I had a little bit of time this past weekend to photo-edit some cards from June. LOL And here's one!
It's another cluster card, done in a beachy style for some happy couple, somewhere. :-) I looked in my box of already-stamped-and-colored images, and thought these nautical cuties would be pleased to get together with one another.
It's my favorite way to make a card when I'm pinched for time: look on my craft desk at the inevitable little piles all around me, and challenge myself to make something good out of assorted pieces. I've honed the formula, too:
- Stamped images (or stickers)
- Patterned paper or embossed cardstock (or both)
- Little embellishments such as pearls/gems, or sequins
- Fabric (in the form of ribbon, or a smidge of burlap,etc.)
- Maybe a sentiment; depends on how much room is left.
I like my cards to be touchable, and have a bit of texture, and possibly a bit of bling. :-) Today's card certainly fits the bill!
Thanks for taking a peek!
