When I am creating cards for my display boards for paper shows like the upcoming Paperific paper show, I am in need of quick and easy layouts as I have to get quite a few cards made. Plus at present I am supposed to be making swap items for our upcoming Stampin’Up! Convention in May so need to get things done in priority! Posters are completed, class for this month is ready so I can now start on some swaps for my team of demonstrators attending Convention!
This card uses one of my tried and trusted card layouts, one I always come back to when card making in a hurry. It is so adaptable to so many different stamp sets.
I came up with the colour combination by using my Colour Coach from Stampin’Up! ( very handy when card making in a hurry!). Colours are So Saffron, Pool Party and Not Quite Navy. The last colour is one of the retiring colours ( June 30 ) and it is interesting to note that in the last few cards I have made I’ve used at least one of the retiring colours. Not quite sure what to make of that……. Well new colours always mean new faves and new and exciting colour combos to try! Plus I have seen today the new upcoming In Colours for 2013 – 2015 and they are gorgeous!!!!! Anyway enough vacillating (love that word) and back to my card!
I really like how the new Cloudy Day embossing folder turned out. It looks fabulous used on either side – embossed or debossed. I’ve used it on Core’dinations Pool Party card stock for this card.
