DesignTeamHeadshots-LorenaCantoHello there! Lorena here with a brand new Five for Friday post full of inspiration! Lately, I’ve been in love with all things coral. It’s a really pretty color, perfect for both Spring and Summer, and it combines beautifully with soft shades (like mint), with bold ones (turquoise!) and even with trendy metalics. Here are a few coral crushes I’m having right now…
  1. Let’s start with an amazing coral reef. Because, you know, it wasn’t Anthropologie that invented this shade * wink *

  1. Coral seems to be hot for bridesmaids gowns, but you can wear it anytime! This dress is proof. Isn’t it gorgeous, combined with navy trellis?

  1. The beautiful coral is making a dent in décor, too. I love how beautifully curated this little corner is.

WFC coral 1 I double die cut the A2 panel from Lacy Layers die to make a square panel in coral, and then used the Lacy Flowers  and Lacy Flowers Mats die to make some inlaid die cutting over vellum. WFC coral 2 I finished the card with Celebrate word die cut from glittery gold fun foam, and gold twine. WFC coral 3 I also tried some tone on tone coral on this tag, but this time I used glittery white fun foam for the sentiment, which comes from the Congrats die set. WFC coral 4 I hope you enjoyed this coral parade! Happy weekend! -Lorena
