Today I am playing along with Can You Case It #115 color challenge.
These colors reminded me of back to school but that’s not where this card went! I decided that since these were three very bold colors, a bold and striking card was called for.
I really like the goemetric and modern feel of this card. This is a style I find more difficult but I must say that this card came together surprising quickly.
The card base is Basic Black with a Whisper White mat. The black strips are cut to 1/4″ wide and about 8″ long. The first strip I glued was the one on the top left corner. Then I took another 1/4″ strip and just placed it next to the first one but did not adhere it. I used this strip as a spacer to make sure my spaces were even in between strips. After all the strips were glued, I put the card back on my paper cutter and trimmed the excess.
The flower is from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set and is one of my favorite flower stamps in the whole catalog. It is stamped twice and colored with Real Red ink and a blender pen. Then punched using the Fun Flower punch. I stamped another flower just so I could use the center, which is colored with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write marker and fussy cut. The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.
The inside is embellished with a little bit of DSP from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Pack and Real Red cardstock.
This card could easily be adapted for almost any occasion and would certainly make a bold statement!
