Matching design idea for a set of two cards

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello, everyone! Today I'm going to share with you an idea of matching designs for a set of two cards. To make my cards matching I used the same cardstock colors and die sets with a similar floral designs. To strengthen the effect, I also used sentiments from the Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set for both cards.For the first card, I created a card panel with a lacy floral window using Leafy Border Die and a Spicy Yogurt cardstock.This card design can be used in both vertical and horizontal orientations. For the card base, I chose contrasting Forest Glades cardstock;, this one also supports a leaf theme.I like the variety of the Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set phrases and that includes great sentiments for COVID-times: warm, healing, and supporting ones.The second card is more green instead of the first but all ingredients are the same. Only one accent I added on a green card base is a few drops of Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray.I adhered both die-cuts in a way to create one branch that goes along the card. I'm in love with the tiny lacy design of this Hanging Garden Die set. I also enjoy how a few leaves go out of the card's borders.

Hope I inspired you to create some card sets with the similar designs and that you will share them with us!

Very pretty but I’m always wary of cards with a design which overlaps the edge: firstly you have to find a bigger envelope , ans secondly by the time the recipient gets it the fragile overlapping bits will be looking very dogeared.
