Blossom, Guava and Olive.......

is one of my favourite colour combinations at the moment.

I made this card a little while ago using Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava and Old Olive cardstock. I also love making a sideways opening card as I feel it stands better than a tent style card.

This is such an easy layout that you can apply to so many cards. I've used the Old Olive Prints Designer paper across the middle mounted on Old Olive cardstock. I stamped the background using the flower stamp from Simply Said randomly over the the Blush Blossom cardstock. I also stamped the same flower on a spare piece of cardstock to use later for the greeting which is from the level 1 hostess set - so many sayings which is stamped in Old Olive ink then punched out using the large oval punch. I then stuck some groovy guave ribbon on top of the Olive and then placed the oval greeting on top.

I stamped the solid flower on whisper white cardstock and then the dotted flower over the top before punching it out witht he 1 3/8" circle punch. The brad is Old Olive through the flower and then mounted using dimensionals onto a scalloped Groovy Guava piece that I have pierced using a piercing tool which is then mounted using dimensionals onto the card.
