Hello for another fortnight challenge with the Colour INKspiration crew. Welcome if you have joined me from our Guest Designer, Cathy or if you are starting here with me. The crew have some really awesome and different ideas using this gorgeous set of colours…
Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum and Lemon Lime Twist.
I started my card with the Perfect Days Memories and More card pack. I love that pack, well lets face it… I love them all really. This one is Black and White with Emerald Envy and Lemon Lime Twist (with touches of Soft Sky and Sahara Sand too) and coordinates with some design features with the Naturally Eclectic Suite.
Here I have used a card with a fun design of a speech bubble, which only uses the LLT of the greens. I decided on a Bermuda Bay cardbase with a layer of Basic Black cardstock behind the Memories and More card. I added in the sentiment on top in Sweet Sugarplum. I love how that colour pops of the page against the greens and black. I decided on a combination of stamp and die for the sentiment – the “hello” stamp is from the Eastern Beauty set and the die cut “you” is from the current Sale-a-bration exclusive die set, Celebrate You thinlits.
Before adhering these layers together, I thought the card base was looking a little plain for this. So I embossed it with the new Simple Striped Embossing folder. It made all the difference. Love the texture of simple stripes creates.
I finally cracked open my Party Pandas Stamp set. Very late onto that band wagon – I know. I decided on this one, holding the envelope. It matched the sentiment, I thought. I used Memento Tuxedo Black for the Panda and I added a “hi” from the set on the envelope.
I fussy cut my panda and decided sticking him on by himself, made him look a little lonely, so I add some decorative elements to help frame him. Punching out a Swirl from the Swirly Scribbles thinlit die set in Bermuda Bay cardstock. and winding some Black metallic thread did the trick.
I hope the recipient of this card enjoys it!
