It's Tip Top Taupe today for our blog hop at Create with Connie & Mary! Glad you are visiting today and make sure you read all the way through as I'll direct you to the next stop! 

But first, for those of you that subscribed to our new "Create with Connie & Mary Mini Session" last month...thank you! We are now into August and our next monthly session is due to post to subscribers on August 19th. 

So here's my card using Tip Top Taupe Cardstock and Tip Top Taupe Ink:

Isn't the color just lovely when paired with only white? Here are the steps needed to create this card:

  • Card Base: Tip Top Taupe Cardstock measuring 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 5-1/2" and fold. Use the Watercolor Wash background stamp with Tip Top Taupe Ink and stamp in the center of your card base. Wrap White Baker's Twine around the card base about 2" from the top 4 times and tie the ends into a bow. 
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock cut with the Squares Collection Framelits Dies and embossed with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder. Glue to card base about 3/4" from the top using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Layer #3: Tip Top Taupe Cardstock cut with the Squares Collection Framelits Dies. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Layer #4: Whisper White Cardstock cut with the Squares Collection Framelits Dies. Stamp the sentiment using the Birthday Blossoms stamp set with Tip Top Taupe Ink. Add flowers from the Everything Eleanor stamp set using Tip Top Taupe Ink. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Add White Perfect Accents below your stamped layers.
