CCMC298 Perfect Pennants

It's Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge!  We have a wonderful SPRING color combination for you to try.   LOVE the colors in this.  BUT…I resisted using flowers on my card!   lol!



I did try something new with the Fringe Scissors…or at least I hadn't seen it done before!  Can you guess how I did the multi-colored fringe along the bottom?



Here are the details:

  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White, folded to make base card.
  2. I cut a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Daffodil Delight (don't emboss at this point).
  3. Next cut two 1 1/4 x 5 1/4 strips of Tangeine Tango and Gumball Green and used the Fringe Scissors on them part way.  I adhered them both together.  Then I took and trimmed off two Gumball Green fringes, left two, trimmed two…all the way across so that the Tangerine Tango underneath showed thru.  I adhered them to the bottom of the Daffodil Delight.
  4. I cut a 2 x 5 1/4 Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper and covered the top edge of the Fringe.
  5. I embossed the top portion of Daffodil Delight and the DSP with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.
  6. I cut two narrow 1/4 strips of Gumball Green and Tangerine Tango and placed across the DSP seam at the top.
  7. Make a Wish from Perfect Pennants was inked up with Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Gumball Green Markers and stamped on 2 x 3 1/2 Whisper White.  I used the Angled Tag Topper Punch at the bottom.
  8. I tied on some Daffodil Delight Chevron Ribbon thru the tag and adhered to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Isn't this a nice CHEERFUL card?  I love how it turned out…and that multi-colored fringe gives it a total different look!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary to see their fabulous cards for the color challenge!
