More Paisley Prints
Here's another card made with Paisley Prints dsp. It's very different from the other Paisly Prints cards I posted. That's the great thing about Designer Series Paper. You can get a lot of variety from one pack and you can get a cute card very quickly (guess that's two great things). This card is perfect for when you just need a simple card to send a quick note.
The background is made with the square lattice embossing folder.
And, just for kicks, here are some of my prototypes from making the Mother's Day card that I posted previously. I'd like to say that every time I make a card it comes out just how I envisioned it on the first try. But, I'd be lying. Truth is, sometimes I make several versions, tweaking it a little each time until I come up with the perfect card. I like all of the other cards in this picture. They just weren't what I was trying to accomplish. On the bright side: I now have four nice cards ready to be used or donated.
Note that the bottom card has the modern label punch, but no sentiment. Often if I don't have a specific use in mind for a card, I don't add the sentiment. Then when I need a card in a hurry I can stamp the sentiment I need from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punch it out with the Word Window punch and add it to the card.
