Using Hues of Happiness Flowers to Create a Original Card Front

 Phew, what a week it has been! I've had trouble sticking to my Monday-Friday posting schedule this week. Life and travel got in the way a bit. So here comes Friday's card on Sunday! You get to see two similar cards today, so I hope it was worth the wait.

In the flowers I fussy cut out from the one sheet of the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper (DSP), I STILL had some left over, so this time I covered the 3-3/4" x 5" Basic White cardstock layer almost completely with flowers. I did move them around before adhering so I had a design pleasing to my eye.

The two cards I'm showing today are similar in layout, but you will see how a change in one color can make the cards look different.

Today's cards are using the smallest sized greetings in the Go To Greetings stamp set. 

Above, you see the color combination of Gorgeous Grape card base with a Night of Navy layer. Looks a little more subdued, I think. The tag the Happy Birthday is stamped on in Gorgeous Grape ink is a leftover tag I had from one of my monthly Paper Pumpkin kits. Gold Foil was punched with the Double Oval Punch. The tag and the oval were adhered together, then raised up on mini-dimensionals. Two Gorgeous Grape dots came from the Glossy Dots Assortment to complete the card design.

The card above only has two things changed on it but to me the card seems brighter and more fun. The Night of Navy layer changed to a Melon Mambo layer. Two Melon Mambo dots were added to another Paper Pumpkin tag I had on hand. 

The inside of both cards have a layer of Basic White and a couple small flowers glued in the lower right corner.

Each envelope flap had coordinating DSP added, because you never want a naked envelope!
