Avant Garden

ccmc440Are you having a good January?  Are you Sale-a-brating?  If you haven’t sale-a-brated yet, now is a great time!

I’m such a pushover for a great flower set and I just love the Avant Garden set in the the SAB brochure.  Mostly I love the ‘watercolor’ looking pieces…not so much the line one…have to play with that some.  When I was trying to decide on a set for the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge this week – Real Red, Kraft (or Crumb Cake) and Black.  Originally I was going to a ‘Valentine’ card but Connie did one and I went in a different direction.

Here’s the details –

  • Real Red – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded, round the bottom left corner
  • Kraft – okay this piece was on my desk and just worked – 4 1/4 x 4 1/2, cut the edge or the left side on angles (you can see from the picture it’s not straight across) add to card front
  • Basic Black – 1/4 x 5 1/2 add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp flower in Real Red twice – once ‘full strength’ and one stamped off, flower center – once “full strength” in Memento Black and once stamped off, stamp ‘splatter’ in Crumb Cake and greeting in Memento Black; round bottom left corner and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Take the backs off some Perfect White Accents and add to card front using Tombow Glue –  I love the clear look you get when you take the back off these!

  1. Love it! Really pretty and CAS. Love the way you’ve created the background too!

  2. Normally CAS cards are not my favorite and I have even more trouble creating them. THIS CARD THOUGH!!!! it’s packed with so many details that I love! The half circle background is so interesting too!

  3. Love, love, love the different shaped background layer you created with the two colors!! So eye catching with your simple floral focal point. Great job Mary!
