I’m trying to get a little ahead this week since tomorrow I’m going to run to Pittsburgh to see the “King and I’ with my daughter. She’s been waiting since the beginning of the school year for this. It’s one of her favorite musicals! I’ll just be gone overnight. I do love that I have someone who enjoys going to a variety of performances. We’re taking full advantage of the opportunity!!
For today’s card, I kind of CASE’d yesterday’s card.
Changing up the colors and some of the embellishments
and voila — new card!
I used the color combination from GDP081
which was Night of Navy, Whisper White plus one.
My “plus one” is Delightful Dijon.
After creating my background paper with the Oh So Succulent stamps,
I moved on to some small layering
starting with a Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate banner.
Then, I added a strip of Delightful Dijon followed by a partial strip of Basic Pearls.
Next is a piece of Floral Boutique washi.
Tip: I like to add the washi to a piece of cardstock first (usually Whisper White). The cardtsock gives it a little more body. And in the case of using Whisper White, it keeps the translucent areas of the design light.
Using the Succulent Framelits, I cut four flowers from Night of Navy and another four from Delightful Dijon.
After curling the petals gently with my Bone Folder, I adhered some of the layers with Multipurpose Glue and some with Dimensionals.
The flower was finished with a large Basic Pearl.
Before adding the flower to the card front, several loops of Gold Metallic Thread were adhered to
the back of the flower using Glue Dots.
To finish the card front, there are a trio of gold sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim.
Inside is a piece of Whisper White on which
has been stamped a couple of the Oh So Succulent flowers
in Night of Navy and Delightful Dijon.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Oh So Succulent card for GDP081.
