Good Morning Marilyn! I’m glad you like the daisy card. I think it’s one of my all time favorites. While most of the cards I do don't have very fussy measurements if you'd like a starting point cut your embossed layer to 5 1/2" x 3 3/4". Layer a strip behind that with about 1/16" showing. My white greeting strip measures 3 3/4' x 1 3/4". I didn't measure the Misty Moonlight strips that border the white strip. You can see that mine don't match. They are roughly 1/16" and I put the slightly thicker one on the bottom, just because I normally keep my cards a little "bottom-heavy" if you know what I mean… Happy stamping! Chris Smith

This is absolutely stunning, Sharon! I'm thinking that these slimlines will be great for those that include a Christmas letter in their cards.

While there aren't specific Blends for all of the challenge colors I found that the Dark Calypso Coral does nicely for Terracotta Tile and I use dark Pool Party with a touch of Light Bermuda Bay to stand in for Coastal Cabana. Continue reading
