When things get crazy it always helps me to have a creative outlet. I think the theme of my projects this last weeks speaks volumes. Good thing I have a way to share that really brings me joy as well as peace. Just yummy.
This is my kind of card. Lots of layers, a bit of interest, a touch of water color and a lovely sentiment. Not to mention wonderful designer series paper as a background. This one has to be a workshop project for sure. So great!
The layers were simple and all of the corners rounded. I even found tag framelits that would also carry the rounded corner. The card base was cut normally measuring 4 1/4 x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″. There is an additional score to fold the front back on itself perfectly in half. That half folded front became the base for the decorative front to be place. A little different, but not too much.
The water color pencils don’t come in all of the classic ink colors just yet, but the colors I chose match really well. I used bermuda bay, daffodil delight, pacific point and calypso coral. It worked out fantastic. Light coloring and even lighter water coloring with the aqua painter.
To complete it I wrapped some of this years Sale-a-bration free ribbon. Metallic ribbon often is a bit stiff and not fun to work with. Not this, I love how soft and pliable it is. I would love it if this became a regular product carried in the annual catalog. Fingers crossed!
Truly a wonderful project today. I couldn’t be more pleased, hope you enjoyed and better yet, try one out for yourself!
Have a creative day!
