Isn't this mix of blues stunning and fresh? Take this opportunity to indulge in your summer blues and play this week's Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA101). Be sure to see the beautiful challenge samples the Pals Paper Arts Design Team has prepared along with this week's Celebrity Guest Stamper Lesley Croghan.
- The Whisper White card base measures 5 1/2" x 4". I cropped it 1/4" less wide than a standard A2 card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4") so that I could "dangle" the Marina Mist layer over the right side and still fit it in a Whisper White Medium Envelope (107301).
- That's the Top Note Die in the background with a simple modification to make it square using a Big Shot. Learn more with this Top Note Die Squared Video Tutorial.
- I inked the flower image from Flower Fest (Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog) in Not Quite Navy and stamped it twice on Bashful Blue and once on Marina Mist. I cropped out the images and stacked to build a custom flower.
- The 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch coordinates with the full flower image. So easy! I used Paper Snips for the rest.
- Thread your button with Stampin' Up! 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. I used Marina Mist to add the charming touch. Watch my 1 Minute to WOW video for a demonstration.
