It's Thursday, and time to play at Pals Paper Arts! This week we are featuring a sketch created by the talented Margaret Moody. Since it is a classic sketch, I opted for a classic card...and one which is very easy, very quick to create, and yet very elegant. I hope you enjoy another card created with A Beautiful Season.
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Quick and Easy EleganceToday's card is 4-1/4" wide x 5-1/2" long.
- Pick your paper wisely! The patterns in Morning Mocha Specialty Designer Papers are perfect for creating elegant cards. With their slight metallic sheen, they coordinate perfectly with Brushed Gold card stock. And what could be classier than stripes with dots!
- Elegant cards can be made in a snap! Opt for one "wow" element, such as gold embossing. And to reduce the time, not every part of the image needs to be colored. I left the bird "natural" and very quickly watercolored the leaves with Always Artichoke and the berries with Cherry Cobbler.
- Go for the bow! A 5/8" Satin Bow is the only embellishment that is needed to set off the image!
I hope you enjoyed today's card! It really is as easy to make as one-two-three! Won't you let me know what you think in today's comment? Your comments are important to me, and I enjoy reading each and every one. As always, if you ever have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Until next time...
(There was a question in yesterday's comments concerning the watermarks on the coasters I posted on Tuesday. They were made with the watermark stamp from the French Foliage set. I LOVE that watermark image!)
