Happy Friday! Karla asked us to create a project featuring our favorite new Stampin' Up! color for our Fabulous Friday projects for the Sisters in Stamping blog this week. I decided to use Shaded Spruce because I love anything green! I paired it with melon mambo and soft sea foam (another new color) to create this Get Well card featuring the Healing Hugs stamp set.
Here is a close-up of the flower image - how cool is it that a single stamp can look so dimensional? I did fussy-cut it after stamping and popped it up on top of the leaves. The melon mambo pairs beautifully with shaded spruce, don't you think? For just a bit of contrast I used the new soft sea foam to mat the stamped panel and wrapped it with some linen thread to complete this clean and simple card.
To jazz up the inside of the card I stamped another foliage image from the stamp set on the inside of the card using the shaded spruce ink. I like the simplicity and think it adds a nice touch.
Here is another view of my card - I really love this stamp set and new Shaded Spruce color. I see it being used on a lot of Christmas cards. For even more new color inspiration, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
