It’s Time to Celebrate with The Card Concept

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad you are dropping by today! Another great season at The Card Concept kicks off today, and we have got a gorgeous inspirational photo to share with you today for challenge #126, Time to Celebrate! Take a look! You can see how our design team was inspired, and enter your beautiful Time to Celebrate card over at The Card Concept blog right here: https://thecardconcept.blogspot.com

This is an elegant, lush photo that feels classy and luxe to me! So I took a little visit to my local craft store and looked at some gorgeous papers, embossed in shades of black, gold, pearl, and coral. I found two gorgeous sheets, one with these adorable tiny bees, and the other, a beautiful gold and pearl marble. I brought them home, played around, and came up with this! What do you think?

I cut out this intricate honeycomb pattern out of the gold and pearl marble, then cut out the tiny, individual bees and inserted them in random honeycomb cells. Then I cut out the tiny balloons in pretty glitter paper and added the little fox. I think HE is the one who is going to celebrate!  All together, with its intricate and lush design, and the fancy papers, it’s time to celebrate my Classy and Elegant card!

Now it’s your turn! We’d love to see what you’ll create. Pick your favorite style or mix and match!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Live your life in color!

Holiday Baubles with The Card Concept

Hello Crafty Friends!

Welcome to our newest challenge from The Card Concept, Holiday Baubles! Have you seen the beautiful ornament-inspired ideas from our amazing design team? They all inspire me every month! Our challenge photo features shiny, vintage ornaments in shades of pretty teal, turquoise, blue, and white. You can see the design team’s projects, and enter your inspired Holiday Baubles card over at The Card Concept right here: https://thecardconcept.blogspot.com

I was so inspired by these lovely vintage ornaments that feature the etched snow-white details, and fell in love with the pretty snowflake star on the top ornament.  I used the amazing new die from Poppystamps, Leafy Snowflake Frame, to create these two little square cards that are the perfect size for a quick thank you note or even a holiday tag. I almost used foil paper, but instead selected a yardstick with a pretty sheen to it for a subtle shine for my Clean and Layered card..

Now it’s your turn! What will you create, shiny foil ornaments, or vintage charm? Shabby chic or Classy and Elegant? Use one of our style ideas or create something all your own, it’s up to you. Link it up over on The Card Concept.

Thanks so much for joining us today.

Live your life in color.
