STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS!
- Stampin' Up! Color Coach and 2013-2015 In Color Cards suggested the combination of Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar and Bermuda Bay. I love tools that make decisions and card making easier!
- The elephant's ear was stamped a second time, snipped and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
- Love that touch of embossing? I used the scallop border from the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folders.
- The card size is 5" x 7". The Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board provided the measurements and a simple way to create a custom envelope, perfect for the 5" x 7" card. Here's my video tutorial on how I create a really simple liner, starting with a 5 1/4" square of patterned paper (2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack).
