So, I am back for this week's Color My Heart Color Dare, yay! I totally missed you guys. This week we get to try our hand at using what I like to call "the forgotten green," Juniper. I NEVER reach for this color when I need a green, let me tell you. It isn't that I don't like it, because I DO. It just isn't ever the green I need, lol.
For some inspiration, I reached into my leftover cuts/stamps. There is literally an entire drawer full to choose from. I pulled out a Pirouette, and ended up with a fabulous card for a wedding this summer! :)
I had played with B1409 Pirouette when it came out in the Fall last year. This was one of the extras that I had left, so I wanted to finally give her the life she deserved, lol. I added a Juniper button, and a dark grey Sparkle. Next, I formed the piece of trim behind the shape using White Daisy and Juniper Cardstock with a strip of black shimmer trim on top! If you like a lot of glitter without all the mess, then this stuff is just what you need! You should have seen me swoon when I first discovered this self-adhesive, non-messy glitter! ;)
I adore this scrolly sweet sentiment. It is found on D1539 The Happy Couple. I used Slate Ink on top of the Slate 5 x 5 card form. Actually, I used Slate intentionally since there is a hint of green in this shade of grey. I thought it would look fantastic with the Juniper--and it does! :)
I added a strip to the inside bottom of the card as well to finish it off nicely.
You can easily make this card at home! There are only 5 Close to My Heart products that you need to go along with your cardstock, and they are all available on my website! You would need the Artiste Cricut Collection in order to cut the shape out like I did, but you can also trim this one by hand. Here is what you will need...
