I saw these colors mixed together in a home furnishings catalog (West Elm) and thought it would make a modern and elegant birthday card for my sister-in-law.
The Upsy Daisy stamp was inked in Going Gray and stamped on Very Vanilla. I die cut and embossed this layer and the Really Rust scalloped layer below using Nestabilties Rectangles (www.ucutathome.com) and a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
The layout was inspired by this week's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge (SC203). The Going Gray card base is 4.25 x 5.5, scored at the top. Really Rust Textured corners were popped out quickly using a 3/4" Square Punch. Very Vanilla Textured card stock added a rich backdrop and helped create an interesting geometric pattern.
The sentiment (also from Upsy Daisy) was inked in Basic Gray, stamped on Really Rust and snapped out with Stampin' Up!'s Large Oval Punch. It gets a lift from Stampin' Dimensionals. Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon sneaks through to tie things up neatly.
THE PERFECT TOUCH. In line with the Splitcoast Ways to Use Challenge to use pearls (WT193), these lovely Cream Halfback Pearls from the Stampin' Up! Pretties Kit were "just the thing" for finishing off the corners. TIP: As a helpful resource, all links to all Splitcoast daily challenges are listed on my left side bar.
