Today’s card, which is my entry into this week’s Global Design Project Challenge #GDP335 is almost entirely die cut.
I have made quite a few cards using the Brilliant Rainbow dies and this time put them with Horizon and Stitched Rectangle dies to create a sweet little scene in soft pastel and neutral colours.
A couple of the layers have been embossed using Tasteful Textiles which adds a lovely heavy canvas type texture.
I started with an Early Espresso layer, on which sits an embossed Pool Party layer with the bottom half Very Vanilla. I created some fields by overlapping die cut pieces in Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede. Next I placed the clouds and rainbow pieces.
Finally the scene was completed with the last cloud, the trees on the horizon line and the fence and grass pieces.
I added some linen thread and then used pieces of dimensional around the outside edge to raise the layer up off the card base.
I love the earthy tones of this card with the soft greens and pastel shades adding just a hint of colour. The only stamped element is the sentiment which is from Sweet as a Peach.
There is still time to help me support the appeal, for every order placed during March using this month's host code PZPTR69C, I will make a donation of 10% of the order value (including tax & shipping) to the British Red Cross DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
