The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is extraordinary! One of my favorite sheets is predominately Mint Macaron, a popular returning color. You can’t imagine how happy I am that it is back!
Mint Macaron is such a beautiful shade of green, I bought a pack of it when I knew it was retiring last year. So, I was prepared with plenty, and cut a piece in half (5 1/2 X 4 1/4) for this card base. Next, I cut a piece of this gorgeous designer paper (5 1/4 X 4), and used Snail Glue to adhere it to the card base.
The rest of the lay-out was determined by the challenge at Fab Friday. Here is their sketch:
I used another piece of Mint Macaron for the center rectangle. After contemplating different embossing folders, I decided on the Scattered Sequins. Now I have a shower of Mint Macaron sequins. Don’t they look real?
For the banner underneath the rectangle, I used the Banner Triple Punch with a piece of Pear Pizzazz. I embossed it with the Petal pair Embossing Folder.
The bow in the sketch was an easy choice, because I was dying to use our new Mint Macaron Nature’s Twine. I attached it with a Mini Glue Dot, and it is holding fast.
For the sentiment, I wanted to use paper words from the Celebrate You Die Set. I cut the word, “amazing” from the color, Old Olive, double layered it, and used Tombow for gluing.
If you haven’t heard, Old Olive is moving from the “Brights Collection” to the “Regals Collection.” I’m all about green, so as long as it’s in there, I’m happy.
I got carried away on the inside of the card, wanting to use another piece of the DSP. I cut a second banner, the same size as the one on the front. Don’t you love this designer paper? And, I cut “You” with a Celebrate You die, double layered, and Tombow glued.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Better Together Stamp Set, which I stamped in Tranquil Tide. I recently purchased Better Together, a two part set. It has many great sentiments, and will be put to good use. The question is, why did I wait so long?
Thank you for visiting me in my happy, Share What You Love, Mint Macaron world.
