Today's card uses Sketch #3 from Card Patterns. It was a great sketch and I thought it might be fun to play along. I've had the Melon Berry/Spring Moss/Kraft color scheme floating around my head for the past few days and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
I started by stamping that dashed grid (grandpa's jammies) from Background Basics: Retro in white on a piece of Kraft. Then I stamped the leafy vine border from Heather's new set Beyond Basic Borders onto a piece of white cardstock and adhered that to the Kraft (I trimmed off about 3/4"). I stamped the sentiment in Melon Berry ink and sponged the edges of the cardstock with Spring Moss. I knew I wanted to add a Melon Berry layer, but I don't have the cardstock, so I took my twill ribbon and found a close-ish Bazzill color. I think it's a pretty close match, but I'm not sure what the name of the color is (I'm sorry).
Once the Kraft was mounted to the orangey color, I wrapped white grosgrain ribbon around the two layers and went about creating my focal image. The Melon Berry/Spring Moss scheme screams floral to me so I searched my stamps and came up with this sweet little bouquet image from Stampendous. I stamped the image, punched it out, and sponged the edges with more Melon Berry. After mounting the stamped image to a scalloped circle of Spring Moss, I embellished with a smidge of glitter and a tiny bow of hemp cord.
I adhered the Kraft/orangey layer to a 5 1/2" square base made from Spring Moss. The floral image was then mounted to the Kraft layer using foam tape. The card still needed a little something, so I searched through my button collection and found this orangey button that matches perfectly. A little hemp chord and adhesive and there you have it!
Have a great day!
