Hello readers!  This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today sharing another card that was inspired by this month’s beautiful mood board.  In case you missed it, on the first of every single month, we share a mood board that is designed to inspire YOU to create.  Mood boards (also commonly called “inspiration” boards) are a combination of colors, images, textures and patterns that can offer guidance or direction.  If you feel like you don’t know where to begin a project, try looking at a mood board and let the creative juices flow.

Here is the May mood board:

Here is the card I created using the Truly Inspire digital stamp set:

Card details: 

The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock.  For the first matted layer I cut a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of black cardstock and heat embossed it in black with a woodgrain stamp.  I love heat embossing black-on-black for my floral backgrounds.  It really allows the colors to pop.  I printed out the same two flowers from the Truly Inspire digital stamp set onto the same 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock.  I increased the flowers to 3″ x 3 1/4″.  I colored the flowers with Copic markers in the Y family.   I used Y000, Y02, Y04 and Y06.  I fussy cut eat flower and adhered it to the card using 3M foam adhesive.  I printed the sentiment from the Bunch of Love digital stamp set.  I used an oval punch to punch out the sentiment and then I adhered it over the flowers also using 3M foam adhesive.  Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for added sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed this bright card inspired by this month’s mood board palette.  We would love to see YOU create using this mood board as inspiration too!  Feel free to use similar colors in whatever brand of cardstock you have readily available.
