Today’s card is made with some pretty crazy colors (coral, aqua, lime) that I like separately but need to be put together as part of the Reverse Confetti color challenge. I struggled for quite a while trying to find a way for these colors to meld together. In fact I ended up with two separate cards – one a thank you and this one…which will be sent to some extended family who recently lost a loved one.
I started off with Stampin’ Up! calypso coral, coastal cabana and lucky limeade (retired) and used the Reverse Confetti doin’ the wave die to create my wavy sidepiece. Using the RC love note die and the coastal cabana patterned paper I made the background for my circle. I used the SU! Love and Sympathy stamp set and the coral and limeade markers to stamp the image. I added a little twine and some paper flowers I made with RC petal n posies dies and I was done.
I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday sketch for this layout. I compared the two cards (you won't see the other one - i really don't like it!) side by side and I was pleased with this one. Just the right amount of color all around.
Supplies: CS: PTI white, SU! calypso coral, coastal cabana, lucky limeade (retired), in color DSP and scraps. Ink: Memento, calypso coral and lucky limeade markers. Dies: Reverse Confetti circles and scallops, doin’ the wave, love note, petals n posies. Stamps: SU! love and sympathy and RC lots to say. Embellies: SU! coastal cabana twine and a brad from my stash.
