Project 66: Little bit of lime green




Earlier this year I found myself making a lot of green cards, which isn't a color in my top 5. It may not even be in my top 10. But here we all are and I seem to have made more green cards without really thinking about it!

The headline card followed a layout similar to this one I found on Pinterest. I mixed it up slightly to work with the greeting and ribbon that I had. The scattered gem effect is really nice against the busy paper. I'll be doing that again.


Next I used the scraps from the headline card against an embossed background. I also used a lattice-style ribbon that I have had for at least 2 years and I don't think ever used. Score. Candies at the bottoms to balance the layout a bit.



The next two used pattern cards, which I used to use a lot in early crafting days but I don't use as often any more. Maybe I'm more adventurous, maybe I forgot I had them until today. One of the two.

Because the papers were so busy I kept them simple and just used an embossed thank you for each of them. Big flower and 2 types of sticky ribbon on one, normal ribbon and candies on the other.

Nice and simple. It actually is pretty easy being green.

  2. Candi that looks like a brad! AWESOME I tell you. And the thank you is an old one that I've had for ages that I thought should get a little action. And yes, I'm only using the new machine now!
