Hello friends!

Today’s card is a CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) from the Annual Catalog. The catalog card is a Slimline card. My card is an A-2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″), and I changed the sentiment and sentiment focal point punched layers by using different patterns from the Inked Botanicals 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper.

I was attracted to the Inked Botanicals Suite as soon as I saw it. I especially love the images and clean sentiment fonts in the Inked &
Tiled Stamp Set. This Suite includes a stamp and punch Bundle. The punches caught my eye also. There are a lot of fun projects you can complete with these punches. Who doesn’t love a unique punch Bundle?

I love the colors in the Inked Boanicals Designer Series Paper. Although I’ve used three colors, Pool Party and Petal Pink (the lighter versions of Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon), give a more subtle look to the Suite’s color palette.

Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper

I just realized something about todsy’s colors… Lost Lagoon and Calypso Coral are “Complementary Colors” (they’re opposite on the Color Wheel), along with a “yellow” (Crushed Curry). Here’s the rule: When in doubt, go with a yellow”! It works!

OK, I promise, no more rules!

So, pull out that fabulous Product Suite, stamp some pretty botanical images, add a layered sentiment cluster and a beautiful ribbon, and create something to say “hello” to a treasured friend!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
