Card Ideas using the Fine Art Floral Suite!
A lot of times I hear from others they find it hard to come up with card ideas. They love the products but once they have them, they just don’t know what to do or where to start.
With this in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you the process I use to come up with card ideas when using a suite.
So here is the process:
- Select a suite that you want to use.
- If you don’t have a full suite then select a paper pack, a ribbon spool that would coordinate, as well as some gems or rhinestones and a stamp set!
- Pick a sheet from the paper pack you want to use
- Look for color combinations from the patterned paper you selected in step #2
- Pull cardstock in the colors you selected for your color combo
- Think of what you will use as your focal point
- In my cards you will see that I wanted to highlight the stamped images as I wanted to showcase some stamping techniques, but this can be die cuts, stickers, etc.
- Look for sketches that will fit best your focal point
- Have fun putting together your cards!
You can see how easy this process is! believe me, try it out and let me know what you think.. I promise you that if you ever struggled coming up with card ideas this process will help a ton!

The colors in these cards would not have been my typical pick however, because I follow the process above I always end up with so many color combination ideas to try out every single time!
