Quiet Meadow

I love this fun fold card. The flowers are cut with the Meadow Dies from the Pearlescent Specialty Paper. LOVE that paper – it has a soft shine to it but also takes well to the awesome Blending Brushes. You have to try these brushes – they are wonderful. TIP: to clean them, just run under the faucet. I also found a jar that was taller than the brush and stood the brush in water – handle down. It soaked pretty much all of the ink from the brush!

I did use the blending brushes on the flowers and it gives them a really beautiful soft sheen! I also used the blending brushes on the brick background. Love the Blending Brushes!! Did I say that already?

I’m also in love with the 2021-22 IN color ribbons. This card is using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave ribbon. And this new IN color Evening Evergreen is so rich in color and goes beautifully with the Soft Succulent cardstock.
