Saturday Creations: pinterest inspiration

Hi peeps!

I'm back with another Saturday Creation for Precious Remembrance.  I'm showcasing our positive thoughts set.

Do you all pinterest?  (it's not just a website now, it's a verb... or it should be, with all the time I spend there!)  Sometimes, all I need to get the inspiration flowing is a beautiful print that I can translate into a card.

From this print, I created the layout of my card, and found the orange/blue color scheme.  I also love how the orange panel contained a large sentiment, while a smaller one was printed onto the blue flag beneath.  I thought it would be fun to take two different sentiments from the positive thoughts set and re-create that look:

I used a cream-colored cardstock for my base and my flowers, embossed my larger sentiment onto the orange strip, and the smaller sentiment onto the blue flag.  This would be the perfect card to give someone who was going through a hard time.  

Hope you like it!  


  1. I love those rolled flowers with the pearls in the middle! And yes, I definitely pinterest!

  2. Oh, I definitely LIKE it Elena. Beautiful work.

  3. Love it! Great inspiration piece. My favorite time to Pinterest (yes, it is a verb) is at night when my husband is watching something I don't want to watch. We can still be together, but I can look at pretty things on my phone and he can watch Swamp People!

  4. I love Pinterest! I saw this photo pinned and thought it would make a great inspiration piece! Great card :)

  5. Just so pretty and CAS. Love the colors!

  6. So fresh and CAS, but still "Elena":)
