I have a board on Pinterest filled with gorgeous cards that I love to look through even though I rarely actually make a card. I enjoy all the different styles and designs, so I wanted to find a way to use them for inspiration. Today, I'm going to show you how I took inspiration from three favorite cards to create scrapbook layouts!
My first inspiration comes from this lovely card by Maggie Holmes.
The banner and circle grounding the other elements were repeated on my layout under the photo. I also used an arrow cut file which was inspired by the arrow under the heart on Maggie's card. And by coincidence, this layout was created using the beautiful Maggie Holmes collection!
My next layout was inspired by this fun card by Maile Belles.
I love the way the bottom third is covered by patterned paper with the pinked circle tucked underneath. On my layout, I used a pinked circle underneath my photo and covered the bottom of my layout with the yellow starburst paper. This layout was created with the DIY Shop collection.
My last layout was inspired by this bright and colorful card by Kelly Rasmussen
The banner and the grid paper with a notebook punched edge are my favorite parts of this card. I used these same elements on my layout using products from Fourteen, DIY Shop, Party Day and Maggie Holmes collections.
This was my first time using cards as inspiration and I really enjoyed the process! It was fun to take a smaller canvas and turn it into something totally different. Next time you're looking for ideas, I hope you'll give cards a try!
