Welcome to The Card Concept! Every two weeks we post our inspiration photo challenge and we hope you will join in with us and create a card for our challenge gallery. Feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles. We want you to have fun with our inspiration!
Our design team members will also be selecting a style and will explain how they were inspired by the challenge. So come and join us! We'd love you to try your hand at a brand new style of card making or feel free to work in your comfort zone. It is totally up to you!
The styles are explained HERE.
Now for the design team and their inspiration:
Becca's Inspiration: I was all about that black and white damask and incorporated it into my glitzy background. I also loved the bold red blooms and chose to work in the Classy & Elegant style to give this card a regal finish.
Karen's Inspiration: I was inspired by the wrapping paper, the gorgeous red roses and the bold black and red colour scheme for my Clean & Layered card.
Vicki's Inspiration - I was inspired by the colors in the bouquet and wanted touches of the red, black and white in my Classy & Elegant card.
Julie's Inspiration- I was inspired by the gorgeous red roses, the white shutters as well as the black and white scroll pattern for my Shabby Chic/ Mixed Media card!
Michelle's Inspiration: I was inspired by the deep red roses and the white, wooden slats, which reminded me of shutters in my Clean & Layered card.
Kim's Inspiration: I was inspired by the beautiful red roses with a wee touch of green for my Clean & Simple card. I wanted to give my card a clean look with the focus on the roses.
Nancy's Inspiration: It's all about romance this month, and wedding cards! I zoned in on those red roses and the shabby shutters for my Clean & Layered card.
Maureen's Inspiration: The colours and end of the school year inspired my Clean & Layered card.
Susan's Inspiration: The background along with the roses inspired me to make this Clean & (somewhat) Layered card.
Angel is taking a break- please stop by and say "hi"!
Mackie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the roses along with the red and black colors for my Clean & Layered card!
Julee's Inspiration: I took my inspiration for this Classy & Elegant with a hint of Shabby Chic card from the colors, texture and layout of the photo.
Veronica's Inspiration: I took my inspiration from the beautiful, bold rose, and the black and white patterns of the inspiration picture for my Clean & Layered/Classy & Elegant card.
