Clean + Simple Sunday: It Starts with Art
Today I'm sharing a card I made using items from the Follow Your Art suite on page 53 of the 2019-20 Stampin' Up! catalog. You can watch the video on how this card came together right HERE.
This set caught my eye right from the first look through the new annual catalog. I think it was the color combination and the crafty theme that made me excited to own this stamp set and a few other elements from the suite. The patterned papers are divine! Although I'm not showcasing those today, they really are a MUST HAVE if you purchase the stamp set.
In keeping with the clean and simple theme for day, I chose to steer clear of patterned papers and focus on texture. Tone on tone texture adds a subtle interest and really draws your eye to the focal images of a card design. I chose the Button Button embossing folder to emboss the background panel in whisper white. I stamped the ribbon spool image in Pacific Point ink, electing to forego the coloring today and just leave it as an outline image. That blue is a nice contrast to the Terracotta Tile panel border and sentiment ink.
Of course, it isn't one of my cards if it doesn't have a little sparkle somewhere! I added some silver metallic thread behind the ribbon spools, making a little "nest" with it and attaching with a glue dot before securing the ribbon spools with some dimensional adhesive. I then added one, large sparkle to draw the eye right to the sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed the card for today! Love to read your comments so please leave me some love down below if you liked this card. You can find all of the supplies to make this card in my SHOP. Thanks so much for stopping over today!
