Hello friends and happy Tuesday! This past Sunday we did a little hiking at Enders Falls State Park in Granby, Connecticut. Okay, so it was more of a walk in the woods as opposed to a "hike" but, that is just fine by me!! I am so not a nature girl. Ever heard the saying, "My favorite part of going outside is coming back in?!" Yup, that's me! I have also been spending a good amount of time in my craft room because I
have FOUR classes this week! Yup, F-O-U-R!
For today's card I have combined something old with something new. You might recognize the retired Mint Macaron color, but, look how beautifully it pairs with the new In-Color Tranquil Tide! I really think it's a serene, yet elegant combination for an ocean theme card.
The base of this A2 sized card is Thick Whisper White cardstock. I had a beautiful shimmery green color piece of scrap paper that I mounted on a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock (retired) measuring 5" x 3 3"4". Next, I die cut a stitched circle from a scrap of paper that had green seashells on it (also a perfect match!). I adhered this circle on top of the shimmery coral paper using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I die cut another small stitched circle from Whisper White cardstock. Using Tranquil Tide ink, I stamped the sentiment in the center of this circle. I adhered this circle onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I die cut two fish (similar dies here), one each from Tranquil Tide cardstock and Mint Macaron cardstock. I adhered both fish onto the card using the new Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
Want to make a nautical themed card? I highly recommend using this color combination:
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
