I knew I wanted to incorporate the quilted lines of the bed cover, the straight lines of the layout and of course the very elegant looking color combo from today’s inspiration piece. Here is what I came up with:


I picked Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky and Whisper White as my colors.

Bordering Blue and Close to Cocoa were a little closer to the inspiration piece, but I thought this combo was more elegant and went with that.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock folded in half.

Adhered to that is a 3 7/8″ square of textured Soft Sky cardstock with a dotted white gel pen border.

For the center layers I took a 3 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and scored it with my Scor-Pal every 1/2″ diagonally both ways to get my  grid lines. Next I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs over it in Soft Sky and sponged the edges heavily, the rest of the cardstock lightly in the same color.

It was layered on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Chocolate Chip and the edges were paper pierced. 5/8″ wide Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon was tied around both layers before those were attached to the card base.

I stamped Thank you from Holiday Blitz in Chocolate chip on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with my 1 1/4″ circle punch. That was layered on a 1 3/8″ chocolate chip and a sponged and dotted Soft Sky scallop circle before the inner circle was paper pierced.

I stamped the small flower from Baroque Motifs in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White cardstock, cut it out adhered it to the circular layers with dimensionals and added a Circular Ice Rhinestone brad in the flower’s center. The sentiment layers were attached to the card with dimensionals.
