3 Cards, 1 Layout: Featuring Let It Ride, Peaceful Poppies, Ornate Garden

Once or twice a month, I give my team a card layout challenge on Facebook. I love creating card designs with layout inspiration as a starting point because it helps me focus my creative energy on choosing which stamp sets, colors, and embellishments to use. Here are three cards that I made with the challenge layout.

I started with the retiring Let it Ride stamp set. I haven't used this stamp set very much, so I thought it needed some love! If you know someone who loves horses, you definitely need to get it before it goes away at the end of the month!

2-1/4" Circle Punch

For my next card, I wanted to create a card with black and white and a "pop" of color. I struggled with whether or not this Poppy Parade card base was more than just a "pop". What do you think? I used Peaceful Poppies Elements for the focus point. These die cuts make it so easy to make quick and simple cards. I stamped the flowers on Whisper White cardstock for the background piece.

For the last card, I used some brand new products -- the Ornate Garden Designer Paper and Ornate Style Dies. I love the daisies in the paper, so I made my own with the Large Daisy Punch. I am so sad the 1/2" Circle Punch (used for the flower center) and Leaf Punch are retiring. Unfortunately, the Leaf Punch has already sold out in the United States. It was one of my favorites! (Don't wait to get your Last Chance Favorites or you might miss out!)

As you can see, this layout works for any stamp set or color combination! I hope you'll give it a try!

Nice layout. It’s interesting how the details of the cards have progressed from simple to a little bit more to even more on the 3rd card.
