Beautiful You, Birthday Card, 2017 Occasions Catalog

My sweet friend Colleen C. gave me this beautiful card.  The Decorative Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Fruit Stand pack. I looked in the catalog for this and kept passing it by.  All I saw was the fruit and not what was on the other side. It's pretty paper!!  This color is Peekaboo Peach.  

The base of this card is a folded half sheet of Peekaboo Peach cardstock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then the "Fruit Stand" papers were set on top of that.  They were cut 3-3/4" x 2" for the bottom piece, and the top piece was cut 3-3/4" x 3".  A piece of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was added to hide where the two pieces of DSP meet or overlap, depends on how you cut your pieces. I tend to cut a little longer and just overlap a little. Not too much or the ribbon won't cover it.

The image was stamped on a piece of Whisper White that was cut 4" x 2-1/2".  Then it was colored in using a blender pen and the Peekaboo Peach ink pad.  The "Floral Affection" embossing folder was used on top of the image.  I love the looks of that effect.  It was then set on a piece of Peekaboo Peach cut 4-1/4" x 2-3/4".  It was set in place using Dimensionals.  Then three silver sequins were added and it was done.

A pretty quick and simple card. I LOVE the colors here.  Now I want to buy the "Floral Affection" embossing folder set. GRRR There are two smaller folders in that set.  I will add it to my wishlist!

Thank you so much for stopping by today,
