Happy Wednesday all. Today I have a card based on two challenges: Dynamic Duos Challenge #2 and Freshly Made Sketches #35. I really like these colors together but had a hard time figuring out how to use them on the card. I'm happy with the result.
My card base is Whisper White card stock. A piece of So Saffron card stock was matted with Whisper White card stock and attached to the Just Add Cake designer paper. Pool Party
Baker's Twine was wrapped around this layer three times. I added a Pool Party brad over the baker's twine; I used a piece of baker's twine to gather the center before I put the brad on. This layer was then adhered to the card front. Pieces of Pool Party and So Saffron card stock were run through the Big Shot with
the Square Lattice embossing folder. I layered them on a piece of Whisper White card stock and added it to the card front. The sentiment from the Perfect Punches stamp set was heat embossed with VersaMark, Pool Party ink and clear embossing powder. I cut this out with paper snips close to the dotted edge. I then punched a piece of Pool Party card stock with the Curly Label Punch and use it to mat the sentiment. This was popped up on the card with dimensionals. The little flowers were punched out of Pool Party and So Saffron card stock with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and attached to the sentiment with glue dots. Pearls were added to the center of each flower. This is a lovely color combo - gives the card a soft look. I'm so glad you stopped by. Please come again. Hope you're having a fun and creative week.
