Hydrangea Hill Suite and Envelope VIDEO

20210222_094340
GARDENING TIP: you can change the color of your garden Hydrangeas from pink to BLUE by adding SOIL ACIDIFER, found in your garden center near the fertilizers! It's MAGIC!!

The Hydrangea Hill Suite #155985 is ELEGANT and let's you create any color blossoms you desire on card stock! These are "Z" fold cards cut 4-1/4 X 11" then scrored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". VERY EASY! I used the interesting Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate sheets #154574. The left one is Highland Heather color. The right one is flipped over to the silver side of the Mercury Glass Acetate.

 

20210222_094431

I inked the flower image in Highland Heather and then "rolled" the edge of the image in Seaside Spray ink for a lovely realistic color combo. That is called the "ROCK & ROLL" technique.

 

20210222_094209

I rarely make just one card at a time, so this one is varied from the other.

 

20210222_094455

Cards this exquisite demand fancy envelopes! The top envelope has the flap covered in the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper #154570. The lower card I created from the same Designer Papers using the border print and here is how:

For this card, I used the same colors from the quilt, cut in strips like the quilt. They were a little too bright so I softened them with a sheet of VELLUM. The letters are Playful Alphabet Dies #152706, popped up with Foam Adhesive Sheets #152815.
