I originally tried to layer all of these pieces of cardstock on top of each other. It was crazy thick -- too much for my liking. So I went about cutting and piecing, and this is what I ended up with for measurements:
Dapper Denim base at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Very Vanilla side strips at 1 x 5 1/4
Very Vanilla center strip at 1 3/4 x 5 1/4
Mint Macaron at 1 3/4 x 4
Mint Macaron DSP at 1 1/2 x 4
I embossed the center panel with the Seaside Embossing Folder, then sponged the raised lines with Mint Macaron.
I stamped the angelfish with Dapper Denim. I colored the extra stripes with a Crushed Curry marker, then went over each yellow stripe with Wink of Stella. I "winked" the starfish too. It's too bad this sparkle doesn't photograph well, it makes a lovely shine.
I tore three strands of the Burlap Ribbon to create the tie.
I used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the greeting. This card would fit many occasions and I will decide what goes inside when I need to use it! Love versatility!
Thank you to Lisa for the inspiration. I'm going to really enjoy this stamp set! :-)
Have fun stamping today!
