One of my favorite colors of all time is Seaside Spray. It is an 2019/2021 In Color. The bad news it is going to retire at the end of this Annual Catalog on May 3rd. I plan on using it a lot in the next few months. This is also a reminder to all of you, that if you like any of the InColors that are retiring this year, you need to purchase them as soon as possible because once the retirement list comes out, they sell out very quickly. The other retiring InColors are Pretty Peacock (another favorite of mine), Rococo Rose, Purple Posy and Terracotta Tile. If you bought any of those ink pads, then make sure you have a re-inker.
I like non-traditional colors when it comes to holidays. If you recall, one of my Christmas cards this year was Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry. Red and Green for Christmas is great but you can also use other colors. I made this card for Valentine’s Day and, of course, Seaside Spray and Daffodil Delight are not your normal colors for Valentine’s but I love them anyway.
To make this card, I first cut out the Seaside Spray frame using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Then I used a die from the Suit & Tie Dies and cut out the strips of Seaside Spray, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White that I used in the background. I attached them to the Seaside Spray frame using Multipurpose Glue. Here is a little trick to make them evenly spaced. I used a 1/8″ scrap of cardstock that I had and placed it in-between each strip before gluing them down. I layered all of that onto a piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the two hearts from the Lots of Heart stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies called Many Hearts. This bundle is in the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. The little XOXOXO is also a die from this set. I cut it out in Seaside Spray and then Daffodil Delight and pieced the X’s & O’s inside the Seaside Spray die cut. I love that the O’s are really hearts.

Those are wonderful colors! I love your use of non-traditional colors, and this card is awesome. The different die sets work together so well, and that background is amazing. (Thanks for the tip to keep the stripes evenly spaced!)
Susan, this is a brilliant card. I love the Suit and Tie strips, that add so much texture.Those colors are wonderful! LOVE it all
Such a fun colour combination! The strips in the background add great detail 🙂
