I pulled out my Colour Coach today to find a colour combination that would be a little different & for colours that I would never think to use together. I went with the “Getting Started” Combination, which has gone perfectly with today’s card.
I’ve used the sketch from Clean and Simple which just cries for a clean & simple card!
I’ve also combined it with my groups weekly challenge for Late Night Stampers. Challenge 108 – Let’s Hear it for the Boys – Masculine Cards
Base Card – Old Olive – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm – cut, score & fold in half
Layer 1 – Marina Mist – 5 7/8″ x 2″ or 15cm x 5cm
Layer 2 – Real Red – 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ or 10cm x 6cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 2 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ x 9.5cm x 5.5cm
For my card, I randomly stamped Marina Mist Cardstock using Marina Mist Ink. I then adhered this down the LHS of Old Olive. Using Marina Mist Ink, I stamped the image directly onto the Whisper White. I stamped the greeting in Real Red Ink off to the right of Whisper White Cardstock. I adhered this to Real Red Cardstock & tore the bottom of the Real Red Cardstock.
Using Hemp Twine, I tied this around the middle of the Whisper White & adhered the whole lot to the base card. I threaded a piece of Hemp Twine through a buttom & adhered to the card.
