Today, I have a beautiful swap card from my friend and fellow demonstrator, Debbie Duval!
This card is made of one of my favourite bundles from Stampin Up!: Bottled Happiness. It’s just so gorgeous and versatile; it can be used for pretty much any occasion. In this regard, I would love to point out the creative freedom that you can take to completely transform how you use a stamp set. For example, the easiest way is by changing out the colours that you use. Another option is to mix and match different stamps to create a new image and feel; you don’t have to use the entire stamp each time, if you only want to use the pattern of one part of the stamp, you can do that too!
As for the colour coordination in this card, I really enjoy the fact that Debbie matched the blue in the floral pattern into the background as well; it creates a well-planned image and helps tie the whole card together. Not only are they colour-matched, but I really love the subtle little floral print as well, as it has the same soft and rounded floral look the stamps offer.
Finally, to add some more details and depth, Debbie used two different embossing folders to create fern leaves and little splatter marks. This texture stands out without adding too much visual clutter and makes the card more interesting to look at. If you want to find the materials and tools that went into making this card, it is all listed below so feel free to recreate this card and share it with me on social media!
