My base card began
with an 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Pool Party card stock which was
scored with my Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool at 5 1/2″. The
smaller card was cut to 8″ x 3″ and scored at 4″. I love our Stampin’ Trimmer (126889) for projects like this, don’t you? Fit them together and voila!
My color inspiration was from the palette above, provided by the Pals Paper Arts Resident Artists. Check out what the rest of the PPA team has dreamed up with these colors and play along HERE!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- Paper Piercing around the butterflies is simple and adds an enormous WOW! factor. The butterfly template is part of the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack. Don’t forget the Stampin’ Pierce Mat for the perfect piercing platform.
- The charming Summer Starfruit paper patterns are from Patio Party Designer Series Paper.
- This paper is on the Stampin’ Up! Retiring Accessories List at 25% off–WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. The 3/16″ Metallic Brads are also retiring (and 25% off).
- An Antique Brad (not retiring 🙂 was used as a pretty closure for the smaller card.
