The most time consuming part of producing this card was the coloring.  And that is not very much.  I was pleasantly  surprised with how it turned out.

 

 

This card measures 4 1/4 X 4 1/4.  So it will fit in a regular A2 envelope.  I love square cards in that it makes cutting the layers very easy and doesn’t challenge my math skills.

I stamped the Magnolia with Soft Suede ink.  I like the softer look it gives to the flower.  I colored the stem with Crumb Cake and the leaves with the Dark Mossy Meadow.  For the flower, I colored the center and some of the defining lines with the Light So Saffron.  So Saffron is one of the NEW Stampin’ Blends available in the new annual catalog.  Of course I snapped all of the  new ones up right away.

Even though I used So Saffron Card Stock and Stampin’ Blends, I used Crushed Curry Ink for the Hello stamp.  I wanted it to be a bit stronger color to go with the darkness of the Mossy Meadow leaves.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I really appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday.  The complete supply list is at the bottom of the page.
