I chose colors to remind me that spring is here, on the calendar at least. The base of the card is Crisp Cantaloupe card stock. On a piece of Naturals White card stock I heat embossed the image from the Petal Parade stamp set twice using VersaMark and Pool Party embossing powder. It's such a pretty shade of blue but doesn't show up well on the photo. A strip of Summer Starfruit card stock was embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder, sponged around the edges with the same color ink and attached between the two blue images. The layer was added to the card front. The image from the You're Lovely stamp set was stamped on Naturals White card stock with Black StazOn ink. I colored it in with Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Summer Starfruit inks using a Blender Pen. The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was also heat embossed with Pool Party embossing powder. This was cut out with the smallest die from the Deco Labels Collection. I cut out a frame for the image from Crisp Cantaloupe card stock using the two smallest dies from the same collection. You just put one inside the other and cut it out with the Big Shot. The edges of the frame were sponged with Crisp Cantaloupe ink and attached using Glue Dots just on the sides. The colored image was added with Dimensionals. Rhinestones were the finishing touch on my card today. Well, that's my hint of spring for today. Hopefully the real thing is not too far off.
