Summery brights

This is one of my favourite card designs because it’s simple and quick to produce. You could step it up with more layers, background stamping, patterned papers but, as this was for our cardmaking evening at the village hall, it had to be simple due to time restraints.

It uses colours from the Bold Brights family which I always think are nice and summery.

“Wonderful” comes from the Welcoming Words stamp set, which features six word stamps in this same style. You can’t buy this set but it’s really easy to earn it for free by holding a workshop in your home.

Stamps: Doodle That (p55), Welcoming Words (p6)
Cardstock: Gable Green, Brilliant Blue, Pink Passion, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon – Whisper White (p86), 1 3/8” circle punch (p80), 1 ¼” circle punch (p80)

  1. Very nice. I like the little hint of blue colour you added to the circles - nice touch. CC

  2. That is gorgeous.
    At first I thought there was a slit in the card but then I realised it was ribbon.
    Gorgeous as ever.

  3. very pretty. I forgot how much I like Gable Green for Spring/Summer.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
