Flower Garden

Today's share uses the Flower Garden Embossing Folder which I bought a little while ago but put it in the back of my Embossing Folder box and forgot all about it.  So when I needed to make some Sympathy cards recently, I thought they would work well for a card that needed to be elegant but simple.

I've used the Flower Garden embossing folder to emboss a Whisper White matt that I've sponged lightly with Coastal Cabana and Lucky Limeade ink.  I've added a punched scallop border as it just needed something extra!  I've then used a background of Coastal Cabana.  Gosh I love that colour.

I've made a second card using Melon Mambo as the feature colour, adding sponging with Melon Mambo and Lucky Limeade ink.  Both cards have a teeny sentiment stapped and I've added white ribbon to both, just to add a touch of elegance.

I love both colour combinations and they're not too over the top for sympathy cards.  Both cards have used a Whisper White card base which is so pretty and tones down the bright colours.

So I've used:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Sentiment
Inks: Coastal Cabana, Basic Black, Melon Mambo & Lucky Limeade
Papers: Lucky Limeade, Whisper White & Melon Mambo CS
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Scallop Border punch & various ribbon
Big Shot: Flower Garden Embossing Folder
