Happy Saturday, peeps! I found myself needing another sympathy card this week so I pulled out some beautiful Graphic 45 Botanical Tea papers I have been hoarding, along with the Match The Sketch sketch from this week:
to create my card:
I love how all the patterns on these papers coordinate. I used my drop-arm cutter to cut the right-hand panel out and flipped it over to the other side, which was a vanilla with a very light mottled tone. I stamped French Script on it very lightly in Pistachio Pudding, the over-stamped the leaves from Kinda Eclectic in the same ink. My cutting blade is very dull, so the edges of my panel were sort of distressed, so I sponged them with Sahara Sand before fitting it back into the green panel. I used a retired Cornish Heritage Farms Bible verse, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on top:
I added the large butterfly from Papillion Potpourri, stamped in Chocolate Chip and colored with Pistachio ink atop a couple of circular elements, then I pulled out a stamp I haven’t used in AGES, Waltzingmouse’s Country Labels 4 and stamped my sentiment from Petite Pairs inside:
I love this layout as well as these papers, so hopefully I will be using them both again soon!
Baby Mike (yes, I know, he’s either naked or wearing a dress….don’t try to influence a 4YO, they do what they want to do) got some play time outside recently:
Enjoy your day! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge too!
