This morning during my workout, I couldn’t help but think about the humidity this summer. If you’re not in central Illinois, you may or may not have had a crazy-humid summer. When the wet air kicks in at 6:15 in the morning, you know it’s extreme.
Anyway, thinking about running with friends… fading… humidity… greenhouses… it’s all connected in there somewhere, but not necessary coherently at 6:15 am during an exhausting workout, right? Right?
I think I mentioned one time that Daffodil Delight is my favorite yellow these days–it goes with everything! Here I put it with Poppy Parade, which is one of the new In Colors.
I’ll let you in on a secret… the Greenhouse Gala paper is actually supposed to match Real Red. But I am so in love with Poppy Parade that I just pretty much ignore the Real Red and go with Poppy Parade. It works for me 🙂
The other trick for this card is that the background is Poppy Parade, and while a very pretty color, it’s pretty dark for writing your greeting. SO… to get around that, the main card is actually Whisper White and the Poppy Parade piece is a panel stuck to the back of the white card stock.
It looks the same on the front, but opens differently than a normal card. If you’ve seen my How To Cut Card Stock Video Tutorial already, then all you need to know is that the Real Red layer for this square card is 4-1/4 x 4-1/4″ and the Whisper White piece is 4 x 8″ and folded in half.
