My Project for Kylie's International Blog Highlights - February 2021

I love that today is February 1st!  In my part of the world (Alberta, Canada) it means our days are getting longer and we have about 6 weeks of potentially cold weather left as it usually starts to warm up mid-March.  And when I say cold I mean -20 degrees Celsius cold or colder.  The type of cold when you walk outside it feels like the air freezes in your lungs and your nostrils stick together - that type of cold!!

I was designing a Thank You card for my Grandma and realized it would work perfectly to showcase in Kylie's International Blog Highlights for February.  

My Grandma loves the colour purple, so all of my cards to her always have the colour purple on it somewhere, whether the card base itself or the accents.

For today's card:
    • I started with a Granny Apple Green card base and then layered it with Rich Razzleberry which I think coordinates beautifully.  
    • I dry embossed the Rich Razzleberry layer with the Old World Embossing Folder.  
    • The strip of designer series paper (patterned paper) is from the Berry Delightful DSP, which you can earn for FREE with a $120 product order (before shipping & tax).  It's considered a Level 2 item as you get the 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper as well as the Berry Blessings coordinating stamp set.  
Anyways, back to my card, so I layered the patterned paper onto a piece of Granny Apple Green so that it contrasted nicely with the Rich Razzleberry base.  I coloured the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Granny Apple Green blends as well as the Basic Rhinestones.  The Thank You is from the SALE-a-bration set Heal Your Heart and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and then fussy cut.  It is popped up on dimensionals.  To finish off the card, I put a strip of the patterned paper along the bottom inside the card.
