Here's the set we are using this week...
Today we're getting a bit more whimsical with our setting...here's today's card...
and a bit closer look...
We began our creation with that fresh new look of Lemon Lolly cardstock--I think we'll be using quite a bit of the color especially during the summer months. We embossed the card front with the crosshatch design (Basics 3D embossing folders--Online Exclusive product)...a perfect texture for this scene.
The multi-hued designer paper is from the Bright & Beautiful set. These papers include many of our new colors in a lovely array of useful designs...I think we'll be seeing these quite a bit this season.
By stamping the floor covering on the Parakeet Party cardstock we eliminated coloring it! Doing the same trick with the rocking chair we have quickly created 2 main focal points in short order.
The basket of greenery was colored with the Lemon Lolly Blends and the Lemon Lime Twist Blends (a Returning color).
Using the "It's always a good day..." as the front greeting you can complete the thought any way the fits the occasion on the inside.
We've added a bit f shine with the Gold Foil borders and that added zing with the fresh new 23-25 In Color dots. Now it's hard to believe that these dots on this card are actually represending the Wild Wheat color ---they are really quite a lovely accent.
Stop back by Thursday and see our next card with this set.
