I am playing along with the Card Concept today. I really enjoy how they focus on the different styles of cards. Today, I created a Clean and Layered card. I always love lots of layers. The color palette in the inspiration photo is gorgeous.
My base card is Crumb Cake (5 1/2 x 4 1/4). I used my stitched rectangle dies to cut the next two layers. Early Expresso and a piece of weathered wood paper was used. I found the wood paper in my stash.
I used my Aqua Painter and used Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Pink Pirouette inks and painter a strip of color on watercolor paper. I used the In Bloom -Maggie's Roses Cutaway Die and cut the base of the flowers from my watercolored pieces (one of each color). Then I used the top layer of the rose die and cut three Crumb Cake pieces. I adhered them with glue. I really love the dimension it creates!
I cut three pairs of leaves with the dies from Pear Pizazz. I stamped the banner and sentiment on Crumb Cake using Sahara Sand ink. I liked the contrast of the color. Two pearls were added on the banner. This card is for my son and my bonus daughter for their anniversary. She loves pearls, so I had to have a few on the card.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love to hear from you. Please leave a comment! It makes my day!
Have a fantastic day!
