Hello! Thanks for joining me for Just Add Ink #357.
It’s always a pleasure to design cards for a challenge – and this colour combination, put together by Jan, is a dream!
This sweet card is on it’s way to brighten someone’s letterbox. I try to send as many handmade cards as I can – it really is a wonderful feeling to check the letterbox and take out something pretty!
I’ve used the Rose Garden thinlit, deconstructed into Sweet Sugarplum blossom & Island Indigo leaves, which I’ve stapled to the Sahara Sand panel.
I love stapling on cards – it’s mess-free, quick, easy & gives the pieces of the card movement.
But of course, you don’t always want them showing – so for this card, I’ve covered them up with a Very Vanilla Thick Twine bow.
If you’ve tried to order pearls in the last couple of weeks you’ll noticed that they have disappeared! Don’t worry, they’ll be back on 1st June 2017 when the new catalogue starts in a configured format. I haven’t seen them yet, but I hear they are flatter – perfect for mailing!
I’m still trying to decorate the inside of my cards (and the envelopes too!)…
It adds such a nice touch to open a card up and see more prettiness!
Do you have someone in mind this week to send a handcrafted card to? Make a list of people that you’d like to shower with paper happiness!!!
Use our colour challenge combination for your card and share your creation with us on the Just Add Ink blog.
You’ll also find the rest of the design team cards – and with colours as beautiful as these, you know the range of projects will be stunning!!!
