Inspired by…Posted: July 3, 2009
The following cards were inspired by the talented and very amusing Joan from Paperlicious. I made them a couple of weeks ago after I saw hers and then forgot that I had photographed them. I was inspired by her cards HERE and HERE
Note added – Joan’s layout originally came from Krystie Hersch
I decided I would try and use up some cuttlebug embossed scraps I had lying around in place of the designer paper panel. I like the colour contrast of the Teal and Moss mattes below but think there might be a bit too much white.
When I looked at the Handsome Hunter embossed swirls I wasn’t particularly inspired. The only thing I could think of to use it with was some gold for a Christmas card. So that means I have ONE Christmas card done! Sticking those little half gold pearls on was a little frustrating and I almost left it with just three, but that did not look right so I persevered.
The last one is my favourite with the crisp contrast of black, white and Brocade Blue. I love the classy textile cuttlebug folder.
