Happy weekend all! No snow flying here yet-yeah!! Here is the second card from Open House last weekend.
Not a color combo that I naturally go to, but I really like how it came out!! As I mentioned in my last Open House post, none of these cards were original creations. This one I found on LeeAnn Greff's blog HERE. Turns out she cased it too from Yvette HERE. Love all the sharing that goes on among fellow SU! Demonstrators!! I completely changed up the colors because I wanted to use the Tangerine Tango ribbon that was free during Sale-A-Bration. I was already using the Indigo on the previous card.
The card base is Tangerine Tango with a Chocolate Chip accent layer behind a background of Very Vanilla. I textured the upper part of the background with the new Honeycomb folder. I left the bottom untextured so we could stamp the saying there. Both the "Oh Hello" and "Thanks So Much" from the Oh, Hello set work wonderfully on this card.We sponged the edge of the Very Vanilla background with Chocolate Chip ink and also over the texture just a little to accent it. Above the saying we attached a strip of Chocolate Chip with Old Olive stripe Designer Series Paper. Around that we had knotted the Tangerine Tango ribbon. Next we stamped the Just Thinking stamp (page 21 Spring Mini) in Chocolate Chip on a square of Chocolate Chip. We cut it out using the coordinating Window Frame Framelit. Onto that we attached a Tangerine Tango 2-3/8" Scallop Circle. The Very Vanilla circle was cut with the Circles #2 Die in the Big Shot. I think it was the next to largest circle on there, it fits the scallop a little better than the 1-3/4" Circle Punch. Onto the circle we stamped the flowers which were inked with markers, Tangerine Tango for the flower, Old Olive for the stem. There are dimensionals between the Tangerine Scallop and the Chocolate Chip Window, and behind the Chocolate Chip Window.
Thanks for stopping by today! Sale-A-Bration ended yesterday, but there is still plenty of time to get these GREAT products from the Spring Mini!!
