MIM #100

Just popping in to post a card and packaging for this weeks Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink.  This is the very first time that I have stamped with The Sweet Life and boy do I ever feel rusty when it comes to multi-step stamping (let alone stamping on a teeny tiny die cut)!  This is also my very first time participating in a MIM too.  I originally pulled out another set for this challenge (that will be a post for tomorrow).  With that card, try as I might, it was not meant to be anything larger than a typical A2 sized card. 

I tried many different color combos and finally decided on Melon Berry (base), Berry Sorbet (2cd step), and Hibiscus Burst (third step).  The leaves were stamped in Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse.

Here is my packaging.  I used a large glassine bag, a PTI Half and Half die (which I wound up completely covering up) and a PTI Mat Stack 4 die stamped with the matching stamp set.  I then placed one more die cut and stamped rose to finish everything off!

Thanks for stopping by!

The flowers on the card are lovely. They have real depth to them, which can be hard to achieve – even if they look that way in real life, it doesn't always get conveyed in a photo. Thanks for the information and inspiration!

Great card and packaging Linda! I've never used that colour combo before and it really looks lovely. Your stamping is spot on, it took me an age to get those roses right at the beginning!
