Baja Makes it Better!

This is a card I made for class this Friday/Saturday. And, man, I've been stewing over this one card. I've re-made it in lots of color combinations, but nothing looked right! Finally I changed out one of the Earthtone colors I had for Baja Breeze - and finally I'm happy with it!!

We're making this card for my "technique class." I saw the idea to make a background like this from Becky Roberts (although her card was pretty different from how mine is). So I took the background idea, and lovingly named it the 'Bodaciously Beautiful Background.' - Gotta stick with those Stampin' Up! alliterations. And how it's made is just stamp onto First Edition Specialty paper, then sponge the edges a bit, and then run it through the Big Shot with an Embossing Folder (I used Elegant Lines). - And I forgot to put it through the Embossing Folder before I stuck it to the Vanilla layer - so they both got embossed!

Then I decided to use the Designer Frames Embossing Folder for the saying - I like the simplicity, and elegance of it! It also got a little Baja sponging - just on the Wide Oval Circle part that was dimensionaled onto it.

So maybe a little off the usual Fall color scheme, but I really like what Baja did for this card! I guess I always like Baja though!

Thanks for stopping by,

Good move going with the Baja. Beautiful card. I'm going to try that technique myself!
