I recently received a card from Sara Douglass, the CEO of Stampin’ Up!. Her personal style is clean and simple, and I liked the concept of the card. So I’ve taken that idea and expanded on it a bit to create today’s share with the Modern Garden images.
This design is one of those cards where it’s most efficient to make two at a time, swapping the papers around to get pleasing combinations.
I don’t normally like diagonals, but this little corner detail is quite nice.
You could make the flowers the more prominent print, but for this sample, I stamped a few of the similar images in the same colors as the print and brought them through.
And here’s a little detail I really enjoyed: I found the Wild Wheat ribbon a little too “heavy” for this particular design, so I pulled out the weft thread to leave the remaining threads loose. I used all of them, but you could even just use some of them to a lighter effect.
For this sample, I made the card front, but was struggling to make it work, so just finished it off with some words and ribbon. As you can see, the diagonal cut is in a different place for versatility.
In hindsight, I would have made the flowers the larger portion of the card if I wasn’t going to stamp flowers as well.
And the same goes for this card, but I still quite like it. Mostly I just wanted to use the card fronts I had already made, plus show how the diagonal can go in any place on the card and still work well.
