When I saw the Mojo Monday sketch #463 showing a tall and skinny card, I couldn't help but pull out the Vertical Greetings stamp set, which is a new favorite of mine from the annual catalogue. I thought it would also look lovely paired with the colour combo from Create with Connie and Mary #422.
To mimick the leaves of the topiary, I sponge my Calypso Coral background with one of the stencils from the Seasonal Decorative Masks (2016 Holidays Catalogue, page 43). As I've mentioned in a previous post, those stencils are sized 6" x 6", which means they were a little shorter than my cardfront (my card is sized 3-1/4" x 6-1/2"). I solved the problem by sponging the edge above the stencil, creating a line at the bottom. It adds a pretty design element and it was one of those problems that result in a happy element on the finished card.
For the ribbon accent, the Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon was a close enough match to Calypso Coral to make a great addition to my design. I also used the 2016-2018 In Color enamel shapes in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach. The 2016-2018 Envelope Paper was used to make a matching envelope.
