Global Design Project #255

Hello and welcome to my blog

Today I'm sharing my card for the Global Design Project #255 - this week is a theme challenge.
This card has been running around my head since I got my hands on the Forever Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper. The whole suite is amazing but I decided to keep it simple and just use the Forever Fern stamp set with one of the elements from the Forever Gold Specialty Paper.  I took my colour inspiration from the Forever Greenery designer series paper using Pretty Peacock, Pear Pizzazz, Just Jade and Soft Sea Foam inks. 
The thick whisper white card base measures 14.8cm x 29.6cm scored @ 14.8cm. Using the second smallest stitched circle die, I made a few marks with a pencil in the middle of the card front so I knew where to stamp. I think the speckled stamp adds a bit of texture to the background. When I was happy with the way it looked I added the foil element with liquid glue which hides the hot mess in the centre.  I stamped the sweet sentiment from Forever Fern in Pretty Peacock on a stitched shape circle and layered that on to a Pretty Peacock scalloped circle using mini dimensionals - I love the pop of colour! This was added to the centre of the gorgeous gold element with mini dimensionals.

I decided to make a video to show how quick and easy this card is to make. This time I used all blue inks; Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue. As you can see I made this one a birthday card using one of the sentiments from Fancy Phrases. 

Do you have a favourite? I think mine is the blue one but I'd love to know what you think.
