Ummm, yum! I can’t STAND how darling this color combination is!! This card may look clean and simple but it actually took about two hours and lots and lots of do overs until I was happy with the outcome, but man oh man am I happy with it! Worth every piece of card stock!!

The Details:

  • Base is Thick Whisper White card stock, cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″and scored at 5 1/2″
  • The Peekaboo Peach Designer Series paper is from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack and is cut to 3 5/8″ x 4 5/8″
  • The Mint Macaroon Designer Series Paper is from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper and is cut to 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
  • The top layer is Thick Whisper White, cut to 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
  • I felt that the Peekaboo Peach layer didn’t have quite enough impact, so I trimmed it to a slightly larger size than the other two layers

  • This darling flower is from another 3 layer stamp set called Garden in Bloom. I only used 2 layers though, the outline and the filler. I tried adding in the detail stamp but it just didn’t work for me today, so I left it out on both the flower and the leaves
  • This color combination of Peekaboo Peach and mint Macaron just blows me away…I LOVE it!!! I started with Pear Pizzazz but it wasn’t working for me either. Did I mention I stamped this a zillion times before I was happy?
  • The sentiment is from Blooms & Wishes. This is the stamp set I started out with but just couldn’t make the flowers work for me today…so I changed the flowers but kept the sentiment. LOVE the font!!

  • I tried adding Enamel Shapes. I tried adding Pearls. I tried adding Rhinestones. Nope. In the end I used only Wink of Stella. The card shimmers SO prettily! I wish I could capture it with my camera!

Super clean and simple. Super cheerful. I’m in love with the colors…what do yo think?

    Great colors! Yep, some days are like that……..nothing seems to look quite right! I have often had to just walk away & leave it for a while. Then when I come back to it, something just clicks!! You did a great job of clicking. Love the colors & the simple design of the card…..makes a nice impact with simplicity.
