Aren't they pretty together? Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral are both very bright colors so I knew that I would use a lot of white for balance. I also wanted to play more with the Hexagon Hive die and try using only a section of it....
I like how using only a portion of the die shape and stamping underneath gives the illusion of flowers growing through a garden fence. Two different flowers from Petite Petals stamped in Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral and some Gorgeous Grunge splatters in Always Artichoke created the background.
You can see that I just snipped away sections of the Hexagon Hive die to reveal more of the flowers underneath. Cutting away a corner section left the perfect spot for a sentiment. Adding texture with the Woodgrain embossing folder helps create depth to the tone-on-tone look of white on white. A sprinkling of tiny basic rhinestones adds just a little sparkle and shine.
On the inside, it was very easy just to replicate the spray of flowers on the front, leaving enough space for a birthday sentiment. I had fun making this card and I hope you've had fun touring it with me! Be sure to check out the rest of the Paper Players Design Team for even more inspiration. Our challenge is open until Friday, April 18th at Noon (PST)--we would love to see what you do with these colors! Thanks for stopping by!
