Make it Mailable 13-13 (and a Sneak Peek!)
There is so much beautimus schtuff in the new Occasions Catalog, that I can't settle on any one product! I feel like a butterfly, flitting from one pretty flower to the next, not landing on any one blossom for more than a split second.
Case in point - this card. I tried to use everything from the pre-order on just this one card, lol. Well, four products, anyway. Not that I exaggerate or anything.
Watercolor Paper in Jet Black StazOn and colored with an Aqua Painter in Pacific Point ink. The stems/leaves are Pear Pizzazz and the flower centers are Crushed Curry. (Since it was going to be covered with the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, it needed a vibrant blue to overcome the muting effect of the vellum.) The Gold Baker's Twine complements the gold foil hearts embossed on the vellum.
That Watercolor Wonder Designer Series paper is one of those rarities for me.......I love BOTH sides of ALL the sheets. That's going to make for some tough choices in the future, I'm sure! But with 12 designs to love, I think I'll cope somehow, haha. And, believe it or not, I love the chevrons, as well! (I know, right? What's up with that?!) Maybe because they aren't as overpowering as some previous designs?
I can't link to any of the new products yet, because they won't be available until January 3rd, but if you would like a copy of the new Occasions Catalog when it is released, let me know and I'll have one sent to you. Trust me, you don't want to miss any of the awesomeness! I know I say that every time. Have I ever steered you wrong???
