Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! Amanda here today. Spring is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t wait for the flowers and trees to bloom and bud and breathe a little bit of color into the drab winter landscape. I pulled out a bunch of gold foiled pineapples and embellishments and paired them with some happy green patterned paper to create an instant Spring atmosphere in my craft room.
Departing from the more traditional “pot-o-gold” and ‘kiss me I’m Irish” sentiments, I thought it would be fun to put a trendy twist on green and gold cards during the month of March. The chartreuse greens from the Everyday collection compliments gold foil to make a new color combination inspired by the classic St. Patrick’s day bright green and gold.
Everything about this card reminds me of my in-law’s south Florida home decor, but in a good way. A gold foiled journaling card centered on a piece of coordinating patterned paper makes for a simple, yet stunning, card. Pop up the journaling card with some foam dots to add some more dimension to the card.
You can’t go wrong with gold dots and a sweet and simple sentiment. Hello cards are my favorite to keep in my stash because you can use them for almost any occasion.
If gold pineapples were running for president, I’d vote for them. They are positively irresistible. Trim patterned paper to just the right size to create a gold dot marquee border around the edge of the card.
Start your gold and green projects by gathering papers and gold embellishments. I didn’t end up using all of these embellishments, but having them in one place made it easy to experiment with different arrangements and combinations.
Create custom embellishments by altering embellishments from other Pebbles collections. I customized these accordion rosettes from the Spring Fling collection by adhering a gold pineapple on top of the original sentiment.
