Today I’m inspired by…Christmas cards. Our friends begin sending them out the day after Thanksgiving- I’m not that organized.
Here are some cute card ideas from the web. Perhaps you can use them for inspiration for your own cards.
Today I’m inspired by…cards. I went to Papyrus to look for a card for a wedding we are going to next weekend. I could have spent hours in there! I went online to their website at www.papyrusonline.com and found several inspiring cards to share.
Birthday in Colorful Blocks Inspiration point: I love the color blocks and the use of the white letters. I could definitely use up some old letter stickers to make a card like this.
Balloons and Gifts Inspiration point: These patterns don’t seem to go together but the card is so cohesive when they are used in repetition of presents and balloons. What a great way to use scraps!
Red Blue Yellow Green Circles Inspiration point: In real life the blue and red middles in the circles are glittery- it is so simple and pretty! Think of all of the color combinations that would look great with this pattern.
Button Flowers Inspiration point: These felt and button flowers are the sweetest (and look easy to re-create)!
Elegant Damask Inspiration point: Yet another great way to use patterned paper scraps! I am picturing using the damask pattern like this for a wedding card…or plaid for a more masculine birthday card…
Two Wire Flowers with Sequins Inspiration point: This card is so simple but elegant at the same time. I love these flowers as a card or an accent on a layout.
Heart of Gems Inspiration point: I know I have some random gems like this around- love the idea of using them to create one big shape.
Flowers with Patterns Inspiration point: I have a lot of paper packs from different companies that combine fun patterns with solids that would be great for a card like this. I could also use this same idea on layout…perhaps flowers like this or leaves for fall or snowflakes for winter…and I could use punches…
Bouquet of Flowers Inspiration point: You have to click on this link and zoom in to appreciate the amazingness (is that a word??) of these handmade flowers. They are made of layers of pink tulle or mesh with a gem and some beads for the center. The stems are made of wire and they are beautiful!!
Oh Papyrus…how I love thee…
