I've titled this post based on a conversation I had with Wendy a couple of weeks ago. She said, when we were discussing summer cards and colours, you don't really do green or yellow do you? That got me thinking I really don't do I?
Therefore I was determined to make a card in a nice soft apple green beloved by others but shunned by me.
I started with the green card which i embossed using the A4 Darice tumbling leaves embossing folder and lightly inked, to give some more definition, in moss green ink. This is matted onto white then a forest green card.
I die cut the strip at the side using 2 of the dies from Spellbinders Bracket Borders 2, a filigree section and an edge. I removed the edge die and inked through the filigree section with the moss green to give a softer edge. The centre piece, used as a ribbon threader, is cut from spellbinders elegant labels four through which I threaded a soft and darker green ribbon. This piece was foam mounted onto the die cut strip and a messy bow and hatpin added.
Finally I hand cut, and mounted to match, a banner and added the sentiment from Crafters Companion sentimentals range.
Does the green work for me, it's up to you to decide!
