1 Design 2 Ways

I love it when you can use one design to create different cards by just changing up or adding different elements. When I do my live demonstrations, I always do a simple stamping card and one a little more stepped up. This week was no different except I used the same basic design for both cards.

Highlighting Retiring Products

This demonstration continues down the path of taking a last look at some of my retiring favorites. For this video, I dusted off the lovely Art Gallery stamp set and matching dies. The simple stamping card features just stamps, ink, paper, and some embellishments, while the more advanced cards adds in some die cuts to give the card more visual interest.

I used the exact same layout for both cards but by changing the focal point just a bit by using the scalloped contours die cut shape and changind the card base to Pacific Point really makes it pop. If you didn’t know, blue and orange are complementary colors and work really well together. I think that way the the image just seems (to me at least) to be more vibrant on the Pacific Point card. What do you think? Leave a comment to let me know your thoughts.

Measurements & Supplies

The measurements for both cards a almost the same. Both card bases are 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. I added a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside. For the simple stamping card, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock to 3″ x 4″. For the stepped up card, I used the second largest rectuangle die from the Scalloped Contours die set to die cut a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock. And that’s it! I used some Pale Papaya sheer ribbon and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little pizzazz. Happy Stamping!
