This card became a happy accident! I was trying to case a card and it wasn't working. This happy color combination was the result! Calypso Coral Cardstock and the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP make adorable cards with little effort. The Lovely Words Thinlets make striking cards as well! On September 19th and 20th, I will be hosting a class with this great set! There are so many ways to use these script like words!
The new orchid set makes gorgeous cards and 3D projects, as you will see in my two projects today. First, I found a clearance rack plant and took off the flowers. Then I stamped the orchids on Flirty Flamingo Cardstock with Raspberry Ripple ink, replaced the flowers with the paper ones, and look at the stunning result!
Then I stamped the other style of orchids on Daffodil Cardstock with Crushed Curry ink. Again, a stunning result. The cards almost designed themselves!
My post last week mentioned that if you turn the Ruffled Embossing Folder upside down, it looks like waves! The Shaving Cream Technique also looks like waves! I combined them and ta da! A pretty cool water scene!

Cards do NOT have to fold in the middle! I love to make cards that are a surprise to open! The Whisper White Cardstock measures 5 1/4 by 4 inches and folded in half, forms the card inside for this card! Using the Layered Leaves Textured Embossing Folder on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and backing it with Dapper Denim, makes a bold statement for the Colorful Seasons images from one of my favorite new bundles in the new catalog! The new copper metal ribbon matches perfectly with Soft Suede Ink!
