Good day my fellow Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon fans! I'm here on this oh so happy Monday to share a cheery little card. Over this weekend's blog hop (click to take a peek if you missed it) I shared another card using one of the PPPR card base files. Neither of which I had used before. Honestly, having a different card base really makes a card that much more unique. I look forward to using them more often!
Even though this is a simple design, the small details make it that much more interesting. Because of my base card color choices, I wanted a small hint of color to make the peach floral. I used the shadow feature on my design software to make a small mat for that shape (part of the card base cutting file). In addition I used a border punch to add the small scallop to the blue floral (part of the card base cutting file). Those 2 small things add more interest, as does adding embossing like to the sentiment and the stamped and embossed texture on the flower pot base.
The mouse and flowers were all cut on white paper and colored with markers. I was able to really choose my colors to match the floral paper well and it was easier then searching for small paper scraps to match. I also love the texture to the flower center (in addition to white and glitter gel pen on the centers).
This card was a lot of fun to put together!
Here are the files I used, starting with the card base on the right. I love Lisa created both landscape and portrait options!
