Today we asked Shanna to share some cards she created with Making Memories' Chloe's Closet. This is what she said:
I like to round up the specific products I plan to use when creating my card sets in order to keep them coordinating. I don't like to make sets of identical cards. What fun is that right? But I DO like them to match each other. With this specific set I chose these products to work with from the Chloe's Closet line: (all of which I instantly fell in love with as soon as I saw them!)
The 6 x 6 designer paper pad
The package of Trims
The package of Blooms with matching buttons
The package of flower gems
I wanted to create the cards out of kraft paper in order to match the kraft colored matching gift bag. Once I've gathered up the products I want to use then that's what I stick with while creating. Limiting myself this way forces me to get creative from one card to the next as far as the design of each card goes. Once you start a set like this you'd be surprised how quickly you've created several cards without even stressing over it. If I start struggling with the design of the card then I reach for my favorite card sketches and I'm done in no time at all. This makes it easy when I already have the product & supplies in front of me.
