Initially, I thought the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches was difficult, but after the first card, the second was easy. I decided to use the colour challenge from ColourQ so that I expanded my colour choice for a change. I always feel more comfortable with only three colours, but after all, these three shades of pink do go beautifully together, so it wasn't too tricky.
I chose Primrose Petals for my base and added a NEW dry embossed border, one of the two in the Needlepoint Border folder (page 5) available in the 25th Anniversary Catalogue. Next, with the Big Shot, I cut the wider tag from the Two Tags die in Very Vanilla card. There is a crease just above the greeting, so I could have folded the tag and made a little pocket and these two dies are able to be used not only as tags, but as gift holders for small gifts. Ask me, I'm happy to show you how.
|Summer Silhouette/ Daydream Medallions|
I twice-stamped the lovely leaves from Summer Silhouettes, without re-inking between stamping, which gave two shades to the Early Espresso. This sweet little greeting is from a lovely little set of three stamps called Made For You. I really like this font, so fresh and young.
Next I stamped some Pink Pirouette card with Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple using the Daydream Medallions stamps, before using Floral Frames Framelit die to cut matching floral shapes, which I layered up after hand turning the petals, and finished off with the NEW Large Rhinestone.
Lastly, a piece of Raspberry Ripple ribbon and an Antique Brad were the finishing touches.
Cheerio for now,
