I recently showed this card at a workshop and one guest was thrilled with the colour combo stating they never would have put blue and green together.
The new In-Colour Pool Party is such a fantastic blue and it pairs so nice with Wild Wasabi. This card feels so earthy, especially with the tree image.
The tree (from the set Easy Events) was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On ink and coloured using Classic Ink pads Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, and Melon Mambo. I used the Blender Pen to pick up the colour from the ink pad and coloured directly onto the cardstock. Then add a bit of Two-Way Glue pen around the tree edges and add Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The entire image was then punched out using the 2 1/2″ Circle punch.
The corners of the Wild Wasabi cardstock were punched using the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack and that cute little Melon Mambo heart…. also done using the ‘cloverleaf’ punch from the same punch pack.
Do you like the added touch of the White Baker’s Twine and the 1 1/4″ Wild Wasabi Striped Grosgrain ribbon…they just finish the card off perfectly. But wait… what about the envelope? Simply stamp your main card image on your envelope in one of your main colours and you now have a matching set.
This idea came straight from Stampin’ Up! As a demonstrator I receive many perks from Stampin’ Up! and when I attended Convention this year one of those perks was a Workshop in a Bag. This made for quick and easy prep for my workshop. Who wouldn’t love that!
