Colour Creations - Shaded Spruce

Hi everyone, here we are at week 45 of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop only 5 more weeks to go. Wow where has this year gone.
Today our colour is Shaded Spruce and beautiful green colour and as green is my favourite colour I didn't find it hard to come up with a project. I chose to use the Tropical Chic stamp set and dies along with the matching DSP for this card. I also used a fancy fold to show case this card.
I started with a Granny Apple green card and the shaded spruce is in the DSP and the ink used to stamp the leaves.I stamped my leaves onto Granny Apple Green card before cutting them out and my flowers were stamped in Melon Mambo. I'm so glad that all of what I used will be carrying over into the 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue.
I used the layering square dies for the front of my card and the stitched rectangles for my sentiment.

I placed my Square on to dimensionals to give it more depth, but i glued the leaves on flat and then used more dimensionals for the sentiment.
I stamped more leaves on the writing panel on the back of the card. I will be writing a tutorial for this card on my FACEBOOK Group so keep an eye out for it in early May. (Probably Mother's Day Sunday) All the items used in the project are in the current 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue and will be carrying over to the new 2019-2020 Catalogue. If you would like to purchase any or all of the items used here please give me a call, email or PM me so that I can help you.

Bye for now
