Here's a set of cards that was submitted at Turtle Soup for their 8/2 Friday Inspiration Challenge. You can see the challenge here.
This is the inspiration photo:
Simply create a project using the above photo as your inspiration. You have the option of making 1 layout, 2 cards, 2 tags or two ATC's.
I decided to create 2 cards, using the same sketch and the same papers. One is a feminine card and the other is a masculine card.
I was inspired by the colors...mostly all the green with a touch of yellow. Even though it doesn't look like it in these photos... my cards are mostly green.
Here's the two cards together.
This card is pretty plain.... but for a masculine card... it doesn't seem right to me to add flowers, lace, etc.
Burlap was added between the two pp. A small sticker sentiment was added in the lower right and 3 buttons with cording from the burlap knotted through each one.
Here's a closer look.
Ahhhh... here's a card more my style! A feminine card complete with flowers and a butterfly! :)
The background was embossed. The leaves were cut from a paper bag and the butterfly was cut from pp and the wings folded up for some dimension. The flowers and gems are home made. A metal sentiment was added in the lower right.
Some close ups for you.
Supplies used for both cards:
Paper: DCWV, White Cardstock
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Sentiment Sticker: K&Co.
Sizzix Leaf Die
Paper Bag Leaves
Flowers: Home Made
Gems: Home Made
Sketch: Splitcoast Stampers (SC41)
Hope you liked my cards.
