Today is National Strawberry Shortcake Day – YUMMY!  Of course, the best way to celebrate this day is to devour strawberry shortcake with every meal, but the next best way to celebrate is to use it as our color inspiration for the day.

Color Combo 06.14.19

Today I am featuring a project using So Saffron, Real Red, and Whisper White as my color combination.  These colors perfectly match with our theme for today and are so bright and reminiscent of summer.


Today I created a “Thanks” card and used one of my new favorite dies, the detailed Stitched Lace Dies, as the my focal point in today’s project.  Isn’t it beautiful?!

I’m also using the Well Written Dies for the whimsical flowers and sentiment.  It is important to use a contrasting color when placing a sentiment over the lace cardstock.  Otherwise the words kind of blend into the lace.


The background paper was created by spraying rubbing alcohol on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then adding drops of So Saffron and Real Red ink on the wet paper, tilting it in various directions to get the flow of color that I wanted.
