GCD + A New Take on Color Combos

     Hey there friends! Here to show you some fun ways to incorporate some of your favorite non-thanksgiving colors like pink, yellow and aqua blue into some thanksgiving cards!!

 Picking non-traditional colors can be kinda tricky, but the key to making it work is picking paper with appropriate patterns and motifs. Obviously, if it's a Thanksgiving card you don't want to use floral patterned paper, but don't let that stop you from fun and pretty colors like pink and aqua blue which are found in GCD's Sunswept and Candytuft paper from the Splendor collection.

I inked some SEI leaves and attached them with twine and tape for a fall-ish look!
A simple sentiment is the perfect finishing touch

 For my next card I used some more paper from the Splendor collection. I mixed Heirloom, Labels and Tags and Pink Flora. I then stamped some leaf stamps from Avocado Arts to bring in a fall feel to the cards bright colors!

I trimmed the label and stamped the sentiment and then adhere it under a fun paper ribbon treatment.

Well, that's it for me today! Check the blog for more amazing ideas and projects all month long!

  1. I give up---I cannot keep up with your awesomeness! You are so amazing--the way you fold your papers and layer them or tie ribbon/string/floss.....(sigh). Pure genius and craftiness.
