Real Life Color Coach Color of the Week: Pool Party

Pool Party Delicate Ornaments Card - Visit

Pool Party is one of my favorite colors and is a Tint in the Green-Blue Color Group. I’m very fond of using Pool Party with snowflakes for Christmas and Winter, but the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits™ Dies were irresistible! The Monochromatic Color Scheme includes Bermuda Bay, the Hue of the group, and Island Indigo, the group’s Shade. Silver, of course, is a Neutral.

I kept the open pattern of the Delicate Ornaments Die and adhered two to the Bermuda Bay background. An alternative would be to back the ornament with card stock from another member of the Green-Blue Color Group or with Silver Foil Paper, but I wanted the lacy effect of having the background show through. I stamped the Whisper White Medium Envelope with the coordinating image from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and a Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad.

In addition to Christmas Cards, this combination is good for everything in my universe: Birthday, Sympathy, Friendship, All-Occasion, and whatever other cards you can think of!  Pages, too!
