Hello friends and happy Tuesday! Today I'm sharing a card that was inspired by the color challenge at TGIF. This card is a great example of why I enjoy participating in card making challenges. Never in a million years would I have put these three colors together - Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black. Mostly because the first two are super bright and that's just plain scary to me! Yet, this card came together in less than ten minutes and, more importantly, despite the Lemon-Lime Twist brightness,
I genuinely like it!
*Full supply list at end of post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Basic Black cardstock. I cut a sheet of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5" x 3 3/4". On that sheet of white cardstock, I stamped the flower stems and splatter in Lemon-Lime Twist ink. Then I stamped the three flower outlines in Tuxedo Memento Black and the center of the flowers in Berry Burst. I matted this stamped image onto a sheet of Berry Burst cardstock and wrapped a piece of black Washi tape around it before adhering it to the Basic Black card base. Using the Leaf Punch, I punched two leaves out of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I stamped the "thanks" sentiment in Lemon-Lime Twist ink or a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. I punched the sentiment out with my favorite retired Oval Punch. I also used another favorite retired scalloped oval punch to punch out a piece of Berry Burst cardstock. I mounted the two ovals together and adhered it to the washi tape using Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the two leaves to the underside of the sentiment and put Clear Wink of Stella on the leaves for added sparkle. Lastly I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels randomly on the front of the card.
This card uses the Touches of Texture stamp set which is currently on the Retiring List and will be gone after May 31, 2018.
The textures and elements in this stamp set will add dimension and character to any of your cards.
This set features an eclectic array of useful and fun styles.
