So I was looking through my Color Inspiration Magazine that came out earlier this year and I got an idea. Not so much the colors but the layout. If you have it, it's on page 46 - Spread Sunshine. I just love this simplicity of it, so here are some simple birthday cards I came up with.
I really like the look of white ink on black paper, so I wanted the white to look a little messy on the embossed images. The first card I used Flourished Frame and added the white ink and flowers after stamping my words on some Kraft paper from my scrap paper. Who says brown and black don't go together :o) I topped it with someCuttersCreek branded and Prima flowers.
This card I also embossed, but with one of the images from the Organic Flourish Collection. I also used white to enhance the embossed image but no where else. I just really like the simple feel to it. Both cards took maybe 10 minutes total so this was perfect for a card in a hurry or making some for your stash of birthday cards. And they look completely different!
thanks for looking!
