CI26: Vertical Greetings meets Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes

Published by under cards | Jan 24 2018

 

Hi friends,

It’s great to be back crafting again after two weeks at the beach. We had an amazing time together as a family, enjoying the sun and surf. The kids are growing up so quickly so I’m savouring every ‘family time’ moment we get these days. My oldest is starting his final year at school! Wow.

The trip ended a little suddenly with an unscheduled trip to the ER thanks to my dodgy gall bladder, but that seems to be the way we roll at the moment. I’m having it out in a couple of weeks, so there should be plenty of crafting time in my future.

The recuperation time this week meant I could play along with the latest Colour INKspiration Challenge! Yay. The colours are soooo beautiful – some of my favourites.

But I’ll be honest, I’ve never used them together.

Check out our inspiration image:

Vertical Greetings meets Narrow Note Cards

I decided to pair Vertical Greetings with the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes (new in the latest Occasions catalogue). Wow. These two items are a match made in heaven!

[Hot tip: If you already have the Vertical Greetings stamp set, then order these new note cards & envelopes pronto! You’ll fall in love with the stamp set all over again]

 

I trimmed 1 cm off the card front, which created the perfect window for the sentiment which was stamped on the inside of the card.

 

As per the challenge, colours used were Sahara Sand, Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay and Tranquil Tide.

 

 

‘Lots to Love’ Box

The Narrow Note cards fit inside the new Lots to Love Box framelits (on page 19 of the Occasions catalogue, or you can check it out in my online store here).

I couldn’t resist making a matching box.

 

The front panel is Sahara Sand cardstock and the rear panel is Tranquil Tide. I introduced Bermuda Bay in the ribbon and trim edging, with a touch of Emerald Envy in the stamping.
