If I haven't said it before (but I know I have) I love Pintrest! I have so many cards on my Cards I Love board, probably far more than I'll ever make but who cares I love them! One of the cards is similar to this card. Lots of textured scallops, I just love it!!!! I decided to go for lots of browns on this card. I had a customer ask me a couple weeks ago how to use the neutral colors. I understand that, sometimes, especially the less popular ones, it's hard to incorporate them. That's one of the reasons why I love this card. So I only used colors that you'll get in a neutrals assortments: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.
I debated for a long time about how to layer the scallops, 2 layers of one color-lightest to darkest or darkest to lightest, alternating colors, etc. This is what I finally stopped on and I love the way it turned out. I used 4 different embossing folders and the Tasteful Trim die for the scallops. To finish it off I added a button and a greeting. So cute right?! I can't wait to make more cards like this. This is one of those classic card layouts that you can use for any occasion!
