Don’t forget! The Holiday Extravaganza is still going on (thru December 1st). Don’t miss out on these great bundled prices!
Today’s Blogger’s Challenge was to use this picture of a bedding ensemble as inspiration for our card. My guess at the colors is Really Rust, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. I liked the color block images and the softness of the medallions in the fabric. It appears shimmery to me, too.
So, I started with the Fresh Cuts stamp set to give me the monochromatic look of Really Rust on Very Vanilla. I layered that on Really Rust and used it as my base card, too. I then found the print from Haiku Designer Paper that has Really Rust tones along with So Saffron in a medallion-like print. I added some of the new So Saffron twill ribbon across the bottom…it’s the first time I’ve used it and I really like it! It added that shimmer I was seeking.
Then I used my 5 petal punch and star punch to create a flower for the upper left and added a Build a Brad in the center with a 1/2" circle punched from the Haiki designer paper…I love how that draws the background to the forefront and it is such an easy touch! I added a little tag "For You" from the same set and used gold cord to hang it from the flower.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Today I need to work on my classes for next week. I have the ideas, just need to get them roughed out on paper.
Have a great weekend!
