Happy Sunday, hope you are having a good weekend. It’s rather cool and rainy here, hopefully today will have some sunshine. Perfect time to make some homemade soup and spaghetti sauce for dinner and the freezer.
Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge 242, a color challenge. Click the image below for a link to check out their blog. For my card I’m using a Night of Navy Z Fold card base that has been sitting in my stash for awhile now. To create my Z Fold card I started with a piece of card stock 4¼” x 11″, scored at 2¾” and 5½”. The piece helps fold the card is 1″ x 11″, scored at 2¾” and 5½” and adhered opposite the folds of the card base.
The colors I’m using are Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder and So Saffron. I decided to create my own designer series paper using the Love & Affection photopolymer stamp set and the colors I’ve listed. The flowers are from the retiring stamp sets Flower Patch (the first stamp set I ever used for a swap card at convention) and Petite Petals and their matching punches Pansy and Petite Petals. The leaves are Night of Navy using the leaves of the Bird Builder Punch. Rhinestones in the center of the flowers are retired from my stash. The embossed image on the fourth quadrant is from the Floral Affection embossing folders, which coordinate with the Love & Affection stamp set. Greeting on the front is from Suite Saying, making this card perfect to let someone know you are thinking of them.
Here is a close up of the card opened all the way.
Some of the supply products used are on the retired list, are only available only while supply lasts and may be sold out. Retiring stamp sets are available until May 22nd, then while supplies last. Numerous products can be substituted to recreate these cards, these make great samples.
