of inner bling. Then I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and added one more little bit of bling with another Rhinestone Basic Jewel to finish it off.
For the envelope (it’s the Note Card envelope that comes in the pack), I repeated the stamped-off-once swathes on the front…
…and added a liner made from a Melon Mambo design in the Brights Backgrounds DSP stack (yes, the Envelope Liner Framelits even has a die for the note card sized envelopes!).
Et Voila! Quick and easy peasy! And a great CAS card to have in your stash!
Hope that you have a great rest of your weekend and I’ll be back in your inbox bright and early on Monday! 🙂
