Hello! Welcome to August and the Create With Connie and Mary (CCMC)676 Thursday Color Challenge.
Have I told you that I love challenges? A sketch challenge and a color challenge are great places to start when trying to create a card. I find the sketch challenge a little easier than the color challenges but, both give me a place to start. Have you tried them? If not, start today! You can post your creations to the Create with Connie and Mary Facebook page. I would like to see what you make!
Using a Night of Navy card base, I added a 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, Tasteful-Textile-embossed panel of Soft Succulent cardstock (CS). Next, I die-cut Petal Pink CS with the largest stitched die in the Hippo & Friends die set by Stampin’ Up!®. After stamping an image from the Shaded Summer stamp set, I color the empty spaces with Soft Succulent and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends combo packs. Soon, I was finished coloring, added dimensionals to the reverse side, and added the panel to the card front, as shown.
Side View of the Color Challenge Card:
The sentiment found in the Shaded Summer stamp set is stamped with Night of Navy ink onto a 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ strip of Petal Pink CS. After adding the Soft Succulent bow with a glue dot, I scattered a few Elegant Faceted (clear) Gems on the card as the finishing touch. This photo shows a sneak peek at the inside of the card.
Inside of the Card:
Of course, I carried the colors from the color challenge to the inside of the card. I also stamped another image of the Shaded Summer flowers on the inside to coordinate with the card front. I hope you like my card. The supplies to make this card are listed below.
