I made this card as a customer thank you card for a customer who purchased the new 2021-2023 In Color papers. Quite honestly, I wasn’t sure how this was going turn out, but I must say I absolutely love the end result! I paired the papers with the Daisy Lane Stamp Set/Medium Daisy Punch, and the Brick and Mortar embossing folder.
The three embossed panels are all soft colors (Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, and Fresh Fresia), and the mat and card base are more bold and bright (Evening Evergreen and Polished Pink). The embossed panels were first die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then embossed with the Brick and Mortar folder.
I wanted to bring all the colors together, so I carried the Polish Pink into the daisy. The daisy was made using the Daisy Lane stamp set and then punched out using the Medium Daisy Punch. The center of the daisy is inked in Pale Papaya.
To further make Polished Pink, the color of the card base, dominant, I stamped the sentiment with that color. This sentiment comes from the Plentiful Plants stamp set. See the video below for another version with sentiments from the Daisy Lane set.
