PPA137 – Betsy’s Blossoms Thank You

This card is created from another challenge. My card structure is based on a layout by Margaret Moody and posted to Pals Paper Arts.

Here’s her sketch:

And here’s my card:

Using my Stamp-a-Majig, I captured black-and-white images on the outside of the center piece and bright, bold colors on the inside. This effect, along with the large color blocks on top of the card, really draws your attention to the bold colors of the flower and leaf at the center of the card.

Make a Cake

Make a Cake is a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that debuts in the 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalog. I love this set for its simplicity and it’s versatility. I made these two 3″x3″ cards to demonstrate how perfect this set is for both feminine and masculine cards. The set is also perfectly suitable for non-birthday celebrations. I hope you like them!
