The one thing I knew was that I wanted to use the Brick Wall Embossing Folder for my background so I started by cutting a Night of Navy matte. Using my now retired brayer to ink up the top of the folder with Whisper White Craft Ink, I then placed my matte on the other side of the folder, closed it, and ran it through the Big Shot. This gave me some light "grout" lines on my brick-embossed card stock. After setting the ink with my heat tool, I adhered the matte to a Thick Whisper White card base using Foam Adhesive Strips.
I stamped the sentiment with Night of Navy on a scrap of Thick Whisper White and then die cut it using a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I used dies from the Flourish Thinlits to die cut leaves and flowers from Cucumber Crush and Thick Whisper White and then developed a pleasing design on my card front. After snapping a picture for reference, I took the design apart and then used liquid adhesive and Foam Adhesive Strips to adhere the die cuts and sentiment to the card front, adding White Perfect Accents for the flower centres.
Finally, to complete the card, I stamped the large flourish image on the inside of the card.
Do you like the color combo? You can pin the following image for future reference.
Don't forget to stock up on all things Cucumber Crush (and any of the other retiring In Colors) in my online store.
I will be entering this card in the Global Design Project #081. Won't you come and play too?
