I was thrilled to see my favorite color Summer Starfruit represented in this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge:
What a delightful color combination inspired directly from the Color Coach, one of my favorite go-to tools! As you can see, I took the challenge literally...
The flowers were stamped with the Button Buddies stamp set and punched out using my 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch. The scallop circle is the perfect size for these flowers, making it once again, you guessed it...easy peasy! I wanted to add something subtle to the background and thought immediately of the Delicate Designs Embossing folders and the Large Scallop Edgelits, both of which are new to the catalog this year.
To create the effect shown here I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4" (just 1/4" smaller than the card base). I then took that piece of cardstock and lined the bottom edge of it up with the bottom edge of Delicate Designs Embossing folder and ran both through the Big Shot. Once the cardstock was embossed, I lined the Large Scallop Edgelit up with the embossed scallop and used two small Post-It's to hold the Edgelit in place while I ran it through the Big Shot and adhered the result to my card base. Two simple steps to create a wonderful accent on a card!
I adhered the two outside flowers directly to the card with SNAIL but popped the center flower up with a Dimensional for a bit of added impact. The sentiment stamped in Real Red balances out the Real Red flower on the opposite side of the card.
This card could easily be re-created in a variety of colors and sentiments so pick your favorites and create it today!
