Happy New Year to you! May 2016 bring you happiness, good health and lots of crafting time! Are you ready to get your fingers inky? Here we go!
My inspiration for this card came from Pinterest and a card made by Bekka in the UK (here).
I used the new Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper for the background and cut a 2.5″ slit in from the edge, then folded it open to reveal the Old Olive card stock beneath it. The inside of the card says “Only all of the time!” and I was thinking of my friend Terry who moved to the Oregon coast.
I used the Botanical Builder Framelits to create the rest of the card, sponging where needed.
I have to say that the Mint Macaron color that is used on the Designer Series Paper is not one that I would have ever thought to use with the rest of the colors (Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Black), but it works and I like it. Mint Macaron one of Stampin’ Up!’s “In Colors” and is the one that I like the least, but it is slowly growing on me.
