Monday Montage 195 - In Symmetry

Summer is speeding along and we are so enjoying the great things this season has to offer including home grown produce, sun tans, time spent with friends outdoors and weekend trips to cooler places.  Not so much fun are the fires - smoke, scorching heat, floods and COVID.  In two short weeks and the Olympics is over.  What an amazing and eventful experience for not only the athletes, but the spectators.  Many things we can take away as good lessons learned.

Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop.  Hang with us and you will see some really fun projects that may inspire you.

I chose to use In Symmetry.  I love the bold images and the ease in which to use it.  No special coloring which is great when you want to throw something together quickly, or maybe like me, my skills are not super great.

I saw this fun layout on Pinterest and I wanted to give it a try with this stamp set.  Although any stamp set would work.
Here is a side view.  I love the stepped layers in the back and the inside/outside look of this card.

When stamping this type of card it takes care of the inside as well.  There is enough space to write a lovely note and pop it off into the mail.  Although not real apparent, the ribbon and jewels add just the right amount of sparkle.
