I have been having so much fun with the Reason to Smile stamp set. I cannot believe that it is only $5 with a $50 order placed with me in July.
I started with a piece of Whisper White cut to 3 3/4 x 5 and masked the strip in the center with a piece of scrap paper. I stamped the flower image in Elegant Eggplant randomly on both sides of the maks and added the flower centers with Baja Breeze and Summer Starfruit. I found my color combo on the Color Coach. I wasn't too sure of it at first but after completing my card, I am in love!!!
I drew straight lines along the mask with my Elegant Eggplant Marker and removed the mask. I then attempted to stamp my greeting between the lines. However, I accidentally dropped my stamp and it made a mess of the greeting so I cut a strip of Whisper White card stock to 1 1/4 x 5, stamped my greeting on it and layered in on the card over my messed up greeting.
It needed something so I added some piercing with my NEW Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack. I then added an Elegant Eggplant Button from the Regals Designer Buttons and a small knot of Summer Starftuit 3/8 Stitched Satin Ribbon. My mistake actually made my card better!!! LOL
