Happy Thursday, friends! Laurie here today to share with you a couple of cards I created using the new Make Your Mark Collection! I have to say that these two cards were so much fun to make! There is something special about this collection, and seeing all of the papers and coordinating embellishments laid out together made this cardmaker's heart go pitter patter!
This first card was inspired by those gorgeous flowers from the Make Your Mark Paper Pieces set! I then spied the stunning pink polka dotted paper (complete with gold foil accents) from the Daily Details sheet and knew it would be the perfect backdrop for the flowers.
I plan on giving this to my daughter for her 21st birthday, so I customized it by adding some gold die cut numbers on top of the flowers. To add a bit more color, I cut a couple of border strips (from the Borders paper) as well as some ribbon and tucked them behind the polka dot paper. I adhered all of this on top of a white cardstock panel that I had previously spattered with gold paint.
The focal image is from the Make Your Mark Gift Tags set. Because I can't seem to help myself when it comes to adding embellishments (and because they are so very pretty!!), I added a Designer Clip on top of the Gift Tag. :-)

One of the things that I love so much about this collection, is the wide variety of color and patterns included on the papers! The stunning painted look makes for such effortless creating! I didn't want to cover up too much of this lovely pattern, so I layered all of my pieces in a cluster. On top of the patterned paper (I used one of the papers from the 6 x 8 Paper Pad), I stitched on a piece of a gold striped clear cut (from the 6 x 8 Clear Cuts Pad).
A piece of coordinating paper, two Gift Tags, and a Paper Piece were all layered on top of the Clear Cut paper. For embellishment, I added an arrow sticker (from the Fundamentals sheet), an Epoxy Sticker, and a couple of Pickle Juice Puffy Stars Stickers.
