April Swap


I had a terrible time coming up with a color combination for this card.  I love the Botanical Gazette DSP and wanted to use this particular stamp with it.   I was so stumped that I had to take it to my Peeps for help.   We tried several color combinations until Voila!  We found it. Crumb Cake with Not Quite Navy.
The base of the card is Crumb Cake. The mat is Night Quite Navy ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The DSP is from the Botanical Gazette series now retired from the Occasions Mini Catalog but available digitally on My Design Studio. I used a scrap of Crumb Cake with the Scallop Border Punch and tucked it just to the left under the DSP. Next a wrap with Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon.
The stamp set if from the Four Frames set , a sneak peak from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog.  I also used the Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Both are stamped with Night Quite Navy on Crumb Cake and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. A faux mat is also punched with the Decorative Label Punch from Not Quite Navy. Not Quite Navy brads were used to embellish the sentiment.
I really like the design of this card.  I was going for a masculine look and I think it turned out just fine.  Not my favorite card but I think I did it justice.  Thanks to my PEEPs, Pam, Judy & Patty for helping me get it right!
