I let punches and die cuts do most of the work on today's card. The results are quick, clean and pretty.
Using this week's Splitcoast Color Challenge 206 (Rose Red, More Mustard, Kiwi Kiss) to guide me, I popped out colorful rose and mustard flower centers with my 1" Circle Punch. They were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals on Whisper White flower die cuts (Sizzlits Birds and Blooms). The white flowers really stand out against the Kiwi Kiss card stock background.
The More Mustard horizontal panel gets a blast of contrast from Rose Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon. The sentiment is from Bella Blossoms (a dormant but available Stampin' Up! stamp set). TIP: I am a big fan of Jet Black Stazon for crisp sentiments (despite it's funky smell). "Best wishes" was stamped on Whisper White, cropped with a Large Oval Punch and layered over a Wide Oval Punch in Kiwi Kiss.
I flipped a Clean&Simple sketch (FTL30) for today's layout. The card base is 4.25 x 5.5 in Whisper White. The bottom corners are shaped up with a Corner Rounder Punch.
My final touch is three sweet Rose Red Brads from the Rich Regals Brads assortment. TIP: I used a Paper Piercer and Template to create evenly spaced and aligned holes before adding the brads.
