The Stampin’ Up! retiring stamp set Just Believe, Bonnie Klass and the Sunshine and Sprinkles designer series paper were the inspiration for this clean and simple (CAS) card. (The complete supply list is at the bottom of this post.)
I love this layout and have used it numerous times over the years, so when I saw Bonnie’s Open Seas card with the world map down the left side I knew just what I wanted to do. And since I wanted it bright and cheery I went straight to the Sunshine and Sprinkles for color inspiration.
The center panel measures 3-3/4″ x 5″ which allows for a 1/4″ border on a standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card. This size panel is my go-to when I’m layering color on color. The circle were stamped in Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight and punched out with the 1-1/4″ circle punch. After laying them out and adhering the circles to the panel, I used my paper snips to trim the circles at the top and the bottom.
I stamped the sentiment from the same Just Believe stamp set and wrapped Bakers Twine around the panel before I adhered it to the card base with dimensionals. Another option would be to use a mask and stamp the circles directly on the card front. For more information on using a mask, check out this post or watch the video below.
As I mentioned before the Sunshine and Sprinkles dsp was the inspiration for the colors on this card and I lined my envelope with paper from this pack. I hope to post a video tomorrow and show you how easy it is to line your envelopes with coordinating patterns.
