Welcome to The Card Concept! Every two weeks we post our inspiration photo challenge and hope that you will join us by creating 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 designers 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's inspiration:
Tangii's Inspiration: I was inspired by those fabulous
colors for my Mixed Media card.
Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by all of the green as
well as the pieced wooden shamrock to create
a Clean and Layered/Mixed Media card.
Michele K. Henderson
Michele's Inspiration: I was really inspired by the color and
cut shapes of the wooden pieces that formed a shamrock
when assembled for my Freestyle Collage card.
Kim's Inspiration: The rustic feel of the inspiration photo
and colors on the shamrock inspired my
vintage style Shabby Chic card!
Nancy's Inspiration: I see a shamrock that's the
star of the show! I decided to create a
Classy and Elegant layered card!
Maureen's Inspiration: My Shabby Chic card was inspired
by the shamrock, colours, and wood background.
Susan's Inspiration: My Clean and Simple card was
inspired by the wood and, of course, that shamrock.
Marcie's Inspiration: My Clean and Layered card
combines with a bit of mixed media and was
inspired by the St. Patrick's Day vibe of the
Angel's taking a break for this challenge-
please stop by her blog to say "hi"!
Mackie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the colors and
design of the shamrock to create my Mixed Media style card!
Pam's inspiration: I was inspired by the shamrock,
and colors but especially the distressed door creating
the setting for this Clean and Simple card.
