Well I managed to make a card yesterday as well as make my customer gifts and prepare for my workshop. I even got a walk in. Today I will be working on some more cards and will try to get in a walk before my workshop.
Today we have a color challenge for Card A Day Challenge blog
I was drawn to the silvery gray, purple, and green for my card. I began with a card base of Perfect Plum. I cut the card stock at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. I took a piece of Smokey Slate card stock and cut it at 4” x 5 ¼”. Using the Timeless Textures stamp set and Garden Green ink, I stamped the lower edge and the right side using the peeled paint looking stamp. I then took the flourish from the set and stamped it with Elegant Eggplant and then stamped it again offset some without reinking it. I added a strip of Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape. I tied a piece of Elegant Eggplant baker’s twine around the card on top of the washi tape. Attach this to your card base. Stamp your sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts on a piece of Smokey Slate using Elegant Eggplant ink. Cut it down to fit. Cut a piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock ¼” larger than your sentiment piece. Mount the sentiment onto the Elegant Eggplant piece. Use dimensionals to add your sentiment to the lower portion of the card base. A shabby card using some unusual colors.
