First things first - I don't necessarily beleive that green and red are Christmas colors only.This is quite obvious from the current look of this blog, no?
A red park bench beneath a soft green tree and a blue sentiment spells spring this time!
I decided to use green envelopes. Red being complementary to green, the effect when you open the green envelope and see the red card inside is delightful - to me at least....
And notice the park bench in green on green - in my world, envelopes should always be decorated.
On some of these cards I stamped the words right below the main image...
On others I stamped on a seperate piece of cardstock and attached, here with some birthday bling added.
As you may notice, I used two different green inks to stamp the tree - not sure if this is called overstamping or shadow stamping but the effect is a fuller tree. The image is first stamped in lime pastel and then in olive pastel (as usual my favorite Chalk Ink from Color Box) - I just wing it, but approximately in the same place.
Thanks for visiting!
