Tangerine Flower Hello Card

Happy Friday! Today I have a fun bright card to share with you. I was immediately intrigued with the colors from the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary to use: Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango. These colors are very happy together and I thought they would make a nice Hello Card. This Tangerine Flower Hello Card is also entered into the Bright and Beautiful challenge at Crafting for all Seasons.

Sometimes when working with three bold colors I find it easier to keep the layout simple so the colors can really shine. I used a fun patterned paper that wasn't too busy. Then decided to use the tangerine flower for a pop of color and silver sequin ribbon for some sparkle. So even though the layout is simple it's definitely not a boring card.

All supplies used are by Stampin' Up! and they include:
  • Paper: Whisper White, Cucumber Crush and Pacific Point cardstock. Patterned paper from Pretty Petals paper stack. 
  • Stamps: Flowering Flourishes, Petal Potpourri and Watercolor Wishes. 
  • Inks: Stampin' Pads in Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango.
  • Other Stuff: Flower Medallion punch, silver sequin ribbon, Tangerine Tango candy dot, large scallop edgelit and stampin' dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. You are absolutely right Andrea - this is most definitely not a boring card! I love your layout (the patterned paper is a favourite of mine!) and your card balances each of this week's colours perfectly, with just the right amount of white to pull them together. Love the sentiment positioned along the side too - great use of this stamp. Thanks for joining us for the Thursday challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
