Ombre Cards

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Hop is to make an ombre card.  Oh my word…LOVE the card I ended up making!

Here’s the details…

  • Petal Pink – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8, mask off the card leaving a 1 3/4 x 3 “window” open on card.  Sponge Petal Pink and Calypso Coral into “window” to achieve an ombre look.  Remove masks.  Stamp the largest peony in Grey Granite.  Layer onto Grey Granit 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Peony Garden DSP (grey chevron print) – 1 x 4 3/4, cut out scalloped border, add behind panel, add panel to card front
  • Petal Pink – stamp greeting using Grey Granite, punch out using 1 1/2″ circle punch, fold pieces of the white ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon pack, add behind greeting, add greeting to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Elegant Faceted Gems to finish off

And now for our latest collection…
