I got some new stash to play with and I made a card for my daughter to celebrate the end of her exams … because yes we got there!
I started by stamping the Tropical Hideaway background in Parakeet Party (I love this colour … it’s so fresh!) then some of the leaves from Splendid Thoughts in both the Parakeet and Tahitian Tide. I decided the card needed a pop of pink then so die cut the bowl shape twice from Polished Pink.
Then I grabbed the Amazing Phrasing stamps that are from Saleabration and stamped the Woo Hoo! and the You Did It! in Orchid Oasis … yes using lots of the In Colours on this card!
I layered them all up and added some dimension with foam under one of the sets of leaves and the bowl shape piece. I then added some gems for bling.
I then wrote inside the card and it got messy and smudgy and I ran out of space so I ended up cutting the card front off… adding a panel of the Polished Pink and more foam and adding it to a 6×6 card.
This time my inside writing went fine and job was a good’un!
So you can see both the original and the final card… what do you think? I think the extra pop of pink on the final piece is actually better and helps frame it all … so a happy accident!
