Since I still had Pool Party, Tangerine Tango and Summer Starfruit sitting on my desk, I decided to continue this colour theme with the Madison Avenue stamp set. I added Lucky Limeade as well as I wanted a green for my leaves.
Using the Top Note die for the Big Shot, I cut a piece from Pool Party card stock and used it as the center of my card. Three 1" stripes of card stock in Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango and Summer Starfruit were embossed with the Vine Street embossing folder and adhered to the Top Note in varying lengths. I found these strips of paper to move around alot in the folder so I used a post it note to hold them in place.
I stamped the leaves from the Madison Avenue stamp set onto Whisper White card stock with Lucky Limeade ink and punched the image out with the 2-1/2" Circle punch making sure that the leaves were close to the bottom. I also stamped the flower in Pool Party ink and punched it out with the 1" Circle punch. Again with the Pool Party ink, I stamped a greeting from the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set and punched it out the Ticket Duo Builder punch.
I adhered the pieces to the Top Note using Dimensionals behind the punched pieces and added a Whisper White card behind the Top Note to finish.
