Just Because Card

Sometimes I send cards "Just Because" and I like having several cards with this sentiment in my stash. To create this Just Because Card I combined the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary with the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts, PPA308. The colors are nice and cheerful and I had fun playing with the Falling Flowers stamp set and May Flower framelit dies by Stampin' Up!

The challenge colors include: Peek-a-boo Peach, Tangelo Twist and Cucumber Crush. My patterned paper options in these colors were very limited, so I went with the retired designer series paper stack using Tangelo Twist. Using the retired Decorative Dots embossing folder with Whisper White cardstock for the 3.25" square area was then matted to a slightly larger piece of Peek-a-boo Peach Cardstock. The focal oval was cut and Just Because sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set was stamped using Tangelo Twist ink. The leaves were adhered flat to the oval and the flower is popped up with dimensionals. To the center of the flower I added some Dazzling Diamonds for a little sparkle and that's it! I'm also entering this card into the anything goes challenge at Creative Corner. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. I like the Just Because sentiment - I usually use Just for You but I should change it up a bit. I like these colours too! By the way, I sent you an email yesterday... did you get it?

  3. What a gorgeous card Andrea! I love your stamped and die cut flower, it frames your oval perfectly and great use of white on your panels to balance the bright colour scheme. Lovely sentiment too - it's always nice to receive a card - just because! Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
