Cantaloupe Congrats

cataloupe congrats

I sound like a stuck record (wow, I just realized how "old school" that phrase is!) but the quickest, easiest way to design a card is to start with a luscious designer paper like Venetian Romance.  The color scheme is unusual yet absolutely gorgeous – Crisp Cantaloupe, Island Indigo, Pistachio Pudding, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.  

  • Here I've begun with a card base of Very Vanilla then added Crisp Cantaloupe which has been paper punched around the edge.
  • I tied a piece of Soft Suede around the designer paper and adhered it to the base.
  • Now for some stamping – I used one of the "Best of 25 Years" stamp set called Best of Flowers to stamp the flower image in Island Indigo, then Sweet Essentials stamp set and Soft Suede ink to stamp the sentiment.
  • I added a strip of Tangerine Tango card stock to separate the two stamped areas and viola – that's it!
