Go Bold with Color for a Modern Spin!

Create this Modern Thank You Card with the Painted Lavender Dies and Filled with Happiness Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

For a bold and modern contrast with the lavender floral die cuts (Painted Lavender Dies – one of My Favorite Things), I used Tahitian Tide.  An Early Espresso layer below pairs beautifully for a rich and dramatic combination.  Layers of white keep the look clean and add elegance, like fine stationery!

WHAT I LOVE!  I’m a big fan of sentiments in beautiful fonts.  The Stampin’ Up! Filled with Happiness Stamp Set (“Thanks”) uses a very hip, retro font which landed the stamp set on the list of My Favorite Things in the spring mini.

2 MINUTE TECHNIQUE TIP:  I simply can’t stop using the Stampin’ Up! Basic Borders dies (secured in place with Post-It Note Tape) to dress up my envelope flaps.  Takes coordination to a new level!
