Now on to the card...I picked up a fabulous Melody Ross printed paper stack at Hobby Lobby on clearance a few weeks ago and thought the bright colors were perfect for this project. I combined the MR printed paper with some solid color textured cardstock from The Paper Studio (also from Hobby Lobby). Here's a photo of my finished card:
The colors in the picture aren't exactly what they look like in person...it is more of a teal & yellow, instead of the cobalt/yellow it looks like here. I don't know if you can tell or not, but the teal color of the MR pattern paper is foil! Love that!
I used the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge for the card (page 26 <Pickle> at 6.75 inches) and the layer (page 26 <Pickle-s>). I cut an envelope (not pictured) from page 66 <Peach> at 6.75 inches. The teal frame was cut from page 52 <Flowr2-s> at 3.5 inches, and another of this same cut at 3.00 inches, then layered them together. I used the Wild Card Cricut cartridge to cut the "thinking of you" phrase from page 54 <Thinking> at 4.5 inches. I used my paper trimmer to cut the yellow strip of paper to fit across the patterned layer and then embossed it with my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Here's a close up of the detail (you can see the shine of the foil in this pic):
I hope you enjoyed this project. I think this is my favorite card that I've made so far. :-)
Have a good weekend everyone!
