Inspiration & Coordination!

Isn't it great when you see something and you are inspired instantly. How about when that inspiration yields a well coordinated project?!

A few weeks ago I was walking through the Target dollar spot and found a two pack of gift bags. I knew instantly the DRS Designs image that I could use with one of the bags. Here is the outcome...

I used only one stamp on this project...the birthday candle burst (L451). I simply stamped the candles on white, colored and cut them out. I stamped just the sentiment onto my teal panel. (The nice thing about an unmounted piece of rubber is that you can cut a portion off which will make the stamp more versatile. Just be sure to make a straight cut so the pieces can fit back together to make your stamp whole again.)

The bottom portion of the card was made with strips of the colored cardstock to match the bag. This was a quick and fun project. I hope this inspires you to "get coordinated" with some of the gift bags you have just waiting to paired up with the perfect matching card!!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another DRS Designs challenge...this is an easy one that anyone can join in on! Don't forget about our Card Drive for Cards for Heroes that is going on now!!! Click HERE for more info.

See you soon...
