Corny card - and an In Color announcement

I love corn on the cob – just wish the season was longer and it was cheaper! Here’s a card made using the new Perfectly Preserved bundle from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue. I really like these fresh colours – Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit – which are from our new In Color™ collection. And here’s some great news for you – even though the In Color™ items don’t appear in any catalogues until 1st October, you can get your hands on them now so that you can co-ordinate with products in the Autumn/Winter catty. See below for the items available, with codes and prices – you may need to click on it to make it bigger.

To make this card I coloured the corn with new In Color™ markers ad stamped on Whisper White. Next I die-cut them with the new Cannery Set Framelits Dies – these are outline dies so you can see where you are putting them. The background is embossed using that old favourite; the Polka Dot embossing folder, and there’s a bit of linen thread to give it a slightly rustic look.
