Green Large Dots Card with Purple - Before and After

A new Memory Box die, "tender leaves," inspired me to revisit a card (below) from 18 months ago. One of my earliest designs, it had some nice ideas, but just didn't add up to much. The new card (above), I like!

Scroll down for card details.

Card details (top card):
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink spring moss (light green), simply chartreuse (medium green), ripe avocado (dark green), and plum pudding (purple).
  • Corners are rounded with 1/2" Corner Chomper.
  • Leaf die is Memory Box tender leaves.
  • Sentiment is computer-printed in black ink using Papyrus font.
  • Flowers are Hero Arts, colored with Copic markers. The flower center is a dot of heavy water-color paper, colored with Copic marker.
