DeNami Design Cardstock Sale!

Hey there crafty friends! I'll be sharing some cards over the next few days using DeNami Design cardstocks. All cardstocks in the store are on sale. Once they have sold out the will not be restocked. Many colors are still available. For today's card I'm featuring Sky Blue. A pack of 30 cards is currently on sale for $6.OO! 


I covered my Sky Blue card base with a die cut panel (ME) of decorative paper. Next I die cut a MFT label using the same Sky Blue cardstock. A PPP Stitched Tag holds my sentiment. The card is finished off with a trio of teeny ladybugs!

I could have just popped up the stitched tag holding the sentiment. But to me, a card looks a little more balanced and cohesive when you pull a bit of the card base forward and into your design. This must come from my floral design background. I never liked it when someone would order an arrangement then ask that one red rose be added! It always looked out of place to me. So to make it work, I would add a bow in the color of the rose, even a butterfly or bird on a long pick having the same color. It unified things...in my mind anyway!!


Head over to the DeNami shop and check out the sale!
Thanks for visiting with me today ~Lisa
