I’ve always been fascinated with the gorgeous page of beautifully colored hexagons in the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper, but I’ve yet to feature it on a card. Today’s the day, my friends! ♥ The hexagons remind me of a turtle’s back, so I knew it would pair perfectly with the flipped-over turtle from Back on Your Feet. What fun! Here’s my card:
- Back on Your Feet. We are all in quite a pickle right now – life it not normal, and we’re all feeling the drain of isolation at home. We could all use a little lift – and what better way to show encouragement than an adorable card. The struggling turtle, twisted giraffe and injured sloth in Back on Your Feet sum up how we feel these days – and the sentiments are pretty wonderful, too! Here’s a look at Back on Your Feet stamp set: And here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper – such a great mix of bright colors and bold patterns: I cropped this page of hexagons with my Stitched Nested Labels Dies – perfect for the sketch and a perfect accent for this turtle.
- Snip and Punch. There are not coordinating dies for the Back on Your Feet stamp set, so I pulled out my trusty Paper Snips and cropped out this little guy. I colored him with a mix of Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the Old Olive Combo Stampin’ Blends – super-easy and super-fun. Here’s a closer look: I stamped the sentiment on a 1″ strip of Old Olive cardstock and then cropped a banner tip by sliding the banner into the top of my Tailored Tag punch. It gave me the perfect banner for my sweet sentiment:
- Color Combination. Whether it represents sky or water, the Pacific Point panel on this card is vibrant and uplifting, don’t you think? I pulled the green and blue panels from the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper and pulled the Crumb Cake frame from the turtle. The three colors complement each other so well – perhaps is the earth, grass, sky connection? If you like this mix of Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Pacific Point, please save this for future reference:
