Coffee And Cards REPLAY with Pretty Perennials Tuesday 16th March 2021. First things first. When you watch the replay of this Facebook Live, please note that the FREE Shipping is now over. It was for one day only and that day has passed. But I hope you will still enjoy the project and video. I also want to remind you that I am taking a couple of weeks off to regroup after the last few weeks. This means that I will not be holding any Facebook or YouTube Lives, but I do have a couple of videos waiting to post, so there will be new content coming.
This is the card we made on Tuesday. If you joined me live you may remember that I chose to make this card using Very Vanilla for a change. I think we often forget that Very Vanilla is a great base for a card, I know I do. The key, for me, when it comes to stamping on Very Vanilla is to remember that it is a ‘warm’ base and that ‘warm’ colours are going to work best on it, but ‘cold’ colours can turn a little muddy.
I decided to be a little brave by using Soft Sea Foam as the embossed layer. This is a really versatile colour as it can be ‘cold’ or ‘warm’ depending on the colours you use with it. I hope you will agree that it works well on this project, both as a stamped colour on Very Vanilla, and as a cardstock. The true colour shows in both.
The finishing touch for this project was to add some of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems. You probably know that these are some of my favourite embellishments (I am keeping my fingers crossed that they make it to the new Annual Catalogue), and it is partly because there are clear gems, which work on ANY colour.
