Easy To Alter Card Layout

Here's a card that we made at a workshop earlier in the catalog year. I really loved the versatility of this card. It could serve for almost anything: birthday, wedding, get well, anniversary, etc. We stamped with Baroque Motifs, put an Ice Rhinestone Brad through the center of the medallion, and used the Kiwi Satin Ribbon behind the medallion. I loved the layout so much, that I wanted repeat it! So I took one of my retiring stamp sets, changed the colors to go with another sheet from the same Designer Series Paper (Urban Garden - isn't it gorgeous paper??!!) and this is what we made.

So this is what it looks like with the Kind Thoughts and Warm Words stamp sets. I love Not Quite Navy, a beatiful and rich color, and paired with the Bashful Blue and Vanilla, it has an elegant, fun look. The Scallop Circle Punch coordinates so well with the center swirl and I LOVE the Ice Rhinestone Brads. We used our paper snips to cut out the butterfly. I hightly recommend these scissors, since they make cutting paper a breeze - way better than the cheap scissors I bought at the local craft store. I'd love to see what you can do with this layout. Post a link here or send me an email with it attached. And thanks for sharing!
