Good Sunday morning all! Think a very pale sage green and white for this one as the photographs are not picking up the true colour. It is a gorgeous green, very soft and pastel, but from my stash I'm afraid. I started by simply debossing the outer ring from the Classic Adorned Square Noble die set into my pale sage green card. I used the outer ring also, but only with the embossing mat so no actual cutting was done. I cut around it leaving a wide border and added flatback pearls to the corners. Next I cut four of the Caribbean corners in white card using the outer cut ring as well. I glued them into place on the inside of the debossed square. Next I cut the inner design from the Classic Adorned Square out of the pale green card. I backed it in white this time and mounted it in the centre in a diamond orientation. I stamped my sentiment on white card and inked lightly around it with Bundled Sage distress ink. I used the centre die from the Italian Decorative frames set and cut a frame for my sentiment. I backed it in green and added mounting foam to the back of the frame. I seated it over my sentiment and cut away the excess card. I added my sentiment in the centre of the card to complete the focal element. I finished off the card with my usual matting and layering. I decided not to doll it up with flowers so you can see how it might be used for either male or female recipients, but you certainly could add some floral embellishments if you prefer to easily change it. The finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.
