Spring is in the air, and the Chasing Dreams collection by Maggie Holmes is perfect for all of your spring projects. It’s Ashley, and I’m here today to share a set of cards that I created with Chasing Dreams. It’s easy to create beautiful cards, in no time with the gorgeous papers and embellishments that are included in the collection.
On my first card, I decided to contrast some black & white tones with bold pops of color. I used the large “hello” piece from the Ephemera Pack as the sentiment on my card. Then I chose several florals from the Ephemera Pack and Sticker sheet to create a layered border under the sentiment. I love to use machine stitching on my layouts, and it easily carries over to cards too. I added a small bit of machine stitching, through the Hello sentiment, to bring extra texture to the card.
For my second card, I kept the design very simple, because I wanted the focus to be on the beautiful Whimsy patterned paper. I used the sheet from the 6x6 Paper Pad, so I would have the smaller design, which works better with card sizes. This paper just screams spring! I wanted to keep things bright and fresh on this card, so I used the Cloud Thickers for the Spring Fling sentiment. I love the soft look of the white letters over the Whimsy patterned paper. I finished the card, with a few butterflies from the Puffy Stickers pack.
I hope you’ve been inspired to put a little spring in your step, with these fun card designs. They would be great for a friend or family member. And you could even translate these ideas to a layout. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the Chasing Dreams collection, make sure you visit your favorite online shops, where it’s now available!
