Well, back to the routine after a long Easter weekend! We had a great time with my youngest daughter and her family. I got lots of grandbaby snuggles in to last me for a while. Today, I'm sharing a card I made for Pals Paper Arts Challenge #246, a colour challenge.
I knew I'd love doing this one, because those lovely pastels just kinda glow when paired with the neutral kraft.
Here's my take:
- I wanted to use the Bow Builder Punch, the tool that creates super cute little bows that look fantastic on greeting cards. It's so easy to make these bows. Just punch the elements out x2 and use glue dots to put them all together.
- I used the Kraft cardstock for the middle panel and I embossed it with the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder. It's a bit hard to see in the photograph, but it looks lovely and spring-like in real life. I backed it with a thin border of Pistachio Pudding cardstock.
- The stamp set is a Hostess set called Hello There. I love the script in all the sentiments. I stamped the backing in Pistachio Pudding and punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. The center is stamped separately in Baked Brown Sugar and punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. They are layered together and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
- The DSP in the flags are from 2 different sources. The Pistachio Pudding design comes from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack and it was cut into 1" x 4 1/2" strips and flags were cut into each end. The Crisp Cantaloupe design is from the 2013 - 15 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stacks.
A fairly simple card to make and good for any number of occasions! I hope you'll give it a try, and if you don't have the Bow Builder Punch, you've got to get it!
