Taylored Expressions: Inspired by Pinterest

Taylored Expressions maintains a fabulous array of Pinterest Boards sorted by product and some by theme.  It's a fabulous source of inspiration and the Baker's Dozen design team is tasked with showing you how we were inspired by a card.  I fell in love with Jen's card found here.

I love the her color scheme!  And I love the texture and patterns.  It's all perfect for a very warm and thoughtful card.  I have to admit that I already knew what product that I wanted to use before I started browsing Pinterest - the Up, Up and Away Cutting Plate.  I had envisioned bright, almost neon, party colors - but I was so inspired by Jen's card that I went with the warm and rustic look.

I was also inspired by her touch of texture and by the hint of patterns - not to mention the blue die cut word and the twine bow!!

I love this cutting plate - it was a must-have for me (even before I was on the design team!)  The balloons, strings and frame are one die cut which makes it really easy to work with. Then there are extra balloon dies you can use to change the colors of the balloons.
