Bright Heart Congrats
I didn't make this card for a particular purpose, I just decided to sit down and create--no color suggestions, no layout, just create on my own. I love these three colors together: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Pacific Point. They are so bright and fun, and they add some boldness to help make this a more all-occasion card instead of just a Valentine's Day card. In fact, I decided to use the "congratulations" stamp from the Sweet Essentials set so that I can use this for a wedding card sometime. I stamped hearts all over my main panel and then layered it on Pacific Point card stock. I then tied some of the new Melon Mambo striped organdy ribbon around it (I wish this ribbon came in more than 3 colors--I love it that much). I put a pinking edge along the bottom of the Daffodil Delight layer (with the Finishing Touches Edgelits die) to play on the chevron pattern of the yellow hearts. I stamped Melon Mambo hearts all over the Melon Mambo card base to give it a subtle pattern before adding my stamped panel and my word banner. I hand-cut the banner and then added a heart that I cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits die and popped it up with a Stampin' Dimensional.
