One Card Wonder Wednesday - February 26, 2020 - Positive Thoughts


It's time again for One Card Wonder Wednesday! I hope you are ready!  LOL!  This week I decided to make a "fluffy" card.  One with lots of layers.  I bought the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set in January   and then bought the new Nature's Thoughts Dies when they became available this month.  I have been dreaming about this card ever since.  

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to make cards with layers.  It is kind of a thing of mine.  As is vellum.  I am known for my love and use of vellum in my projects.  
Today's card is no exception. 

Vellum is a "soft" element in a project, meaning it softens the look of the project, I chose to use all light colors for this card.  Then I added just a few pops of Flirty Flamingo.  I think the combination worked well.  I started with a So Saffron card base and worked my way from there, coordinating colors and elements.

I stamped with the Flirty Flamingo Ink on the inside of the card as well.  I am trying to stay with the theme of "no naked insides" that my upline started last year.  

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
