This is Monday's second post. Please scroll down to the first post for the announcement of the winner of the Kraft Week give-away!
Here are a couple of very quick, punchy cards to pay tribute to some of StampinUp's retiring bold brights (and one soft subtle).
This card uses gable green and green galore for a fresh, monochromatic birthday card. I will miss these two colors most of the bold brights that are retiring.
The purple card uses almost almost amethyst and lovely lilac.
Simplicity Tip: This type of card is perfect for those times when you need something fast, including a gift set! SU's Sincere Salutations has eight sentiments that are pretty and big enough to be the focal point of a card and cover most possible card-giving situations. Punch three shapes (all the same, or two small and one large) for two opposing corners to add interest to an otherwise boringly symmetrical card. Add a few spots of bling or pearls, and pop a layer, and you're done.
