I think the Spring Product Release is one of my FAVorites.  The kids + I had the opportunity to vacation in Paris • England •  Amsterdam last fall (def a trip of a lifetime).  My boy was doing a semester abroad in Paris.  I made this card especially for my boy:

This is a new to me color trio:  peach  •  celadon  •  gold  
I happened to spot this while looking through my feedly.  Evidently it made an impression and I do like the fresh look.

I started off with a cantaloupe colored cardstock.  I inked it up with two different shades of ink, on the top 1/3 and the bottom 1/3.  I followed it up with flecks of white paint (Kuretake Gansai Tambi).

I used the largest SugarCut – Postage Stamp frame in gold glitter cardstock.  I layered a smaller rectangle die and ran it through my die cutting machine.  
I combined 2 of the SugarCut – ParisScape’s cut out of celadon cardstock.  I adhered them directly to the Postage Stamp frame.  This help me to center it onto the cardbase.

The SugarCut – Postage Stamp is awesome because it comes with words + more.  I used the ‘Sending’ in white craft foam.   I struggled to figure out where I wanted to put the sentiment, Happy Mail from the Sending Sentiments stamp set.  Then it hit me to adhere it behind the Eiffel Tower.  It’s been stamped in the coordinating ink used on the upper 1/3 of the base panel.

  4. This is just beautiful. I love your ombre background with the gold postage frame!! It just works so well together!!

  5. I didn't realize the backdrop was green until you mentioned your palette (my screen is not always the best), but I really like how it looks. I think this palette looks like a macaron display in a patisserie, so that's right on point with your Parisian cityscape. Thanks for sharing this lovely card with us!
