I am joining in with the Art With Heart Team’s Colour Creations Blog Hop with this Calypso Coral gratitude greeting card.

What you need

The Calypso Coral colour from Stampin’ Ups!® Subtle colour family is our focus and I colour coordinated with a Sahara Sand card base and Soft Suede details. The top layer has been decorated with patterned paper from Happy Forest Friends, a Calypso Coral border and the large mushroom image from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set.

You’re A Classic Card Recipe

It really is an easy card to make. Follow the instructions below.

  3. Cut a 14.3 cm x 3 cm Calypso Coral card stock layer.

  1. I love your Calypso Coral mushroom, Amie – you’ve coloured it so beautifully and the Sahara Sand works really well with Calypso Coral. Love the Basic Broder die edging too, such an elegant touch.

  2. I love toadstools, so I think this is a very cute card Amie. I love how you have paired the Gnome stamp set with the Forest DSP to highlight Calypso Coral.

  3. Gorgeous card Amie and I love the colours you have used in your colouring and coordinate with the DSP. The mushroom looks fabulous!

  4. What a perfect choice for Calypso Coral Amie. Your colouring is just so soft and lovely to go beautifully with that paper.
