Surf Blue… what a fabulous color. One of my favorites! Easy on the eye, a soft tone but not too soft, it’s just right. Surf Blue sits just in between Simon Says Stamp’s Sea Glass and Audrey Blue. Blue tones are a bit harder to match with products when looking online or on screen, so to find them in real life and put them together for you might be helpful.

I’ve put together a video of the walk through of products I found plus a little about my card I’ve made. Enjoy!

I’ve used the Authentique Classique Elegant paper to get my card started, I stenciled the Moraccan pattern using Surf Blue ink onto a black and white pattern paper.

I was completely inspired by Laura Bassen’s card HERE where she stacked her die cut butterflies. I alternated colors and sizes and then set the Congrats die cut on top of the arrangement.

I love the silver Glitzy Glitter paper by DCWV, it adds such an elegant touch!
