OK...your screen is NOT off....your eyes are NOT deceiving you! I goofed....so, just imagine that the So Saffron color is Peach Parfait instead. (I don't know where my head is at these days!!) I was thinking peach when I created this card this morning, but I reached for So Saffron instead. I'm really having a "dumb blonde day" today.....hope the other Bloggers' don't mind my mistake!!
Anyway, I'm in love with Wild Wasabi these days (did you notice?!!...I've used it in a few recent postings), so this is presently my "go to" green color. IMHO, it's just such a lovely, Spring-like green. And to think I wasn't very impressed a couple of years ago when this was an In-Color! Hmm....guess we all evolve with time, right?!!
Anyway, I wanted to keep this card kind of simple...it began with an entirely different layout in mind! (That process of evolving!) There's actually quite a bit going on here, but since the backgrounds are color-on-color, it doesn't really look too busy.
Can you see the die cut Lattice background? Well, originally, I thought that it would be perfect for the Inlaid Embossing technique. And quite possibly, it would be....IF it wasn't the same color as the background. Since the die cut piece is the same color as the card background, it simply disappeared! Even in real life, I could barely see it....and that simply will not do!! You see, with all those tiny sections, adhering the cut piece to the embossed background is a bit tricky, so I figured the inlaid process would take care of that....but, NOPE, that didn't work at all! Guess, it needed to be a contrasting color.
So, once the background was fixed, a circle was die cut from the Circles #2 die (it's the 3rd largest size)...but, if you are lucky enough to own the new 2 1/2" Circle Punch, that would work as well. (Mine has been on backorder!) Then the circle was simply stamped in Wild Wasabi and the flowers were added in. Aren't those dimensional flowers....created with the Flower Fusion Sizzlet...just adorable?!! The centers are Bitty Buttons tied with a bit of Linen Thread.
All in all, when I worked out the kinks, it was a very fun card to create....and even if I used the wrong color scheme, I love the fresh, Spring-like look!! (Oh! I hope Spring comes soon...don't you?)
