This very basic, clean grid layout is so, so perfect. You can make it bright and cheery, soft and calming, crisp or distressed, well, you get the picture. It just always works. Four squares in a grid, with a sentiment underneath. That's it.
Who said safe was boring? Not me.
This card came to me in a rare moment of blinding inspiration. I'd been working with eye-watering colors for days and reached for this set from PTI. After making a few extremely forgettable cards with it, this card popped into my noggin and I just made it.
Don't we all wish this happened more often?
Soft, sweet, (dare I say...oh, why not!) sophisticated. It seriously looks better in real life. I love fall, with its sense of hunking down for the winter and savoring life's blessings. There's a peace and calm to that, amidst all the bustle of harvest. I wanted to show that peace.
The inks are chalk (various shades of Versamagic). I stamped onto PTI's vintage cream cardstock, punched with a square punch, stamped a sentiment, popped up the squares, and THAT WAS IT. Well, it did get a tiny bit complicated achieving an overall balanced look with the four different images and colors, but still.
For one wild and crazy moment, I wondered how bling would look on it, but quickly recovered my senses. It's done. It's lovely. I'm so very happy.
