Hello everyone!! For today I have two cards I created using my new Sassafras collection Sweet Marmalade. As I mentioned on a previous post it took a little bit of staring at this paper before I could cut into it all inspired. But now I must say I am so loving it.
My creations today are a little similar as far as layout goes. I cut out some of the images and adhered it to the upper right corner of my base cardstock. The result a simple yet retro/spunky design. Love it!!!
Now that I look at this card it reminds me a little of the Wizard of Oz. I wasn't thinking of it at all when I created it. I guess the hot air ballon and the yellow strip on the border some how made me think of the end scene :) Remember how the movie ended?!? Too funny!! For the sentiment I chose black ink. I really like how it goes with this particular pp and finished it off with a small strip of yellow rhinestones. As a finishing touch I added some sparkles to paper.
Now for the second card!! I really like the randomness of it. There are so many little pieces here. At first I thought of making it a baby card (because of the little elephant) but then I made it more general using PTI's Mixed Messages ("Enjoy" was handwritten). With this sentiment it can be used for baby or anything else.
Here's a close up so you can see some of the shimmer I added (my latest go to item). Simple, fun and definitely unique card. So as far as I'm concerned from the Sassafras line Sweet Marmalade, Handmade is a hit (at least for me) now on to tackling the others Sugary Sweet, Candied, Preserve, With Love & Confection.
Hope your day is as sweet as this line of paper is!! It's breakfast time here right now and I'm so tempted to get me a a slice of toast with some preserve. I think I'll go with fig, yum!!
