In My Garden | Color Combos with Crystal

Hi there friend!Today I am here with a super bright color combo for my first post of March. This card has a selective corner edge stamping in order to prevent the sentiment from being "washed out" by the floral stamping.

The colors selected for this card are from Stampin' Up and are as follows:

Tempting Turquoise,

Rose Red

Crushed Curry

and Pear Pizzaz

To make this card, I have pre-cut my Tempting Turquoise card panel to sit over my card base. Then my white cardstock was trimmed .25 inches smaller than the card panel, so it would layer nicely.

Using Rose Red, I stamped the sentiment then proceeded to stamp the largest flower from In My Garden to serve as my centering point. I could of easily drawn a line with a pencil to be sure I wouldn't go over that line.

With Pear Pizzaz, I stamped the leaves being sure to follow my "line". This would also serve as a guide not to go over.

Continuing on with the second largest of the flowers from In My Garden; I stamped those using Crushed Curry. I like to stamp the edges of the card panel as it gives the finished product a "printed" feel. To fill in some of the empty spaces in the card, smaller flowers and circles were stamped in the same coordinating colors.

Once everything is dried up, it is time for some twine. Attaching the twine to the back of the card using tape, and tying a bow on the front.

Once the bow was done and set, I added adhesive to the white card panel and placed it over the tempting turquoise card base.

The selective corner stamping really provided a nice base for the sentiment, and not over shadowing its beautiful message. I think this card would be great for a "hello" or "just because" card that any friend would love to receive.

We hope you liked this card! I will be using the In My Garden stamp set for another color combo post this month.

Thanks so much for joining me. Have a great rest of your week!
