Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "A Monochromatic Color Scheme".
  2. Create a project "using Baker's Twine".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Monochromatic project using some Baker's Twine".

I was in a hurry so everything that I used for this card was already out on my table top or in my scrap bin. I love monochromatic cards! So much fun! So I went with my all-time favorite color Pool Party! You have no idea how relieved I was when I saw Stampin’ Up was keeping Pool Party.

Back to the card... I started off with a piece of Pool Party (the best color EVER!) card stock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored it at 4-1/4”. Next I adhered a piece of Pool Party Core’dinations that was 3-1/2” x 5-1/4” and already textured with the Honeycomb embossing folder and sanded. I cut a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper 1/2” x 5-1/4” and adhered it just above the textured card stock.

I cut a scrap of Sycamore Street DSP down to 1-1/2” x 3-3/4”. I stamped the greeting from Perfectly Penned onto the DSP in Midnight Muse ink and used Paper Snips to cut the right side in a dove-tail shape. I adhered this onto the card front with Anywhere Glue Stick on the left side and a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right side.  Next I took some of the flowers from the Pop Up Posies Designer kit, stacked them up, pierced them with my Paper Piercing Tool and Stampin’ Pierce Mat and added a brad from the kit in the center of the flower.

I fluffed up the petals then sprayed the flower with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Sprtiz before adhering it onto the left side of the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally I just wrapped a long piece of Pool Party Baker’s Twine around the card a few times and tied it into a bow. 

If you have a chance head on over to the Friday Mashup to see what the rest of the design team has created and maybe even play along!
