This week we are taking our inspiration from the Bright & Beautiful Suite

I decided to take the layout from the above sample on page 14 for my project today, with the fun fringe trim. I also have a sneak peak for you, of a new paper pack from the forthcoming 2023 Septemer-December Mini Catalogue, called Garden Walk. It is a 6" x 6" pack with some lovely coordinating prints, including some for Christmas, but I prefer the pretty florals. The colours included are Pretty Peacock, Poppy Parade, Calyspo Coral, Garden Green and  Wild Wheat.

I chose the pretty rose floral paper (my favourite in the pack) and a coordinating Pretty Peacock print. I started by cutting a card size piece of each print and then cutting each on the diagonal, which gives you 2 cards. You could of course alternate the prints, but I didn't want to cover the pretty rose design too much.  I decided on one as a friendship card and the other as a birthday card.

Although it isn't one of the listed colours, I thought Flirty Flamingo went well with the print, as it isn't as bold as Calypso Coral, but there are similiar tones in the small flowers. I used the fringe die from the Beautiful Balloons Dies with the Flirty Flamingo strip and added the resulting fringe to the reverse side of the floral print. The Pretty Peacock print was adhered directly to the card and then the floral print with the attached fringe. My tip for this step is to ensure the fringe at the top corner finishes at a space between the cuts, so that when you trim the edges, you don't end up with a tiny piece that falls off (as happened on the first one I made).  A 3/4" strip of the Pretty Peacock stripe was added underneath the fringe and is half the width of the the fringe.  I added a faux bow of Gold 1/8" Trim under each greeting label, which adds some sparkle and a sprinkle of Iridescent Pastel Gems.

I finished both cards inside with a Pretty Peacock mat with a narrow border. At the bottom is a piece of the floral paper and small strip of Flirty Flamingo fringe for a fun touch.
