  • Being negative!  I love using the negative space of the the Medium Star Punch to expose the Cucumber Crush below and add dimension.

  • The simple patterns for the card and envelope liner were plucked from Stampin’ Up! Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  I love that it’s 6 x 6, which is perfect for card making.  See more big, bold views of all the designer series paper from the annual catalog here.

  • The little things!  A touch of Linen Thread and a trio of Bermuda Bay Candy dots are all the “dressing up” this card needs.

  • Crumb Cake is such a versatile neutral and plays well with bold colors.  I used it for the card base and coordinating Crumb Cake Medium Envelope.
