Hi! To begin with, I'm taking a color challenge on this card and would like to focus on Father's Day. I wanted to use a designer paper that would hold blues, greens and browns but I didn't really find any. I'm sure that the NEW SU! Idea Book Catalog will have tons of new designs and colors but I'm starting off with my own :)
I used my 3/4" square punch and the 1/2" circle punch on the design using the following colors:
- Baja Breeze
- Old Olive
- Certainly Celery
- Tempting Turquoise
- Soft Suede
- Concord Crush
- Marina Mist
Then, used the Chocolate Chip Brown for the 4-1/4" x 11" cardstock and scored at 5-1/2" with 5/8" Satin Ribbon. For the Whisper White scallop at the bottom, I just used (4) 1" circle punch.
For the tag, I used the 1-3/8" Circle Punch on Whisper White CS and 1-3/4" circle Punch on Certainly Celery CS with a Certainly Celery Grosgain Ribbon.
You may use any stamp for this card, but I used the "Naturally Serif" sizzlits decorative strip die for my "DAD" and used the "Hodgepodge Happiness" stamp set :)
I hope you enjoyed my post today and I'll see you again on my next project!
