Curving Scallops with Muted Teal and Light Green

A softly colorful sympathy card.  I chose my card stock colors to bring out the slightly brighter colors in the patterned paper, which (except for the touches of pink) is mostly dark and subdued.  The curving scalloped borders contrast nicely with the straight lines above.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Paper Source sage (light green) and Papertrey Ink (PTI) ocean tides (muted teal).
  • Patterned paper is Craft Smith dark floral 12 x 12" collection (thanks for sharing with me, Vicki!)
  • Embroidery floss is DMC 772.
  • Die is from PTI round off edgers.
  • The sentiment "deepest sympathy" is from Stampabilites card phrases, stamped with PTI fresh snow (white) ink cube, then (after the white ink was dry) restamped with ocean tides.  
  • Technique: With ocean tides ink stamped directly on the green cardstock, the sentiment looked too green; a base layer of white ink solved my problem.
