Following on from my design exploration blog post, which I have to thank you all for such a resoundingly positive response, I have a card to share inspired by a design which dropped into my inbox! Design inspiration is all around us and as sat at my computer the other day I was going through my emails when one from a UK stationery company, Fox and Star dropped into my inbox regarding a free postage and packaging offer for National Stationery Week.

Needless to say, I ordered a few stationery goodies but also as I looked at the email the graphic advertising the offer really stood out to me and the more I looked at it, the more I realised it would translate into a card perfectly. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.

Looking through my ink swatches, I picked out a colour scheme of Blush, Mango Smoothie and Sea Glass for the background and Crimson for the lettering. For the background, I blended the ink colours into white pieces of card, then trimmed them at an angle and adhered to another white panel which I’d cut to be slightly smaller than an A2 card base. I then adhered this colourful panel with foam adhesive to a white card base.

On a smaller panel of white card, I stamped a sentiment from the Crafty Friends set in Crimson ink. I then added the envelope icon and coordinating sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I foam mounted the sentiment panel over the colourful background and then foam mounted skinny strips of black card above and below the panel.
