CCMC262 Too Kind

It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday color challenge that anyone can play along with!  It is a gorgeous color combination.  I'm so happy Stampin' Up! introduced Bermuda Bay and the lighter Smoky Slate colors!



I thought I'd use my Stampin' Up! Too Kind stamp set…stamping it in these non-traditional flower colors!



Here are the details:

  1. The 4 1/4 x 11 base of Bermuda Bay is folded in half to make the base card.
  2. I embossed the 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Smoky Slate with the new Beautifully Baroque folder.
  3. Across the front, I added Bermuda Bay Designer Paper Stack pattern (I'm LOVING these patterns!)
  4. I stamped a 2 1/4 x 4 3/4 piece of Whisper White with the Too Kind stamp set and Bermuda Bay for the flowers (background stamped off) and Smoky Slate for the stems.
  5. At the top and bottom I added a 2 1/4 x 1/2 piece of Basic Black cardstock.
  6. I used Rhinestone jewels at the base of each blossom for a little extra bling.
  7. I tied White Bakers Twine in a bow and added it to the largest flower.
  8. Finally, I stamped the greeting with Basic Black on Smoky Slate and punched with the Artisan Label punch, then place it on the front with a Stampin' Dimensional!

Go check out what the rest of the Design Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Then grab your stamps and ink and play along!

Connie, your card is beautiful!  I love the flowers in Bermuda Bay (who knew!) and all the textures you have.  The black really makes everything pop!
