PCC212 Color Challenge with Paisleys & Posies

By | September 25, 2016

Hope you all had a good Saturday, we went to our only concert of the ‘summer’ Jason Aldean and had a great time. Opening acts were One Thousand Horse and Thomas Rhett, they all put on great shows.  Since the weather was so nice yesterday we even went earlier and tailgated!

Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge, a Color Challenge.  When I saw their post it was the same day I received my order with the new Paisley & Posies Photopolymer Bundle and thought the colors and this set would make the perfect card, which I am sharing with you today. The bold color choice is beautiful together for a background.



To create my card I started with a piece of Whisper White and using images from the stamp set using the largest image and Night of Navy, followed by Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry. The smaller images are in Emerald Envy to fill in spaces. This piece is adhered to Night of Navy, backed with Stampin Dimensionals and adhered to a Tangerine Tango card base.  The greeting is from Confetti Celebration, stamped in Night of Navy and die cut with an oval from the new Layering Ovals Framelits, the scalloped oval is also from the same set.  Linen thread was rolled up, adhered to the card with glue dots then the greeting set on top.  I really like how this came out, the colors really work well together.

This same background process can be used with a variety of colors and greetings.  How about greens and red for Christmas, pastels for baby, orange/purple/green for Halloween, I’m sure you see the themes here!



Hope you enjoyed the card. If you would like to make a card like this yourself the supply list is below with a link to my online store. I would greatly appreciate your business. Everyone who orders from me receives a handmade card and small gift.

Next Sunday will start my “12 Sundays before Christmas” series.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, have a great day, Craft On!
