Love and Care

I thought I’d try some new colors.  Well, new to me anyway…  I have my favorites, and it’s really hard to get me out of my comfort zone.  That’s why, even though I’m mixing it up a bit, I still had to use Old Olive!

Color combo: Flowers - Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, and Old Olive. Card stock - Very Vanilla, Night Quite Navy, and Soft Suede.

I textured the background paper using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions folder, and then distressed the edges.  All of my sentiments were too long for the Modern Label punch, so I cheated a little.  I measured the width of the punch (it comes out to about 9/16”) then cut a strip to that width, and stamped my sentiment.  Slipped the end of the strip through the bottom of the punch and placed it where I wanted it punched. Then did the same for the other end. Voila!

This was actually the first card I made with these colors, and in the middle of making this one, I came up with the other one.  Luckily, my brain didn’t lose it before I finished the first one!

I think I like the second one best. What do you think?
