Little Things Make Life Big

From Adriel:

This is a card I made a couple of days ago. It is a monochromatic card and has LOTS of layers! The colors I used for this card were whisper white CS, not quite navy CS, and the new in-color, baja breeze CS. I started with a whisper white base for the card. I used baja breeze CS on top of the card base. I added silver brads to the corners of the baja breeze CS. I didn't have the ticket corner punch, so I just used my 1/2" circle punch to punch the corners out of the whisper white CS and not quite navy CS panels. I attached these to the baja breeze with SNAIL. I tied some 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon around this finished panel, then I used dimensionals to attach the baja breeze panel to the whisper white card base.

I used a set I haven't used in awhile: Happy Harmony. I REALLY like this set! I wish it was a permanent set, because it is really lovely! Anyway, stamped the "flower" (I think it's a dandelion) on baja breeze in whisper white craft ink. I used some "winter wonderland" embossing powder (not SU) that we've had hanging around. It added a nice shiny sparkle to the image! As you can see, I put a white layer under this stamped image. I used dimensionals to attach to card. My sentiment is stamped on whisper white CS in not quite navy classic ink. I attached this to an ever-so-slightly larger piece of not quite navy CS, then a piece baja breeze CS, and finally to a larger piece of whisper white CS that I scallop punched only two edges of. I dimensioned this even more than my image.

Anyway, wanted to share that with you! Have a wonderful day! And's the little things that make life BIG!

This card is VERY pretty - I love the crisp, yet soft nature of it!
