Spring Delight Border with Rachel Vass Designs


Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing another beautiful digistamp
set from the April 2021 Release from:

Rachel Vass Designs
Spring Border Delight

There is so much you can do with this repeat the design for
a slimline card!  The Design Team has been busy with this one!  So
many different ways to use this!
I was inspired by some paper for this card.  Memory Box has come out
with some beautiful plaid papers - I love plaid.  It's the Madras Plaid
Blue and Violet Double-sided papers.   But first I composed my design
in the computer and printed it out onto Neenah 80lb Classic Crest
Solar White card stock.

I chose the plaid paper I wanted to use, but it was on the side
that was not foiled.  All of these papers are foiled on one side only.  
I really loved the foiling - so I made my own by
using peel-offs from Love From Lizi.  

This was so easy to do with straight lines of the plaid!  Next I
moved on to coloring my stamped panel.

I knew that Copics would give me the clean intensity of color
that I was looking for.

I color matched the flowers to the plaid paper by swatch testing
and holding the swatches against the paper.

I had thought about coloring the background, but there is just the
tiniest amount of white in the plaid so I left it uncolored.
Copic Colors used:

Green:  YG00, YG11, YG03
Purple:  BV000, BV00, BV02
Blue:  BG000, BG01, BG13

I covered a white top folding A2 size card base and completely
covered it with the plaid paper.  I cut my main image to 
3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and foam mounted it onto the card base.  I
die cut my banner and adhered that with foam tape.  As a
bit of bling I added tiny iridescent gems!

I hope you've enjoyed this project today!  I love the color matching
process so much!  You can find this digistamp set and the rest of
