JAI #544 | Just Add 'L'

Hello there stamping friends. I hope that you are having a fantastic week and a fabulous Friday. Because it's Friday, that means that is time for another Just Add Ink challenge - Just Add Ink #544 | Just Add 'L'.

This is one of our fun letter challenges that seem to be quite popular. I love to use these letter challenges to embark on a new to me technique or a fancy fold that I've not tried before. This challenge I've made a Lever card. If you've not seen a lever Card before the middle panel of the card front 'levers' through the window portion of the card. For a tutorial on how to make a Lever Card, I used this one HERE.

The inspiration for my card today came from one that fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Teneale Williams made a few weeks ago. I loved her mix of using the True Love DSP with Crumb Cake Cardstock and also the addition of the layered floweres from the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies.

I love the mix of the two different DSP patterns on the front. Don't be afraid to mix patterns or prints. The Polka Dots and the Stripes both in Black and White work so well together and make for a fun look. I was going to sponge the Polka Dot panel with Blushing Bride Ink but felt that it didn't look right and the pop of colour from the die cut flowers was all the colour that I needed against the neutrals.

When the card is fully open there is some DSP layering and some embellishment with the Brushstrokes Dies on the greeting panel. Can't have a blank card on the inside!

The colours used on the flowers are, from darkest to lightest, Merry Merlot, Rococo Rose and Blushing Bride. For the leaves I used Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz.

 The white panel on the inside leaves more than enough room to write a message to the recipient. I've finished off the card with some basic ribbon, trim and embellishments for a beautiful classic look.

I do hope that I've given you some inspiration for this week's letter theme. Please head on over to the Just Add Ink Blog to see all the variety in the JAI Design Teams Projects and then come and join in the fun of this week's Just Add 'L' challenge. Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
