Tempting........Turquoise?

I know that turquoise isn't the first color that comes to mind when you're thinking "love" but aren't you just sick of pink and red??? This card uses the bold brights colors and is so easy to make! Here's the steps:
  1. The card base is Tempting Turquoise. Cut a 8-1/2 x 11 piece of card stock in half to make it 4-1/2 x 11 and score and fold it at 5-1/2.
  2. The blue piece at the bottom is Brilliant Blue, another Bold Brights color. It measured 2x5-1/2 before using the eyelet border punch along the bottom. Numbered List
  3. The ribbon is from the new Occasions Mini Catalog and is white satin. Adhere a 6-1/2" piece to the front by wrapping it around the edges of the blue piece and securing with snail adhesive on the back.
  4. The floral border at the top of the blue piece is rub-ons. Apply any design you like!
  5. Adhere the blue piece to the bottom of the card.
  6. Tie a 4-1/2" piece of the white satin ribbon on to the strip across the front.
  7. Using Versamark Ink, stamp the heart image from the "Wagon Full of Fun" set (also in the new Occasions Mini Catalog) twice: once to a scrap of the Brilliant Blue and once to a scrap of the Tempting Turqoise.
  8. Emboss the images with white embossing powder.
  9. Trim the images and adhere to the card. The turquoise heart was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  10. Stamp the oval sentiment from the "Welcome Home" set in Brilliant Blue ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card and stock. Using the two-way glue pen, apply Dazzling Diamonds to the scrolls in the image.
  11. Cut out the sentiment using the large oval punch.
  12. Cut out the scallop oval from Brilliant Blue card stock using the new scallop oval punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog and adhere to the card.
  13. Using the Uni-Ball Gel Pen, draw "dots" in the corners of the card as shown.

Have any questions??? That's what I'm here for!! Please give me a ring or send me a message--I look forward to hearing from you!
