I wanted a break from all the Christmas cards that I've been creating (and writing) and so I turned to the Designer Paper that was the least like Christmas paper, the beautiful Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series paper. I mixed that up with a piece of complimentary polka dot Pistachio Pudding paper from the 2013-15 In-Colours Designer Series stack. The results were as great as I had hoped.
I began with a base of Naturals White followed by a layer of Garden Green. I topped that with the two Designer papers. Then I took a base of Calypso Coral and added a stamped piece of Whisper White. I coloured the images with my Stampin' Markers and sponged the sky and grass. Then I added the layered piece to the card using Dimensionals.
I stamped two flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set onto Whisper White using Crushed Cantaloupe ink and one using Calypso Coral ink. Then I cut them out with the matching punch and glued them onto the layered piece using Tombo. I added my sentiment centred across the flowers using Dimensionals. It, too, was from the Moon Lake stamp set and I used Garden Green ink and then added a mat of Garden Green as well.
My final touch was a bow tied with a combination of Crushed Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding Thick Baker's Twine, attached with two glue dots.
