Mixed Bunch - Pool Party & Black

We used this color combo at my upline's house yesterday, so I had to try using it on my own card.  I used a lot of products from the Occasions Mini.  One of which...the Adorning Accents Embossing can't see.  It's on the black curvy piece.  The greeting might look a little strange, but it's covering up a boo-boo.  I wasn't going to re-do the entire card (although I did think about it).

We used post-it notes to hold our edgelits in place this morning.  Works like a charm! Something else I learned is that for a card like this, cut the curve on the white card stock first.  Then, layer it onto a rectangle of black card stock that has about a 1/2 inch edge showing that you can cut off.  It's easier to line it up that way.  Run it through with the embossing folder last.

Here's what I used:

  1. 'LOVE this card...and all the others you made using the Mixed Bunch stamp set. When I first saw that set & matching punch, I wasn't sure I "needed" it, but it looks like I do!!
    Praying for your family, (and especially your son), as he has surgery next week. Our God is faithful and He will carry you through! Hugs!
