Colour INKspiration #CI53 - Dear Doily Thank You Card

Hello and welcome to my blog!

It is time for another Colour INKspiration crew blog hop!

Again we are using beautiful colours. Just check out the beautiful inspiration photo below!

I just love navy and green together, and navy and pink together! So this is ticking quite few boxes for me. Anyone that knows me knows I wear a lot of navy!

Dear Doily is one of my favourite stamp sets at the moment. 
So I as soon as I saw the colour INKspiration photo I knew I had to use it for this challenge.

I started with a Bermuda Bay card base that measures 21cm x 14.9cm - scored and folded in half. On the top of that I glued a piece of Night of Navy card stock measuring 10cm x 14.4cm. 

I then cut a piece of Whisper White Card stock that measures 9.7cm x 14.1cm.  Then stamped the image using the Stamparatus. First I coloured the stem in Mint Macaron and stamped it on the Whisper White. Then I coloured the flowers in Petal Pink and stamped again with the Stamparatus. The Stamparatus is the Perfect tool for colouring one image in with two different colours.

I then tied the Whisper White Bakers Twine around the bottom half of the card twice with a bow on the left hand side. and secured with Glue Dots™️.

I stamped the Sentiment from Dear Doily in Night of Navy ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I cut it out with the Layering Circle Framelits™️ and also a scalloped circle from the same Framelit™️ set in Whisper White. I glued the sentiment circle to the scallop circle. I the used dimensionals to attach to the left hand side of the Whisper White piece with the floral stem on it.

To create the Night of Navy sentiment piece I rubbed the Night of Navy piece of card stack with the embossing buddy and then stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark™️.  I then used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits™️ Dies to cut the sentiment out. I then made this rectangle smaller by moving the rectangle die down to create a better fitting rectangle for this sentiment.

I also cut the smaller doily out from the Doily Builder Framelits™️. Cut this little doily on half. Then attached this to the back of the Night of Navy sentiment with glue.

I then attached this to the base of the circular sentiment with dimensionals.

I finished the card off by placing three Mint Macaron Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins around the floral stem.

I hope you have enjoyed reading how I put this pretty card together. I truly love this gorgeous Stamp and Framelit™️ set.
