This Friends Never Fade card is Bright!
On a rainy day like we are experiencing here today, some colour is appreciated. And I am loving the colours in the new Brights Collection. Definitely a current favourite!
I designed this card around this patterned paper from the Greenhouse Garden designer series paper. This particular paper highlights Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz. So, I coloured the coordinating image from the Friends Never Fade stamp set in the same colours. After colouring the image with markers, I huffed on the image to re-moisten and stamped onto the Whisper White cardstock.
Next, I added the "thanks" image from Thank You Kindly in Real Red below the flower. I thought the curlicue on the greeting worked well with this flower.
All that was left is to embellish – I layered Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon over Real Red satin ribbon and added three Pumpkin Pie buttons with Real Red "thread".
This card is a little brighter than most but on a day like today stamping such bright colours was a great escape form the dreary weather. Enjoy!
