We all have special cards we need from time to time which sometimes require them to be elegant. So before I head to Chicago I have a challenge (actually two challenges). The first challenge is a color requirement of Melon Mambo, Sahara Sand, and Black. There is one stamp set with thinlit that I haven’t used; Floral Phrases. So I dug it out and thought, many are using it for Wedding cards. At this my point in life, I have far more Anniversaries that Wedding. Therefore, I came up with this Anniversary card. You will find it quick and simple. Yet, this card is truly timeless and elegant. The other challenge is open design. See the challenge links at the bottom.
Base: The beautiful and bright cheery Melon Mambo paper.
Focus: The intricate lace cutout in black of the die. I gave a background of neutral Sahara Sand to help the black stand out. The flower adds a pop of color which ties with the Melon Mambo paper. Remember you need to tie your colors together.
Stamp Set: Timeless Love
Color Combination: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Sahara Sand
Ink: Archival Black, Melon Mambo (around flower)
Paper: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Whisper White*
Note: I always use Whisper White behind the papers for my cards.
Embellishment: Wink of Stella
Accessories: Floral Phrases Thinlits, Big Shot, Trimmer, Die Brush set, 1/2″ punch, Botanical Framelits, Sponge Daubers (around flower)
