Krazy about Kiwi Kiss!

I have to confess…I am just crazy about the color “Kiwi Kiss”. Gaining my design inspiration from the recent SCC220, I decided to put the Kiwi Kiss Patterns Designer Series Paper to the test. I selected three different patterns to show how color can unite a design.
  • Select three contrasting patterns of Kiwi Kiss Patterns Designer Series Paper. Select one pattern to be the center strip. Cut it 3/4ths of an inch wide. Cut two 1 ¼” strips from each of the other patterns. Cut each strip a little shorter than your card base. Adhere to Whisper White card stock so that there are small white stripes between each patterned strip. Trim if necessary and attach to your Kiwi Kiss card base.
  • Ink the Flowers in Silhouette stamp with Kiwi Kiss ink and stamp onto Whisper White. Mat onto Kiwi Kiss. Use the Ticket Corner Punch to add interest. Mat this onto So Saffron, and once again use the ticket corner punch. Adhere to your card base.
  • Ink the Great Friend sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink. Stamp onto Whisper White and punch with the Scallop Oval Punch. Punch a second oval out of Kiwi Kiss, using the Large Oval Punch. Adhere the scalloped sentiment to the Kiwi Kiss oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add So Saffron ribbon for extra pizzazz. Position the sentiment oval and adhere with SNAIL adhesive.
  • As a finishing touch that mimics the flower pattern, a Very Vanilla button from the Button Latte collection was readied with a small “thread” of Kiwi Kiss paper (a tip I learned from Mary Fish of Stampin’ Pretty). A Mini Glue Dot holds it in place.
