Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to the March PTI Blog Hop! I couldn't resist playing along with this blog hop as the inspiration photo for this challenge was so beautiful!


The card I made based on this photo came together so quickly!  I LOVED working with these colors and will have to do it again soon!


I first stamped the background with Aqua Mist and Harvest Gold ink.  Let me tell you that I LOVE that Harvest Gold ink!  It stamps wonderfully!  I really, really like this background stamp too, especially that you can so easily use 2 colors to make your own custom backgrounds each time.  I really hope PTI makes more background stamps that work just like this one!


Here is a closeup of the top.  I tucked one of the Banner Border die cuts under a couple of strips of cardstock.  I scored it before I inserted it so that it sticks up slightly to add an interesting element to the card.  Then, I tied Lemondrop twine from The Twinery around the top once.


For the bottom of the card I die cut 3 frames with the new Framed Out #2 die and cut the aqua one in half to adhere on each side of the card.  The sentiment panel is popped up with pop dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy your day!


Supplies (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: BB: Medallion, Framed Out #2
Paper: White, Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist
Ink: Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold
Other: Lemondrop Twine from The Twinery, Banner Border die, Framed Out #2 die
