This week’s Global Design Project is a color combination: So Saffron, Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green. The colors inspired me to experiment with Around The Bend Dies from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I began with a Granny Apple Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The large, Around The Bend Die, was used to cut the card front, leaving half of the inside exposed.

Around The Bend


For the exposed inside, I used a pattern of Dandy Designs Designer Paper in Balmy Blue, 4″ X 5 1/4″. I also wanted to add white to the inside for writing a message. To do this, I used the same Around The Bend Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. After cutting, I glued this to the back of the card front, careful to match the die-cuts.


The sentiment on the front is from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, also in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I stamped “May the good you do come back to you” in Early Espresso Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used a Something Fancy Die for cutting. Then, I used a Something Fancy Die, a size larger, to cut a frame from Dandy Delight Designer Paper in Granny Apple Green, and attached the glued labels on Dimensionals.


To complete the design, I used Dainty Delight Dies to cut two flowers from So Saffron Cardstock, with centers of Early Espresso Cardstock, and attached them with Dimensionals.
