Apple Blossoms Card

Yup, another card. I have a few projects in the works but they are sitting in a box until I get done working on the wedding invitations for a neighbor. They are taking up much of my free time lately and I'm hoping to be done with them by the end of the week!

So, here is another card I made using the "Apple Blossoms" set. Once again I wasn't sure where I was going with this card when I started it out. I had first stamped the three long leaf things, each in the colors they are in, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. I liked the colors I picked. Together they were pleasing to the eye. But now what to do with them? I had cut the white strips I stamped them on way too long so they fit on the card but without the colored layer. Well, I HAD to have color! SO I trimmed them up and it gave me room for the layers.

I originally wanted the card orientated the shorter way, with the fold on the top. But that wouldn't work unless I cut the image off at the bottoms. I wanted the whole image so I turned the card and tried to figure out where I was going to set my panels. First I was going to make them all even across the top. That would leave me room for a ribbon or wording on the bottom. But I didn't like the looks of it so I set the Pumpkin Pie one in the middle and played with the other two until I got what you see here. If I hadn't played aroudn with the layout so much this card would have been one of those you could whip together in less than 20 minutes.

I used Pumpkin Pie card stock for the base of the card and added a layer of Whisper White that I dry embossed with the fun embossing folders! I just love using them.

This card can be used for a lot of occasions. I will probably use it for a thank you card. It seems lately that I am in need of them.

I like the colors and I like the image too!

Thank you SO much for visitng today,

Love this! Great layout for that last minuet "OMG I need a card NOW!" situations we all find ourselves in. You do make some lovely cards. Great color combos.
