CI#120 Farewell to In Symmetry and some favourite colours

 As the end of the Annual Catalogue approaches I just had to use this lovely set one last time. Our colours this week include 2 retiring favourites too - Misty Moonlight and Just Jade. I will really miss these two. 

For my square cards I used the Stamparatus to do some "stamping in the round". It took quite a bit of experimenting to get the stamps in the right spot, and while not perfect I was happiest with this result. The central flower was fussy cut and mounted on a polished pink circle. I left this one without a sentiment for simplicity

This version needed to be trimmed down as I wasn't happy with the border effect. The just jade background works well to focus your attention on the leaf motif.  The stamped and punched Flowers of Friendship are also geometric with only 4 petals so I thought this worked well with the layout. 

 My cards are 11.5cm square- a nice change from regular dimensions.

As an alternative I also used the colours to CASE Cindy Schuster from the Crafty Carrot Collective for this card using the fabulous Artfully Layered Suite. That patterned vellum is fantastic.

I'm excited to start using some new colours and stampsets. be sure and check back to see what I create next.
