North Coast Creations Look Back

NCC Bday Honeycomb 02756
Today we are taking another look at the North Coast Creations January release! This is such a fabulous release, with beautiful florals and lovely greetings for all occasions. For my card, I used the Floral Sentiments 2 and two ODBD images that complement it and the paper I used.

On a piece of the designer paper, I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting with the chalk ink in a section of the dp that seemed perfect for it. After die cutting on a curve, I also die cut a border section using the reverse side of the same piece of dp. I stamped the sweet branch image w/ the teal ink, added a hint of color and fussy cut it.On a piece of ivory card stock, I stamped the ODBD honeycomb bg with a combination of the two distress inks and the Memento ink. I added color with Copics in just a few of the honeycombs and sponged the edges with the straw ink. Since the card front was white, I also sponged the edges of it to better coordinate. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to check out the NCC Blog and all of the DT blogs for more inspiration!
