How to make a stunning Boho Indigo Greeting Card. I am going to be totally honest with you this morning. Since the new Mini Catalogue was sent to Demonstrators, I have been suffering from ‘New Catalogue Overwhelm’. I had thought I was past that now that I am heading for my 5 year Anniversary (shocking!), but apparently not. In the last couple of years being able to have a really good look at the new products at Stampin’ Up! In Person events, has helped me to decide if I really like a new suite/bundle/stamp set. Of course, because of the pandemic, we have not had an In Person Demonstrator Event since November last year. Hopefully things will change soon with the roll out of a vaccine.
The other challenge, especially when I am trying to get ahead with projects, is that the retiring products can disappear overnight. So I am going back to the Annual Catalogue and trying to limit my choices a little. One very easy way to do that is to look at the Product Bundles, in this case the Boho Indigo Product Bundle. I love this and have hardly used it at all. Time to put this right.
This is a straightforward card, just a mat, Designer Series Paper layer, a piece of ribbon and some simple stamping and die cutting. I chose Sahara Sand as my ‘neutral’ (having started to use it I can’t stop), and cut my paper a little smaller than my ‘usual’ size to show the border off a bit better. The Vase is stamped in Sahara Sand too, then die cut along with the gold foliage elements. The result is a simple card that can be used for so many occasions. But there is a hidden element.
For once, I remembered to stamp on the inside of my card. I chose the floral that is the same style as the Patterned Paper I had chosen, along with 2nd and 3rd Generation stamping in Misty Moonlight. I think this would make a perfect card to send someone to thank them for a gift, for helping you out, or ‘just because’.
