Soft Suede Vase


I just thought I'd share a card I made a little while back. It was a quick and easy card to put together and uses the new In Colour Soft Suede in combination with Apricot Appeal. Not a combination I would have thought worked, but I quite like the look of them together with hints of Whisper White.

Here's the card:

I drew some spirals in the centre of some of the flowers with the thin tip of my Apricot Appeal Marker, and some dots in others using the thicker tip.

Apricot Appeal is one of the colours that are being farewelled at the end of August, so if it's a colour you love you'll need to stock up soon. When time gets closer I imagine sales of farewelling colours will become 'while stocks last', so get in quick! There's a link to the chart of colours that will be retiring on the right side of my blog.

Stamps: Best Yet (level 1 hostess set)
Ink: Apricot Appeal Stampin' Write Marker, Basic Black Stampin' Write Journaller
DSP/Card Stock: Hostess Patterns Pack II DSP, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Other: Soft Suede 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Curly Label Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Oval Cutter (non SU)

I also made the same card in Melon Mambo and Very Vanilla, but silly me forgot to take a photo before I gave it away. Oops! It looked very pretty though.

Catch you later,



  1. this is very pretty. I wouldnt have thought that the colour combo would work either but it looks great.

  2. Very nice card and so pretty.
