Get Well leaves PP#136





Another very quick post using the same colours from The Paper Players. I want to post a 'Get Well' card off today to a Stampin' Up! Colleague who has had surgery today. This lovely lady remembers everyone's birthdays and special events , so it only seems right to cheer her up in return.

As I cleaned stamps, it occurred to me that French Foliage could look rather nice in these colours. I've used one colour for each leaf but the large one was tipped with Early Espresso on top of Lucky Limeade and the Regal Rose leaf has a touch of Lucky Limeade. The droplets are Pool Party, as is the greeting. I put the card face through the Big Shot in a Woodgrain Embossing Folder and mounted the square on Pool Party and Lucky Limeade.To complete this card a piece of Regal Rose ribbon trims the card and large wooden button.

Cheers,
Rachel

  2. These colors look great stamped as leaves, even more so with the wood grain texture, and the Pool Party "splatter" is perfect. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players!
