Each week I think, "oh, I'll play along with the colour throwdown this week" and make a start on a card. Very rarely do I finish the card on time and get it shared! I think this one will sneak in before the deadline...
I started out with the geometric dies from Simon Says Stamp and a whole bunch of colourful papers. I started with the 9-square square card. There's nothing wrong with it but I wasn't loving it. Perhaps it is too much, so I tried a smaller 6-square A6 (UK sizing) card. Still not loving it. I played around with the remaining pieces I had die cut and came up with card 3 - a mini slimline-ish sized card. It's actually the size that the die cuts took up rather than measured to a standard size! I'll have to make a custom envelope.
Now it makes sense... I need the white! I struggle with the other two as there is no white cardstock for my eye to rest from all of the colour. With that in mind I continued on with the off cuts and made card 4 - a slimline card which I actually finished with a greeting and embellishments.
The enamel dots were needed to cover a couple of tears in the paper from removing the washi tape that held a stitched die in place to add a little extra detail. Grr!
And I'm pleased with how it turned out in the end. I added a greeting from the MFT Winter Songbird stamp set embossed in Wow! white embossing powder
I will go back and add greetings to the other 3 cards but that won't be done in time to join in with this weeks challenge!
What fun you had playing with the shapes, papers, and colors!! So happy you joined us at CTD!!ReplyDelete
