I am very excited to be here sharing my first card as a designer for the Muse Card Club. Have you played along with us yet?


Today’s card is actually ink-free! What? Yep, you heard me… no ink! I created the background using two different washi tape patterns…I lined up the chevrons to create a really nifty diamond pattern. I think the yellow, orange and teal colour combo is so bright and happy!


I die cut the sentiment and used the negative space…backing it with some teal card stock. Hopefully you can see it better in this photo.

Hello - detail
