Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Color Challenge - Wild Wheat

It's time for Week 2 of the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Challenge and this week our color is Wild Wheat, one of our 2023-2025 In Colors. We have been challenged to create a card design using this color to showcase Stampin' Up!'s amazing color coordination to help spark your own creativity. 
Wild Wheat is one of those colors that people can have strong feelings about. At first glance, it may not be a color that you would be drawn to, but I am hoping that my card design will encourage you to give this chameleon like color a second look. I have chosen to use one of the designs from the Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper, a Sale-a-bration Level 1 Reward you can earn Free with a qualifying $50 order. I love this beautiful tone on tone botanical design and it has this wonderful vintage feel to it. I wanted to create a clean and simple design that would allow this color to shine, so I chose to use the Layering Leaves stamp set from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog, with its wonderful sentiments that work well for a variety of occasions. With some detailed die cuts using the coordinating Stippled Roses Dies to add some texture and a little coordinating bling, I think this card design showcases this beautiful color.

This is such a simple card design but I feel like the simplicity helps to showcase what a beautiful color Wild Wheat really is. I love how it looks with botanical prints like the one I have chosen for the card front for this design. I feel like this color has a slight olive tinge to it that lends itself well with leaves and foliage, so I added the detailed die cuts created with the Stippled Roses Dies to add some contrast and texture to the design. For the sentiment, I stamped the image from the Layering Leaves stamp set with Wild Wheat Classic ink onto Basic White cardstock and punched it out with the 2 3/8" Circle Punch. I added the circle to the card front to pop it up using Stampin' Dimensionals, layering it over the detailed die cuts. For a touch of bling, I added several of the Wild Wheat Dots to finish off the design. To me, this card design has the look of aged Gold that you would find on a vintage card. So what do you think? Are you a fan of Wild Wheat? Let me know what you think.
