Fresh Cuts Thanks

For this card, I used a set from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog called “Fresh Cuts.” The catalog will be out on August 11.

I inked up the image with Sahara Sand, and then I used a Certainly Celery marker to color all of the leaves. It's rather amazing to me that I can hardly tell the difference between River Rock and Certainly Celery – I suppose because there was Sahara Sand underneath it. I sponged the edges of the cardstock with Sahara Sand, also. I tried to bring out the "tan-ness" of the Sahara Sand by mounting it on Close to Cocoa, since I have no Sahara Sand cardstock. I added three brads to that layer. Then I mounted it on Dimensionals and layered it onto River Rock cardstock. The sentiment is stamped with Sahara Sand.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
