Bravo Burgundy and More Mustard are unlikely color partners (and, yes, I discovered these colors together in J. Crew). However, I wanted something unique and pretty for my friend and a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, Kim. Check out these adorable coasters she shares on her blog, Stamp, Scrap and Get Kreative.
This interesting layout from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge charmed me, too. The card base is 4.25 x 5.5 in Stampin' Up!'s luxurious Bravo Burgundy card stock (scored at the top). The left corner circle is in More Mustard, cut and embossed with Circle Nestabilities. TIP: Dry Embossing with Stampin' Up!'s Floral Frenzy Classy Brass Template looks striking on textured card stock. I dotted 1/4" circles in mustard along the edge for a little amusement.
The sentiment is from Enjoy Every Moment (I'm a fan of big block sentiments) and is stamped in Bravo Burgundy on Very Vanilla. Burgundy and mustard layers follow. The corners are wrapped with a touch of More Mustard 1/4" Grosgrain. A Flower Fusion felt flower and Circle Rhinestone dress up the letter "o."
I tucked in "every moment" (Bravo Burgundy ink on More Mustard) and jazzed the bottom using a Scallop Edge Punch. TIP: Think balance when embellishing. The larger fusion flower mirrors the "o" in "enjoy" and is layered on 1 1/4" Mustard and 1 3/8" Burgundy Circle Punches. I attached this final element with Stampin' Dimensionals for a three dimensional pop!
