Warm Welcome for #pp623

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Claire's fun  Colour Challenge over @ The Paper Players.  Use Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Highland Heather & White!  Please click the hyperlink or the image below to visit their blog challenge and soak in the inspiration!

I love to create a few all occasion cards at the beginning of the year.  This one is a baby card or a Welcome Little One card using the Warm Welcome Bundle, #160704 from the new January - April 2023 Mini Catalogue.

***  The Trix *** 

*  Colour Blocking - create a bold band of colour with scraps of cardstock, it doesn't matter if they're the same size.  

*  Proportion - I tried to match the sizes of scraps to the size of the presents, and add the sentiment near the bottom, the widest part, hoping for some balance and visual continuity.

*  Repeat the colours - Stamp the presents from the Warm Welcome Stamp set, #160698 with Memento Black ink, then colour with Stampin' Blends Markers.  Stamp the sentiment with Orchid Oasis.  Colour Rhinestone Basic Jewels, #144220 with the Stampin' Blends Markers.  Add a piece of Parakeet Party Baker's Twine, #159195   

*  Create a focal image base with a scalloped die from the Scalloped Contours Dies, #155560.  I used the Warm Welcome Dies, #160703 to die cut the presents and popped them up with dimensionals.
