The Minty Fresh Challenge

The Minty Fresh Challenge at Moxie Fab World  
Not too yellow, not too blue, minty green is that soothing shade in between. I agree that this color is soothing and fresh. Golly was I delighted to find I had 2 12" X 12" pieces in my stash. I knew I wanted to heat emboss with white for a crisp look. So I looked at my Pinterest boards for some design inspiration.

Determined not to spend too much time there, I scrolled through "Cards I Want To Recreate" board and a flourish caught my eye. The beautiful card I recently pinned from Susan at Simplicity. This is the flourish that inspired this card.

I do have a collection of flourish stamps that I love, with a tiny butterfly and sentiment from Gina K, I stamped and heat embossed this card. I punched 14 tiny hydrangeas, glued 2 pieces together, shaped them using a stylus, added the pearls to the center then attached all 7 of them. I'm pleased with it and it was so quick and easy. I'm disappointed that it doesn't show up as crisp on the blog - due to the background being so similar.

I'll be back with another post for another challenge at CASology.

  1. Your other minty fresh card was very well executed. However, this card is simply fabulous. Very beautiful with the embossing and the flowers popping off the page. Very nice job!

  2. Simple and absolutely stunning!
