Prima's New "Hello Pastel" collection

January 4, 2013

Happy Friday, all!  How has your week been?  Mine has been busy as I've prepped samples for CHA, and have been getting ready for a wedding fair that is this weekend.  To top it all off, I caught a pretty craptastic head/chest cold....and I am just hoping that it passes enough before Sunday when I have to talk to hundreds of wedding planning brides.  :)

Today I have one of my CHA samples to share with you, as it went up on the Prima CHA Sneak Peek blog post this morning.  My card includes product from the new "Hello Pastel" collection, and Say It In Crystals.  Here is a look at these two collections!

I am seriously in LOVE with the Hello Pastel collection!  It has beautiful spring colors, trendy patterns, and the matching stickers are just perfect for card makers!  I also used the hexagon Say It In Crystals on my card....which just made it all the more trendy!  Tee hee!  Here is what I created!
1. Make a 5" square card from white cardstock.
2. Cut grey polka dot paper slightly smaller and adhere.
3. Cut a block of aqua chevron paper, round the right corners & adhere to the right side.
4. Cut a strip of floral paper and adhere to the left of the chevron paper block.
5. Layer a striped banner sticker & a hexagon jewel to the top of the card.
6. Tie a double bow from twine, then adhere with a metal trinket & pink jewel to the top of the striped banner.
7. Layer two flowers to the lower right corner of the chevron block, then add the sentiment sticker over top of them.
8. Accent the sentiment with a pink jewel, then add a pearl flourish underneath it to finish.
