about my card
This must be one of the quickest cards I’ve ever made for the Creative Colour Challenges! I simply took a piece of spotty Poppy Parade DSP from the 6″ x 6″ pack and trimmed it down to 10cm x 14 cm. This left me with a wide strip I can use for another project and a little piece to add to the inside of the card.
Before adding the DSP to my Smoky Slate card base, I coloured in some of the dots with Night of Navy and Smoky Slate dark Stampin’ Blends. As the dots are not perfect circles, I didn’t even bother if I coloured outside of the lines, lol!
I also added some Night of Navy ribbon across the DSP before adding it to my card. Then I stamped and die cut the sentiment on Basic White card with Poppy Parade and Night of Navy inks. I backed that circle with one I punched from Smoky Slate card with the 2-3/8″ circle punch. The sentiment was popped on with dimensionals over the ribbon…
For a bit of bling, I added some rhinestones.
My card base is Smoky Slate card measuring 29 x 10.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 14.5 cm. My Poppy Parade DSP layer measures 10 x 14 cm to give a neat little border. You’ll need another white card piece the same side for your insert, along with a DSP strip 10 cm wide.
You’ll also need a pieces of Basic White and Smoky Slate card to die cut and punch the circles.
I hope you like my card with this week’s colours. Why don’t you see what you can make with these colours and join in the fun?
