I love it when I 'm surprised by the outcome of my card designing.
Honestly I wasn't sure about the color combo and trying to find just the right mix of contrast and balance was a challenge. Having the designer paper in just the right colors made a huge jumping off point and I knew I wanted to focus on the CRisp Cantaloupe instead of the other colors.
Phew, I think I pulled it off! LOL
Here's a run down on the elements I used..
1. Create a whisper white card base.
2. Cut 2 DSP panels 5 1/4" x 2"
Smokey Slate from the Eastern Elegance DSP
Cantaloupe from the Birthday Basics DSP
Both DSP paper are retiring.
3. Cut a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square Whisper white panel and stamp the
Delicate Doilies (retired and now sold out this week..arghhhh!)
in Crisp Cantaloupe ink.
You could substitute the HAPPY DAY stamp set with a Doily look instead.
4. Apply the white layer to a Early Espresso layer cut 3" x 2".
5. Stamp the HELLO banner from the Perfect Pennants stamp set in
Early Espresso ink and die cut the shape with the matching framelits and
a magnetic platform. Apply to the white panel.
6. Wrap a piece of Summer Starfruit satin ribbon around the panel.
7. Punch a Crisp Cantaloupe Scalloped Tag Topper and center over
the DSP panels on the side.
8. Pop up the Espresso and White panel with dimensionals and center
in the middle of the card.
9. The Elegant Butterfly has 3 layers.
Punch a Early Expresso layer, a Smokey Slate DSP layer
and a Bitty Butterfly punched with Silver Glimmer paper and inked with
a Summer Starfruit and a sponge dauber. Apply to ribbon with
mini Glue Dots.
10. Add a vintage feel with the feminine touch of Basic Pearls to the ribbon.
I enjoyed showing you todays project and thinking about other combinations to use with this sketch. What colors would you choose? Any requests?
