Kinda Eclectic

SP15SatHopWelcome

Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  This month the design team is going to be saying good-bye to the incolors that will be retiring with this catalog.  Each week we will feature a different color.  The third color up…Mossy Meadow.

SatHopMossy

I have to say this ended up being one of those cards I was just tickled with when it was done.  I’ve been trying to do ‘monochromatic’ themes (although that is not part of the challenge) for the farewell to incolor cards and this one just so is me!

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – TWO strips 1 x 5 1/2, run through the Softly Falling embossing solder and add to each side of card front
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, stamp greeting using Versamark and gold emboss, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Mossy Meadow print (Botanical Garden dsp – 4 x 1/2, add to card front
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Stamp leaf image 3 times using Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla, cut out and add to card front
  • Add Basic Gold Metal Button using Glue Dots
  • Tie Bow in Ivory Thick Twine – add to button to finish off
  • off.
