Here's a little card I made lately. Look familiar? I used my own squash book as inspiration! The great thing about craft is that you can use the same idea over and over to get you going and then let it form a life of it's own as you go along. Also, big ups to Stampin' Up! for making gorgeous products that transition well between card-making and scrap-booking.
Quick tip - photograph your cards before you give them away! If you're ever in a rut and need ideas to get you going, you've got a file of pictures you're sure to love because you made them yourself!
By the way - loved using the Naturals Ivory card stock (the base of the card). It's got a nice gritty feeling to it without having to be textured.
