Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by for this month's Card Chain Challenge Reveal! This month I decided to go with the color palette that Deborah chose:
I am so pleased that I got the colors correct this time AND I get to send my card to fellow Coloradian, Oreet. I know my card won't take too long to reach her. I received my card from Barbara in Florida yesterday - I love the texture of this card - she put a ton of work into this!
What I Used to make my card:
Vanilla Card Base
Core'dinations Bright Colors Cardstock in Lime, Atoll Aqua & Love Potion
Die-Namics Die "Rose with Leaves", #DN-1099
Sequins from Stash
Quitefire Designs, Ten Tiny Tag Sentiments, #6382
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Kassie's Brocade
Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black
Pop Dot (cut in half)
I cut the Rose with Leaves die four separate times, one each in white and the
three Core'dinations colors. I had actually cut the white rose out before I had decided what I was going to do. I had even asked Oreet preferred colors to get an idea. Ultimately, I decided to match the Challenge Colors the best I could and that is what prompted me to cut the rose out 3 more times. I pieced the design together, cut out the leaves and flowers, glued the whole shebang onto a piece of vanilla card.
I moved the rose around the Vanilla base card a few times and I just wasn't happy with the design. Then I remembered, I have embossing folders!! I got another piece of vanilla card and ran it through the Big Shot using the Cuttlebug embossing folder and once it was embossed, cut it down a bit. Once I had that little bit of design on the card the next thing to pop into my mind was the sequins. I fished through my stash of sequins, picked out the ones I felt complimented the cards colors the best and glued them on. The sentiment needed to be small but I still wanted impact. Quietfire Designs is a fantastic company, the Design Team and Designer, Suzanne Cannon, are fabulous! I stamped my chosen sentiment on vanilla card using black ink, trimmed it, cut a pop dot in half and pop dotted it onto the card.
