I am trying to use up all my Parisian Breeze DP; I will miss it so much.....I just love Baja Breeze, and I will be sad to see these In Colors retire. You would think I would be hoarding it, but I want to USE it! I had this card base sitting on my desk for weeks....I cannot even remember from whose blog I got the idea (if you know, let me know so I can credit them!). It is a little tri-fold card, with a window punched out (using square punches) at the top of each panel:
Each window panel has a flower adhered to it in a different position. Here is a top view of it, so you can see how it is folded:
and the inside:
I shabbied up the flower from Best Wishes and More by stamping it Confetti White, then overstamping it with Sanded in Creamy Caramel. Then I just daubered and sponged the heck out of everything! Sentiment is from Oval All. I dyed Bashful Blue Taffeta ribbon by rubbing it over the top of my Baja Breeze ink pad (I helped it along by rubbing it with the top of a clothespin--so I didn't get my fingers so inky!). A button from the Latte line was tied over top. Really a simple, shabby little card!
Next, I went CAS, and used an altered version of the CAS Fall to Layout #41, which everyone seems to love:
I made four of these very quickly; two I made into thank you cards, the other two I left blank and will add a sentiment when necessary. Flower is from Eastern Blooms; sentiment is from Pocket Silhouettes. Scallop is SU's Square Scallop punch.
