Happy Monday to All!
Hope that today’s post will illustrate you some ideas how you can customize your handmade cards and make them even more personalized and special. On the card I’m sharing in this post I added a name of the recipient. I think that this type of cards can fit any occasion. They are great for birthdays, name days, births, graduations, mother’s and father’s days, anniversaries or just simply to say hello to your friend.
Besides you can play with the recipient’s favorite colors, add their favorite animals or flowers or maybe color some fun critters like their pets. The possibilities are endless.
Now a few words about how this particular card came out. As you understood it was made for someone special since there’s his name displayed on the banner (LOL!), but as for the layout and the colors I was inspired by the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #282 and Color Challenge #46.
It was a little bit challenging for me to keep the card so light, but to be honest I’m very satisfied with the final result because I managed to use so many products and finished to have (at least in my opinion) a very pleasant result. The pattern paper that you can see at the bottom of the card was made by embossing the paw print stamp from MFT Cool Cat set with a clear dull embossing powder on a cream card stock, the light blue panel on top was done using ink blending technique, the cute funny cats from the same stamp set were water colored with my new Mijello Mission Gold set and the die-cut banner was finished with copic markers (R00-R0000-colorless blender). Of course, at the end the sequins mania makes me adhere some sequins here and there.
Hope this post will give you some inspiration! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!
