Sentiment Only

And it’s Saturday again! And since we are doing favorites, this week is our favorite new incolor! Okay…this one was extremely tough because to be honest…these are NOT my kind of colors.

Here’s the details…

  • Calypso Coral – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Blushing Bride – 3 3/4 x 5, cut out the flower/petal die from the Tasteful Backgrounds dies in the upper left and lower right corners
  • Follow Your Art DSP – (abstract print) – 3 58 x 4 7/8, add behind the Blushing Bride panel using dimensionals
  • Pacific Point – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add behind panel, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Pacific Point, cut out using Layering Oval die, layer onto matching Calypso Coral scallop oval
  • Pacific point – take 5/8 strip, using bone folder and rub strip across bone folder until fiber breaks down and can separate into two strips, add behind oval then add to card front using dimensionals
