One Idea, Three Cards #1

1-3-memories-and-more-color-theory-1Today I'm beginning a feature that you'll see here on the blog called One Idea, Three Cards.  In response to  a questionaire that I sent to my mailing list, many responded that they had difficulty coming up with ideas.  It's my hope that you can see what helps me in creating and you'll try designing different cards using the same idea from a card you've created previously.  Let's take a look at the video tutorial below...

See this One Idea, Three Cards #1 Video on You Tube.

1-3-birthday-delivery-1Here's another card using the same idea (sketch or card layout).  Can you see the common elements?

1-3-happy-birthday-thinlit-card-1Here's another cardmaking sample with the same idea. The focal point is the thinlit but the general assembly concept is the same.  You can see that even though all three cards have a different look, these all originated from the same idea. Really helps when you're trying to come up with an idea for a card! 

Hope you enjoyed see these three handmade cards from one idea!
