Celebrate Basic Gray!


I'm lovin' the new Basic Gray color.  Ok, it's not that new, but I had been putting off getting it for a while until I saw someone use it instead of Basic Black and I really liked what I saw!  The layout of this card was inspired by Mary.  I really liked the clean crisp monochromatic look of the card.


I also really wanted to try out the new grommets from the Occasions mini catalog.  They are such a fun accent to add to your card!  I simply placed the paper on the soft pad of the mat pack and pushed the grommet through the paper and then folded the tines onto the back of the paper.

I added two 5-petal flowers on the back and a dimensional as well.  I used the new Matchbox Messages from the Occasions mini catalog as well as the Sizzix Matchbox Die.

Recipe:
Stamps: Matchbox Messages
Paper: Basic Gray, Walk in the Park DSP, Urban Oasis DSP
Ink:  Basic Gray
Sizzix Dies: Matchbox Die
Accessories:  Large White Grommet, 5-petal flower punch, brads



Don't forget: if you order $40 from the Occasions Mini catalog this month, you get your choice of any item on the "Under $10" page at the back of the catalog!
