American Crafts nailed it with the name of today's steal, the Fresh Squeezed Collection. The happy blend of pinks and yellows splashed with the twists of blue and lime make me want to bust out a lemonade stand and try and make some money! Or at very least, help my kids set one up, take photos, and then scrap about it with these perfect papers. :)
Today I got to whet my appetite with this fun collection and create more cards for the Operation Write Home Card Drive.
The first card I made sort of laid the ground for the sketch this week. I started out with a horizontal format then moved to a vertical one.
I really love the color palate on this collection. It was a hard choice to decide which side of the amazing papers to use so in an effort to stretch it I based a few of my cards on plain cardstock and really love how they turned out! Add the cute stickers and dimensional embellishments and these cards came together in a snap!
I'm so thrilled to be sending these cards on so that they can brighten someone's day!
