This simple card layout with options and the Sweet Citrus Bundle is so great to add tons of versatility to your card making. I shared more than 5 different designs you’ll want to see in the video!!

Here’s how some of my participants described them on my live the other day!

  • Wow! A lot of great ideas, Jo. Thank you! ❤
  • I really like these colours, really Springy & cheery.
  • Great cards, Jo-Anne! Thanks for sharing all of them and so many tips along the way!!

What We Made in Our Facebook Live

Our live was all about taking a layout and showing you different ideas, different ways to interpret it. You can see 7 of them (yup two weren’t even the Sweet Citrus bundle!) in my edited Facebook Live video down below.

I wasn’t too sure about the colours the VIPeeps selected for me to work with – after they picked the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Bundle! Citrus and blues and teals wasn’t quite what I had in mind!

But this is where we ended up.

I wanted to showcase this Sweet Citrus Bundle for a few reasons.

  1. I hadn’t shown it to you yet, and
  2. it’s great for some bright spring-y greetings which can easily turn into summer and fall cards. And who wouldn’t also love something bright and energetic in the depths of winter? Plus
  3. although it isn’t retiring and will be in the next catalogue
  4. you can still get the bundle at 10% off (but only until May 1st or while supplies last)

Did you see the tips I gave you in the video for stamping and cutting the dies?

Time to Play!

Now you can use just about anything you have on hand to create your cards. Just grab some white or vanilla cardstock and some pretty colours, then take a look through your stamps and dies.

Flowers…gnomes…birds…balloons…you’re only limited by your imagination!

Cuttin’ It Up!
