When I need some focused inspiration, I look for color challenges. This week’s Color Throwdown challenge #717 with mustard yellow, pink, and green inspired this adorable camping card. I have fallen in love with the “Canned Ham” type vintage trailers, so when this Tree Lot Dies was available during Stampin’ Ups! July-August Sale-a-Bration, I had to have it. Dies with all the little pieces like this can be overwhelming, but really once the pieces are cut, it comes together quickly. Definitely need to use adhesive sheets on the detailed die cuts to keep your hands (and card!) from becoming a gooey glue mess! Mossy Meadow & Garden Green make the trees. Crushed Curry for the lights. Blushing Bride added just the right pink accent to the little trailer. When I make cards just because (not for a specific person’s birthday, or thinking of you for someone specific), I never know what kind of sentiment to use. I used Charming Sentiments for a neutral “hey, there!” sentiment. I just love the script for the words in that stamp set.
Tree Lot Dies, Sale-a-Bration item July 2022, now retired. 😦
Charming Sentiments and coordinating dies are currently available in the SU! Annual Catalog.
