Silhouette Sentiments in Tangerine Tango

Today I have a great card for you out of an under-used colour - Tangerine Tango!  I was doing some cleaning in my cardstock drawer and came across this colour which has not had much use in my craft room.  So out it came and I created this card for you .......

I used the new Framed Tulips embossing folder by Stampin' Up!  Oh lala, this is wonderful, so many great things you can do with it.  The card is white, then a layer of Tangerine Tango, then the embossed white layer, then some more Tangerine Tango which is popped up on dimensionals, then white again where the images and the sentiment are stamped.  Some Pumpkin Pie 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon and voila!  I used the now retired Trio Flower Punch and punched 3 flowers out of Tangerine Tango and put the largest Basic Rhinestones on the top of them.  The flowers are also popped up on dimensionals to give them a bit of pop.

Stamps:  Silhouette Sentiments (level 1 hostess gift), A Word For You
Ink:  Basic Black, Old Olive
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
Other: Trio Flower punch, Basic Rhinestones, Framed Tulips embossing folder

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Stampin'!   Glenda Mollet

Glenda this card is sooooo pretty! I am gonna have to look into the embossing folder, I love it. Almost cried when you said the flower punch was retired. I will definitely start paying attention to more SU product.
Thanks for checking on me today.

I am not an orange fan but this color is more than that...and I love the way you used it..thanks for sharing your idea and reminding us to use those colors we don't particularly care for - with a base color over them, they can really be very pretty!

Hi Glenda, I run across your blog and I have to tell you that your card is gorgeous. Love the color combination of White and Tangerine Tango.
