How Color Fresh Can Inspire Your Card Making

It may still be the midst of February but I am dreaming about color and sunshine and everything warm, bright, happy and bold!

With that being said I decided to embark on a Color Fresh inspired card making session and am so excited to share this crafty happiness with you all.

What is even better is that all of these cards were created from this Color Fresh Boxed Card Set.

This set makes it ever so easy to customize fun and trendy cards for whatever the occasion might be.  When I created my cards I did not have any special occasion in mind, I basically wanted to create cards that would brighten someones day and make them feel special.  Powerful and positive sayings for the win!

I used elements from this fabulous Color Fresh bundle to then customize each one of my cards.  So many endless options to be had with a stash like this!  To be honest, I am not a card maker at heart but I had so much fun making each and every one of the cards. I loved experimenting and trying out different ideas and techniques.  This Color Fresh bundle is an absolute must have (as it is FILLED with all of my favourite Color Fresh products).  This kit is available right now in the Heidi Swapp shop! 🙂

I love each and every one of these cards for different reasons, it is hard to pick a favourite!

This is the first card I created.  I love this butterfly cut file.  I reduced the cut file size to fit the front of my card and then backed it with a coordinating Color Fresh paper from the paper pad.  I added on some stamping, stickers and then added some silver stitching.  Such a fun way to create a dimensional card with pretty texture.  I highly recommend cut files on cards.

This is the 2nd card I created.  I love the animal print card and decided to compliment it with a bright and bold saying.  I love the chipboard alphas that are part of Color Fresh and attaching them with some machine stitching again did just the trick.  I added a stamp and a sticker to finish it off and I love the end result.

I loved creating this card too!

Adding another cut file, this time a fun dimensional floral along with some stickers and foil flakes to the edges really made this one come to life.  This one just may be my top favourite. 😉

And last but not least are these two cards.

More fun cut files backed with patterns from the Color Fresh Paper Pad and accessorized with cuteness.  I love how fun the bold designs are from this collection to mix and match.  Each and every one of these cards pop with color and just make me happy!

I loved mixing and matching the hearts on this one.  Such a cute message too don’t you think?

I truly do not consider myself a ‘card maker’ ( as to be honest I often find card making hard…) BUT thankfully with this collection these all came together so easily and actually made me fall in love with card making after all.  These honestly were so much fun to design and put together, I kind of could not stop!  With that being said, I hope you are inspired to try making some cards yourself.  It is the best creative therapy and I hope you enjoyed my ideas.  Thanks Color Fresh!
