Let’s start with Happy Thoughts. Did you know that one positive thought, in the morning, can change your entire day. Why not share that with someone special? Today’s project is filled with a trio of Happy Thought cards for three different occasions.

It was exciting to see a new greeting set in the Jan-June Mini Catalog. Not only does the Happy Thought set contain great greetings for the outside of your cards, but those special little sentiments for the inside as well. Let’s start things off with the sweet thinking of you card.

The color palette for this and the other two cards in today’s cardmaking lesson is filled with Night of Navy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Soft Seafoam, Old Olive and Whisper White. Needless to say, you’ll find all those yummy colors in the Paper Blooms DSP. You can earn this 12″ x 12″ paper stack for FREE with a qualifying order.

To create the focal mat, I cut three 1″ x 4″ strips, keeping them in a continuous pattern.

Because I spritzed and crumpled the small bloom images, I was able to create a texture filled little embellishment.

Then I chose one of the coordinating greetings for the inside of the card. I can’t wait to send this card to someone on my list. Next up, a thank you card, because I always need those.

In this card, I’ll teach you a little tip on the Rococo Rose scalloped ribbon. I love that stuff.

I love the greeting on this one. The mix of the fonts is so on trend. Well, it’s January, so that means we need to restock our birthday card stash.
