Today’s card is showcasing one of my favorite papers in the annual catalog – it comes from the Naturally Eclectic DSP. I love the combination of lemon lime twist, tranquil tide and soft sky and all done in a watercolor-like way.
I took a piece of the DSP and matted it with what I thought was tranquil tide but it’s not until I was sitting down to write this that I realise it’s actually emerald envy! But it works. I wanted the panel the width of the card and rather than relying on perfect measuring, I actually had a slightly wider piece and trimmed off the excess with the trimmer after I’d glued it down to the whisper white card base. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and that really is stamped in tranquil tide – and that’s also the tranquil tide 1/2 inch finely woven ribbon making the tails of the rosette. I used my favourite stitched shapes framelits to cut out the sentiment – love the stitching. I popped the sentiment up with dimensionals to give the ribbon room.
