I love ALL these colors, I just don’t think I ever put them together at one time! As usual, when I am stumped, I do my “lazy”-style card, and this time I pulled out an old, old SU set I got for a bargain at a yard sale; it’s called Sea Shell. I did some heat embossing, some dry embossing and some layering:
This card is 4 1/2” square; the base is stamped with the flourish from Vintage Vogue, then layered with a simple vellum layer for some softness. Each shell is stamped in Craft white, then embossed with white EP. I sponged behind each one, including the sentiment from Best Yet, in matching ink to give it some shadow and depth. They were punched out with a square scallop punch, then mounted on a larger square embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots EF, which also had been distressed a little. A simple organdy bow in the center finishes it off!
