Welcome to The Card Concept! Every two weeks we post our inspiration photo challenge and hope that you will join us and create a card for our challenge gallery.
Please feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles. We want you to have fun with our inspiration!
Our design team members will also be selecting a style (or combination of styles) and will explain how they were inspired by the challenge. So come and join us! We'd love you to try your hand at a brand new style of card making or feel free to work in your comfort zone. It is totally up to you!
The styles are explained HERE.
Now for the design team and their inspiration:
Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the bright spring colors
as well as the beautiful flowers on those scrumptious
cupcakes for my Mixed Media card!
Kim's Inspiration: I loved all the sweet treats and pretty colors,
pink and purple. I used yummy doughnuts instead of cupcakes
in a photo frame. I kept my card clean and simple,
love all the white space.
Michele's Inspiration: I love the vivid colors and shapes
of the flowers, and the subtle layers of color, and used
them in my Clean and Layered card.
Robin's Inspiration: The circles in the photo and the swirls
on the cupcakes are what drew me into the picture, and
helped me create this Clean and Layered card.
Nancy's Inspiration: The photo had me at pink!
And frosted flowers... andthe cake!
Clean and Layered, my favorite style card!
Maureen's Inspiration: My Clean and Layered look is
inspired by the bright, cheerful colours!
Susan's Inspiration: I was inspired by the colors
and the little flowers on the cupcakes
for my Clean and Simple card.
Angel's Inspiration: I was inspired by the sweet cupcakes,
the bright colors and the birthday theme for
my Clean and Layered card!
Mackie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the colors and
the birthday theme for my Clean and Graphic card.
