I used a new Altenew embossing folder/stencil combo called Vintage Lace to make my card using the colors...take look:
I used the stencils first, using shades of yellow ink (PFS) for the flowers and green (Gina K) for the leaves. The center of the small flower is blue.
Once my stenciling was complete, I lined up my panel inside the embossing folder and it embossed not only the flower, but the background too...kind of a 2 in 1 deal! I trimmed this layer down to a 3 3/4" x 5" piece and matted it with a blue layer, and then attached both to a top folding white card base. My "hugs" sentiment was cut from the same blue cs I matted my stenciled & embossed layer with, using Honey Bee's Bitty Buzzword Dies. I would love to tell you this was a quick card, but I did so many re-do's I lost count! Got ink outside the design on the 1st one, didn't line up the embossing folder to the stenciled part right on the 2nd try, smeared the ink using a baby wipe over the front before putting it into the embossing folder so the cardstock wouldn't crack on the 3rd try, and then was finally successful (mostly) with the 4th try. I guess perseverance really does pay off!!
Make sure you check out all the lovely inspiration using the BLUE & YELLOW color combination from the DT, and then play along right HERE. This challenge is open till the 25th at 5:00PM.
