Lacy Birthday Card - Visit

I’ve wanted to play some more with the Detailed Floral Thinlits™ Dies ever since I made the card for my Real Life Color Coach Color of the Week: Sweet Sugarplum article.  So… It’s time for lots of lacy-ness, starting with a Lacy Birthday Card.

This card features consolidated Tertiary Colors: Pool Party from the Blue-Green Color Group, Melon Mambo from the Red-Violet Color Group and Crushed Curry from the Yellow-Orange Color GroupThese colors create a Triadic Color Scheme.  Notice how I’m ignoring the rest of the colors in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I chose the three colors to stand out from the rest and am ignoring the others, as I did in my article, Sweet Sugarplum Fiesta Triad Card.

I used a Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin’ Pad for the frame of the greeting.  Bermuda Bay is also in the Blue-Green Color Group, and so has no impact on the color scheme.

The card is 4-1/4” x 11”, which is easier to die-cut.  The DSP is the backing to bring the card front to the full size of 4-1/4” x 4-1/2”.  The best way to adhere the DSP to the die-cut card front is to use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen and draw a very thin line around the outer edges.  Press the card front face down on a Silicone Craft Sheet to make sure it sticks to itself.  The glue dries quickly, but not instantly.

This combination is good for Birthday, Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Celebration, Congratulations, Thank You and Get Well cards and scrapbook pages.  Check out more Lacy-ness in the next week.
