I was looking for some colour inspiration to make another version of this card design featuring the Alphabest Bundle.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

The Dots and Spots die adds interest to the background.

Double embossing the letters gave them a super glossy look.

For this sample I used Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla die cuts. The lettering was stamped using Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
