This card uses tired paper with current card stock and the Happy Hour stamp set for a fun card. This would be great paired with a hostess gift for any of your holiday parties, just change up the colour scheme!
Banners are still really trendy, and paired with traditional colours, this card is suitable for anyone on your card-giving list. I also love how the ribbon and circle focal point look like an ornament; if that was left loose at the top, this card could easily do double-duty.
Sometimes you have a large focal image that just needs a little extra wow. Adding the button and ribbon embellishments here, along with the thin DSP strip, adds just enough interest without taking away from that beautiful bird image.
This classic layout could be easily adapted for any occasion! Make your DSP do the work and add a simple sentiment. The top section could be embossed for extra interest.
I hope this helped get some creative juices flowing. As always, you can contact me if you need any products or suggestions, or shop online at www.shelley.stampinup.net.
