This or That Cardmaking Using Hydrangea Hill Suite

Wanna play a game? That is what I asked some of my stamping customers who joined me on Zoom not too long ago. I told them I had prepared card pieces and I needed their help to make four cards. My purpose was to show my customers that sometimes you have to play with your pieces until one of the color combinations speaks to you.

 So we got started with the game "This or That".  It was a fun time, getting their input and sharing these finished cards with them.

Here's what I got ready ahead of time:

Four card bases in Mossy Meadow, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue cut at 4-1/4"" x 11," scored at 5-1/2".

Four layer pieces of matching cardstock pieces cut at 4" x 5-1/4".

Four pieces of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper layer cut at 3-3/4" x 5".

I had the hydrangea flowers and stems all stamped and die cut in the matching ink choices. The leaves were all done in Mossy Meadow.

The tags and greetings were prepared using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, Basic White Cardstock stamped with the two chosen greetings, and matching ink colors.

The embellishments were the Pastel Pearls.

The Ladies had so much fun coming to consensus on which pieces should go together and which direction the card should go (vertical or horizontal). They really discussed which options looked best together and where the embellishments should go as I finished assembling the cards under their watchful eyes.

Their decision making and team work resulted in four beautiful cards. Afterwards, I reminded them that I would finish up the envelope flaps with some coordinating paper, because we didn't want any "naked" envelopes!

I recommend to you that you give this method a try. It's just as quick to prep pieces for 4 cards as one card, really! Then you can play around with which color combinations look best together, saying to yourself, "Should I do this or that?" When you are done, you have four finished cards to share or mail. Sweet!

Happy Stamping!
