How to Design a Card with Lesley Croghan {Loving Life!}

Lesley here, and today is my final post as a designer for the Sweet Stamp Shop! These last three months have flown by! Whew! I have had a ball working with Nicole and her diverse images! It was so much fun creating! I am going to miss being on this team! Thank you so much Nicole, for the awesome experience.

Nicole has asked me to share some ideas on how to "start" a card design. For the last three months, I have shared all the ways I have been inspired to create card! Today, I am focusing on this awesome "Sparkle Rainbow" photo which I found on Pinterest! LOVE!

Tears in my guitar

I went into my stash of Sweet Stamp Shop images and pulled out the following stamp sets...

And here is my card! A clean and simple look; using the rainbow image and mix and matching the words from the Starts Here set! I used some clear and sparkly Stickles on the achieve the sparkle in the photo!

Here are the measurements:
White Card Base-A2 (5.5" x 4.25")
Red Base (5.25" x 4")
White Piece (3.5" x 4.75")
Black Trim- 1/8th smaller than the white piece
