Colour combinations are all important, as this peach and mint combination shows.
The 12x12 cm card is also an example of how you can use your narrow left-over strips of pretty printed paper to offset the focus element.
I used the velvety touch cardstock in cream for the card base. This was topped with a layer of textured cardstock in mint. A paper scrap was used for the fern-embossed piece in cream. Only half of the doily was die-cut from peach shimmer cardstock to add further texture. This was first adhered to a very narrow strip of moss cardstock (5 mm wide), which was then adhered to a strip of pretty printed paper, before al the paper pieces were put together.
the finishing touch is a flower cut on my KNK Zing electronic cutter. E-mail me if you would like to receive an SVG or MTC file for this.
