Pinterest Inspired




Time for a not-for-a-challenge, Pinterest-inspired, just 'cause I felt like it card.

Here's the inspiration:



I cut 1/4 inch wide strips, which should have fit equally across my 4 inch grey panel, but I ended up trimming about 1/16 inch off the two ends somehow. I love the fun bouncy feel of the brightly coloured strips against the grey. I think this will be perfect for my friend's 13 year old niece!

Great-looking, brightly colored card! Like how you used the paper strips. I have similarly used printed papers but not solids. Solids look good! Nice way to add the BIG sentiment, too. :)

This is awesome Ardyth!

Love this one ~ what a fun card for a 3 year girl! (If there are any PTI products you could enter it at the "celebration" challenge at A Passion for Papertrey.)

Oooh, yum, Ardyth ... vibrant colours, gorgeous font, beautifully graphic ... I love the different lengths of paper and the way you staggered them across the card ... just perfect! Anita :)

I'm headed to my scrap bin to see what papers I have to CASE your card. It's so cheery and well put together.

Now that I looked at the inspiration picture closer, I see that I made a quilt for my daughter with this same design, different colors. Why didn't I think it would be adaptable to a card?

This looks like the perfect "grown-up" card for a 13 year old girl. She'll love it, I'm sure! I know I do. Love the gray background. And that's a killer font. This is sweetly happy. Love this!! Bev

I'm so glad you got to make a card just for fun! You are one busy lady! This is a wonderful way to use snippets!

Isn't it relaxing to make a card 'just because'? No rules can be so much fun!
