With the end of summer quickly approaching, I wanted to make certain that I shared this cheery card with you. Created for the May Dirty Dozen gallery entitled "How Does Your Garden grow?", this card features bright colors, some of which are now retired. However, there are definitely wonderful substitutions which can be made!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips:
- Paper go bye-bye? Don't cry! I used Brilliant Blue and Summer Sun on this card. But can you image how stunning it would look with Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight? I can hardly wait to try it!
- Coordinate your punches and dies! The Two Tags Bigz Die was zipped through the Big Shot with Real Red card stock. It was then texturized with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. But don't stop now! Add a yellow Scallop Circle Punch for fun!
- It's all about the details! Paper piercing adds interest to the scallops, but look what happens when Linen Thread is added to the mix! And it is so easy...just long stitches across the scallop topped off with an Itty Bitty Button. Three additional Itty Bitty Buttons accent the Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon.
Large simple designs, like Awash with Flowers, cry out for bright bold colors and strong details. Don't be afraid to go for the bold!
