Stampin' Up Greetings Thinlits go bold and graphic

Did you see this card I made yesterday using the fabulous new Greetings thinlits dies from Stampin' Up? That greeting is made so easily with one pass of the Big Shot and what's more it leaves a 'negative' which you can use for another card - how fun is that?! Here's my 'negative' card:

Pacific Point is my new favourite blue! I love it with Cucumber Crush (as on the flower in yesterday's card) but it makes a bold contrast with Crushed Curry too! That strong colour combination can easily support the matching designer paper in this striking stripe.

Here's that 'negative' greeting, revealing the blue of the card stock beneath. I added a simple punched flower and leaf motif in more bright colours.

What do you think? Is this card a little too bold for you or does it make your heart sing?!

You'll be glad to know that the housing market is buoyant here in the heart of England. This desirable residence was recently sold...

... possibly to a family of badgers!

  1. I love this striking thank you card. You've been having lots of fun with thank you cards this week. Great use of the punches too.

  2. Another gorgeous card, Vicky! I love it! xxx

  3. Not too bold for me either! I have been considering these framelits but was worried they might be difficult to cut. Good to hear you haven't had any problems. I love the idea of using the negative pieces too. Vx Cold, wet and rainy here for the next week so cheerful colours are welcome. You on the other side of the world would probably class this as your Spring! haha!


I'd love to know what you think. Do leave me a comment - it always makes my day! Vicky x
