Bright Ornaments And Trees Card

Hi everyone, Taheerah here wishing you a happy Thursday!

Sometimes cards don't need sentiments. It's shocking, but true.

Although we normally feel that we need to add a sentiment to finish off a design, sometimes the actual design speaks for itself and feels 'finished' in its own right. And that has its advantages too - less thought about which sentiment suits a recipient, something that can double up as a card or tag or even a matching combo... sentiment-less card actually expands your possibilities rather than diminishing them.

I felt the cute little modern ornament and tree designs from the WPlus9 Holiday Trimmings stamp set were the perfect stamps to set an example:

Stunning, right?! I love how this turned out!

I used a multitude of bright but pastel-toned colours for my all-over card design. Doesn't this feel like it could be a high-end wrapping paper too?!

When you're using so many colours, you want to use something to 'anchor' your design. For me, that's what all the black details add - they just tie everything together and make the design pop!

A little flick of some iridescent silver glimmer mist and this baby is ready to hit the town!

I'd love to hear what you think of this card. Is there someone you know who'd love to receive it? Thanks for stopping by!
