Live Your Dream in Blue


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Confetti White, Ballet Blue, Always Artichoke
Ink: Always Artichoke, Ballet Blue, Night of Navy
Stamps: Live Your Dream, Best Yet
Other: Metallic Eyelet, 1/4" Grosgrain Always Artichoke, Linen Thread
Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm (approx 4" x 6")

Method:

I used the Stampin' Write markers to ink up the flower stamp before stamping on to Confetti White card. The corners were punched using a 1/2" circle punch, before matting with Handsome Hunter and Ballet Blue card. Wrapped with the ribbon and linen thread. Used the two tag punches, and a greeting from the level one hostess set Best Yet to create the tag. Popped in a silver eyelet from the metallic eyelets set using my cropodile. All mounted onto a Confetti White card base edged with the scallop edge punch and a piece of Ballet Blue stuck behind.

ETA: I completely forgot when making this post originally to mention that this card is a shameless case of one by Lynda Moss in Australia! My aplogies to you Lynda.

Like this Joanne I never use Handsome Hunter it scares me, but what a fab companion for ballet blue( which I also dont use much). M xxx

Thanks for mentioning the colour in your comment Monica - made me realise I made a mistake in my post - the green is Always Artichoke, not Handsome Humter as I have said! Off to edit my post now . . .

I like the way you have added a tag to the original design. Sadly this set didn't come up in our main catalogue which saddened me as this was my most favourite workshop demo at the end of last year! I will have to find a substitute stamp!
