Happy Paper Players Sunday, friends! This week LeAnne has a great sketch for us that highlights the design principle of three.
The circles in the sketch can be any shape, accessory, stamp or element that you would like. I played around with a few things but ended up sticking with the circles because I love circles as much as I love threes!
I was also able to play with my sneak peek items from the upcoming Holiday mini catalog including the gorgeous Spice Cake designer series paper which gave me the color scheme of More Mustard, Pool Party & Soft Suede. For my fall card, I stamped the Woodgrain background stamp in More Mustard on my card base of the same color. For a little extra "oomph" I sponged the edges of the cardstock with Champagne Shimmer paint:It's just not a holiday card unless it glitters, lol! Falling Leaves provided the graphic leaves for the focal point and I popped them out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and layered some Soft Suede 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon as well as Spice Cake DSP.
Hand-Penned Holidays is another sneak peek item. A gorgeous sentiment set that covers all the major fall & winter holidays in one beautifully elegant font.The inside received some more Spice Cake DSP and a scattering of More Mustard, Pool Party & Soft Suede leaves. So I hope you liked my Thankful for Three card today. Please let me know what you think! Be sure to check out the rest of The Paper Players Design Team for some amazing inspiration. We hope that you will consider playing along with us this week and if you do, please link up your creation by midnight Friday, August 26th (PST) to be in the running for A Cut Above or Headliner. Thanks for stopping by today!
