Don't Mix Red & Orange!

I remember as a child that red and orange don't go together. Why not? I always thought they did and from the looks of this card I still do!!! LOL

Once again this is a very simple card because of the background papers. Background papers save so much time.

I really like this layout because you can use these smaller stamps as the focal part of your card and get by with it! You don't have to use them as an accompaniment to layered wording or other images. It does just fine all by itself!!!

I also LOVE this wider grosgrain ribbon too. I can't seem to get enough of it and actually I don't have enough of it! I need to order some other colors. It's a LOT of fun to play with!!! They help to pick up the slack of the open areas and allow you to use these smaller stamps.

I stamped "thank you" directly onto the decorative paper. No layering for the words. This keeps the apple the focal point of the card. This is a very quick card to make too!!! Plus this card is extremely versatile. It would also work for other occasions too!

This card was made entirely of Stampin' Up! products. To view more cards/items made entirely of Stampin' Up! products click here.

I think you're right - red and orange go together just fine and especially on that card! Don't listen to "them".

This is absolutely fabulous Wanda! I'm going to tuck this away for inspiration for a hostess gift set that I will be working on in a few weeks. :)

Many Blessings,
