For my card today, I went with colors that I don't normally use. It's good to step outside our comfort zones at times, right?!
For the card layers, I embossed white card stock with the gorgeous Spring Blossoms 3D embossing folder. I love how this adds subtle interest to the background! Then I trimmed the embossed panel to 4" x 5-¼". I layered it on some coral card stock and adhered it to my card base.
Next I die cut all of the Craft-A-Flower: California Giant pieces from white card stock. I looked at all of my various inks and chose a warm yellow, and a couple of coral shades for the flower and greens for the leaves. I used some Ink Blending Tools to color the pieces.
I used the included layering guide to layer the pieces and glue them together. I colored a scrap of white card stock with some of the same coral ink I used in the flower. Then I die cut the sentiment shadow layer from it, and the sentiment top layer from white. I popped the sentiment up with some foam tape.
