Tangerine Spirits

Stampin up tango kindred spirits

Tangerine Tango does an amazingly spirited dance with Whisper White. The card is quite simple and is modeled after this card by Silke. 

I began with the Kindred Spirits stamp inked in Versamark and stamped on Tangerine Tango.  Heat embossing with White Embossing Powder turns a soft look into a crisp contrast.  TIP:  A Corner Rounder Punch creates a little added interest on the bottom right corner of the silhouette panel.

I adhered the Tangerine layer with Stampin' Dimensionals to Whisper White followed by a final mat of Tangerine Tango.  TIP:  I left room between the top and middle layer to sneak my Tangerine Tango 5/8" Striped Grosgrain through.

The card base is 4.25 x 5.5 and scored at the top.  TIP:  The bottom right of the base is cropped with a Corner Rounder Punch to mirror the main panel.  A Stamp-a-ma-jig assured perfect placement of the Tangerine sentiment.  Three of Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Silver Brads pump up the top right.

I jumped on the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC150) band wagon today and sparked my imagination with this pillow.
