Today I’m casing the catalogue and sharing with you my simplified version of the Stampin’ Up! original found on page 97. I’ve pulled out my Stitched Stars dies as they haven’t seen any love in a while and paired them with the Playing With Patterns DSP.
The original card uses Silver Foil and embossing folders for texture as you can see below.
As you can see I kept to a blue base but used Night of Navy instead of Misty Moonlight and used Costal Cabana and Calypso Coral as my other colours. I left off the twine as I want a quick card which was easy to replicate for when you need those last minute birthday cards.
I also used the Pick A Label Punch (my current favourite product) to stamp my greeting on which came from the Rustic Retreat stamp set.
So which do you prefer the Stampin’ Up! original or my simplified version?
