Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride is my chosen colour combination for this sweet, feminine, thank you card. I have drawn inspiration from a couple of challenges. 

SIP-Challenge-194-Tic-Tac-Toe-NEW-800-791x1024, A Good Day stamp set, Thank youThe first is this Tic-Tac-Toe challenge by Stamp Ink Paper and I chose the top line of Subtles, Circle and Ribbon. So off I went to my Subtles collection and came up with a pretty colour combo.

The next challenge was this lovely sketch from Sunday Stamps.

I layered a panel of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper 10.1×14.4 cm on a Mint Macaron card base. The 3 Whisper White panels were cut at 9.3 x 4cm. Then I embossed each of these separately.  To get this look, take your Mint Macaron ink pad direct to the embossing folder and ink the raised side. Then run it through the Big Shot. This embosses with the colour showing in the indents. I love this method of quickly adding colour to projects. 

Tip:

Clean the embossing folder prior to running through each time so the ink doesn’t transfer onto the next strip of cardstock.  Also use Thick Whisper White cardstock as it doesn’t crease. 

I stamped the sentiment and coloured in the leaves with a Mint Macaron marker. The ribbon has been layered using double sided tape. 

The leaves from the Framed Elements were embossed with White embossing powder. Then I coloured them in with the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend. Doing this allows you to use it on so many projects by just colouring it to tie in with your colour scheme.
