Do you ever get stuck for a card idea? Are you ever in a quandary about designing a card? It happens to all of us. There are lots of places out there to get inspiration. Demonstrators blog entries, like this one, Challenge sites like Global Design Project or Freshly Made Sketches. But one of the best inspirations is the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! Today I’m going to show you a note card I made using the Graceful Glass 6″ x 6″ Designer Vellum.

If you look on page 164 in the new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, you’ll see my inspiration. Aren’t they beautiful?

Design Notes for Graceful Glass Card:

I had so much fun coloring the vellum! I was just going to do one or two, using my Stampin’ Blends, but I ended up doing a whole sheet.

I used the full sized card that is on Smoky Slate card stock as my inspiration. I changed a few things! Note card instead of full size card for starters. I used different colors and didn’t add anything in the background. The thank you was replaced with a birthday sentiment. The birthday sentiment looked a little lonely so I added the bird. Using the bird gave me a chance to play with the Stained Glass Thinlits, always a fun time. All in all, making this card relieved any problems I might have had with inspiration!
