Paper Players 237

I don't play at Paper Players as often as I'd like but I just had to make time for Leanne's fabulous sketch this week.

I've been feeling crook today, so decided to go for a bright get well card. In my head, this card was always going to use Tangelo Twist even though the bright oranges are not usually my first choice of colour. Hello Honey seemed a natural companion for Tangelo Twist and both are sponged onto the background of the leaves.

The embossing folder is one I bought cheap in a bargain bin at The Warehouse and it was just perfect for this card. What's really great about it is the size: it easily fits A5. It's a shame more embossing folders aren't just a couple of centimetres bigger each way.

Update: Delighted to have this card picked as A Cut Above at Paper Players.

Card: Black, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, Whisper  White
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents and Say it in Style.
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey
Other: Spellbinders Dragon Delight die, Couture Jazmyne embossing folder, Chevron zigzag embossing folder, Banner punch, black marker for edge colouring the banners, black rhinestones, sponges
