The color combo came straight from the SU! Color Coach. If the Color Coach says it's a good match, then it is. It's like the "Godfather" of crafting tools. Haha! I actually attempted to use as many new products as I could on this card. It's kind of ridiculous.I love a card with lots of layers and his one is chock full of them!
I am absolutely loving the new In-Colors...especially Summer Starfruit, which I wasn't so sure about, at first. The main image was punched (...and punched...and punched) from the Quint-Essential Flower image. I love stamps that coordinate with punches and this one happens to match up with 5 punches. Pretty fabulous, right? I also used a cool new tool called the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, to add those paper-pierced elements around the circle, This is seriously an awesome tool...it has templates to punch around a variety of shapes. That has to be one of my favorite items from the new catty, for sure! The complete supply list is featured at the end of this post.
I realized after I put this card together that I added the sentiment to the opposite side of the sketch. Ack!!The inside of the card was dressed up with some plain card stock and a little DSP to add a personalized note. Instead of sharing that boring photo, I thought I would share a shot of my sweet Maine Coon kitty, Benjamin Maxwell. He likes to "supervise" me when I am in my craft room. Here he is on resting on the storage bins under the window, in my craft room. He's a BIG ol' mess! (Rita, I made him pose just for you!)
