I think I’ve only used two sentiments from the retiring set Love Sparkles, but I’ve used them a lot! The big sparkly Celebrate is perfect for the front, or indeed the inside, of a celebratory card. And it pairs beautifully with the gorgeous Fruit Stand DSP.
Here I’ve put a leftover piece of the DSP onto a pumpkin pie base. Actually pumpkin pie isn’t one of the colours noted as being in this paper – the official oranges are peekaboo peach and tangerine tango but due to the watercolour nature of the paper, pumpkin pie is actually a better match. I wouldn’t have dreamed of going outside the lines and picking a different colour three years ago, but since I’ve been carding, I’ve become more comfortable in my colour choices. And pumpkin pie works.
I like the thin border around the paper and then the plainness of the card base with the fun banner straddling the two. I’ve used pumpkin pie for my Love Sparkles greeting and popped it up on dimensionals. And of course the triple banner punch to make the banner.
