Oh, how I love the new colors and these two in particular are gorgeous. The colors I used for this card are Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather and the stamp sets are Stitched All Around and Colorful Seasons. I also used the beautiful Tufted Embossing Folder, and Clear Wink of Stella on the buttons of the tufted embossing folder.
The greeting and the sentiment were stamped with Gorgeous Grape onto Highland Heather cardstock. I used the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies to cut out the greeting for the front of the card.
Here, I used Bermuda Bay and the returning color “Coastal Cabana”. So glad this color has returned. It was and still is one of my favorites. I also used the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon which I love. I wrapped it around the tufted layer horizontally and vertically and adhered it to the back with a small piece of scotch tape. I made the bow separately and attached it with multipurpose liquid glue. You can also use glue dots, but I thought it would hold better with the liquid glue.
As a side note, this ribbon can be colored with a sponge dauber so you can match it to whatever cardstock you want.
The greeting and the sentiment for the Bermuda Bay/Coastal Cabana card was stamped with Bermuda Bay classic ink. Add a few a pearls and there you have it – a couple of pretty awesome cards if I may say so myself.
I mentioned above that you can color the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon with a sponge dauber and your ink pads. Here is a sample of the colored ribbon. They are colored in the order the ink pads are stacked. I love how you can change the look of the ribbon with a little bit of ink to match your projects.
