Swap Card Spotlight - Shelley Harpur

Lisa Henderson

As we approach the holiday season, I think now is the perfect time to show the funky fresh designs! Today, I have a gorgeous card to share from my friend and fellow demonstrator, Shelley Harpur! 



Although the flowers, iridescent rhinestones, and pink and white striped cup are a bit busy, they all work together with the blue flower to really emulate a fun summer energy.  By swapping out the colour of the cardstock for some of the other colours in the paper, you can instantly transform this card to suit any personality!

My favourite part of this card, which, I believe, can be transferred over to any theme, is the depth and different textures. The translucent vellum detail creates a fun touch that we don’t see too often and adds a layer of mystery, as our brains like to be curious about things we cannot see perfectly clearly. Furthermore, the way the flowers are layered in the cup creates depth. Finally, to top everything off, I love how Shelley added some little rhinestones; they add the extra pizzazz to complete the whole look!

Listed below are all the materials and tools Shelley used while making this card, so feel free to take inspiration from this awesome design and recreate it with your own twist!
