Hello friends and Happy Wednesday!

Today card is all about the versatility of the Nature’s Harvest Bundle.  I couldn’t resist cutting this patterned paper design from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper pack.  I hope my photography does it justice. This paper is really beautiful and if you love to create with lots of blue, like I do, this is for you. I’ve designed quite a few cards with some of the patterns and they are all so much fun to use, not to mention the color and design inspiration they give.

Here’s how this one came together:

  • I started with a standard A-2 top fold card base cut 11″ x 4 1/4″.
  • I like to use thin layers, but you don’t have to.  The bottom Misty Moonlight layer is 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″.
  • The patterned paper layer is 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.
  • The scalloped Misty Moonlight layer is a die cut from the Scalloped Contours Dies. (If you didn’t pick these up, you should seriously consider adding them to your die collection. I promise you will use them time and again.  They are in the current Annual Catalog on page 158.
  • The Basic White cardstock top layer measures 2″ x 3 1/4: and fits perfectly inside the scalloped frame.
  • There’s a small background stamp in the Nature’s Harvest stamp set that’s inked with Misty Moonlight and stamped off once to get a light background shadow.
  • I stamped the small flower cluster from the stamp set in Early Espresso ink.
  • With my Misty Moonlight, Soft Succulent and Daffodil Delight Blends, I colored the stamped image.
  • The Misty Moonlight stamped sentiment is die cut with a perfectly sized frame in the Harvest Die set. The die also embosses a subtle border around the frame. It gives the sentiment frame a clean, classic look.
  • I finished my design with a few scattered Silver Metallic Pearls which should be a staple in your embellishment archive.
