Grateful Bunch Sneak Peek Part 4

Enough of the white, right? I was thinking of one of my young teenage grand-daughters when I made this one, a tall and skinny card that fits into a business size 10 envelope.    

I had seen somewhere on Pinterest, a year or so ago, a card that had these colours - Old Olive, Melon Mambo & Basic Gray. I wish now I had pinned it... I wanted to give it a try using the Grateful Bunch Bundle. (I'm wondering if I should have stamped the butterflies on the bottom, rather than the top, or over the entire green, both top and bottom).

Since there is no die for the dotted leaves, I fussy cut them out with my Paper Snips.

Here is the side view. you can see that rather than layering the Melon Mambo and Basic Gray onto the card, I cut 1/4" or wider strips and attached them tightly, side by side. It saves on cardstock and is a great way to use up scraps! I love the lace stamp by the way.

For the inside, I used the second line of the sentiment, and stamped a border with it in alternating Basic Gray & Melon Mambo ink.

I bet this card would look good in soft Subtle colours, or Regal colours for a more mature colour palette as well. I think my grand-daughter will love this card.

I used the following to create this card, with the exception of the new "Grateful Bunch" Bundle.
