Believe - four cool

CASEd from Sandi MacIver at Stampin' with Sandi.

My final design for October's "Last Thursdays" card class was a simplified version of a card I found at Sandi MacIver's website this week.   

Not only did I love the layout, the bright, contrasting orange color also made me wonder how it would look in other colors from the Brights Collection.  So, I pulled out my Brights Collection Designer Paper Patterns Stack (it's a great go-to paper assortment), and selected a few colors from the rainbow!

Believe - pumpkin

I started with a Soft Suede card base, cut so it would fold vertically, then stamped with the Parlor Prints background stamp in the same color. The 2" x 4-3/4" Pumpkin Pie Patterns DSP is layered on a piece of 2-1/4" x 5" Early Espresso card stock. I tied a piece of Very Vanilla Seam Binding around the card front before adding the focal image.

Believe - pumpkin 2

The Just Believe stamp was colored on directly with Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie markers, stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and die cut with the Labels Collections Framelits.  The next largest Framelit was used to cut the Early Espresso layer behind it. 

Notice the paper-piercing detailing courtesy of the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack.  Receive the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack FREE with the purchase of the Christmas Gift Bundle this month only.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and it's double-punched with the Word Window Punch to make it shorter. 

Believe - mambo

This version uses the Melon Mambo Patterns Paper, a Melon Mambo marker and the Melon Mambo Scallop Dots Ribbon (I used the plain back side).  I also changed the background to En Francais.  Otherwise, everything is the same.

Believe - daffodil

This one features Daffodil Delight Patterns Paper, a Daffodil Delight marker and Daffodil Delight Seam Binding.

Believe - turquoise

The final version is in Tempting Turquoise. 

I love how easily the colors can be swapped out for a completely different look.  If you're part of my "Last Thursdays" card class tomorrow, you'll be able to select any one of these colors for your card, or try a new color on your own!  It will be fun to see which colors are the most popular!
