Perfect Pennants for Pals Paper Arts

Today's card is brought to you by the letter "P"!  Perfect Pennants for Pals Paper Arts Challenge #197
I was excited to work with this sketch by Nicole Watt because it's so unique!  I knew the two jaunty-angled pieces would be tags using the Angled Tag Topper Punch.  I just needed a colour scheme.  I found this one on Pinterest again:



So I decided to go with a sea glass look and a beach theme.  Here's how it turned out:



  • The closest I could come to the colours on the Pinterest palette were Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise.  It definitely looks beachy!  I wish we had a lighter yellow to use.  Maybe one of the new In Colours???
  • The Sahara Sand background is created with the Hardwood stamp inked in Sahara Sand on cardstock of the same colour!  I was thinking beach fence or driftwood here.
                                 


  • The starfish and sand dollar come from the stamp set, By the Seashore.  The texture is just right for this card.  I used Coastal Cabana and Sahara Sand to stamp them and hand cut them.  The starfish is popped up on Dimensionals.
  • The tags are created with the Angled Tag Topper punch and I used So Saffron cardstock and Tempting Turquoise DSP from the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack.  The sentiment is from Perfect Pennants and is stamped in Tempting Turquoise.
  • The ribbon separating the Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana strips at the bottom is So Saffron 3/8" Taffeta which is actually retired, but was the only one that would do the job right!  So I gave it a come-back.
  • Candy dots in Sahara Sand and Tempting Turquoise added a little more interest to the overly-plain areas and gave the card design balance.
This is actually quite an easy card to complete, so feel free to give it a try!

Wow. I absolutely LOVE this card! The colors, the textures, the layout - EVERYTHING! It so makes me think of the beaches in Florida. Cara likes it too and asked if we could make it. I think I've got everything except By the Tide and the tag topper punch, so we'll probably do that sometime this week.
