Here we are at Monday again! I’ve gotta say, I am LOVING all the inspiration from all those who participate in the Global Design Project each week. If you haven’t been part of it yet, check it out by clicking the image below…
The challenge coincided with a special occasion in my family, my Mum and Dad’s 35th wedding anniversary, so I used the sketch for my card design.
My starting point was looking up what the traditional and modern gifts are for this anniversary. I was hoping to incorporate it somehow into the card. I was delighted to find that the traditional gift is coral so I used Calypso Coral as the main colour feature for my card. One of my favourite colour combinations is Calypso Coral and Pool Party so that was a given for my accent colour. Although Stampin’ Up! has had Pool Party seam binding in the past, they no longer carry it so I just dyed my own.
My favourite part of the card are the two little silver punched hearts. I wanted them to represent my Mum and Dad so while they are both silver, I punched one from foil and one from glimmer paper so that they are different. Some sequins from the Project Life Moments Like These Accessory Pack finished it off perfectly.
Now it’s your turn! Create your own project using the GDP sketch and enter it here. You could be one of this week’s winners!
