We are back with week 2 of the current CR84FN Color Challenge!
I am just loving the rich regal colors for this current color challenge
Burgundy, Gray and Cream.
They are perfect for a masculine card which I needed to make for one of my favorite guys.
I wanted to make a pretty card to make it special, but I didn't want it to be too frou-frou(is this a word???)
And this is what I made:
I have been crazy about the Santa Claus MME 6x6 paper pad this year. I have almost used the entire pad and that is unusual for a finicky girl like me! But the papers are just so elegant and beautiful.
After I decided which papers that I was going to use, I took them to my sewing machine and did a little zigzag stitching around all the edges. (I am still learning how to sew, don't look to closely ;D)
The focal point of the card is a pretty Verve snowflake, which I stamped with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I then adhered the snowflake to the burgundy striped die cuts, which were cut my Mat Stack (PTI) dies.
The greeting was also stamped with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
Now grab your favorite inks, stamps & papers, and create a card or LO with these beautiful colors!
And please share it with us by linking to our site!
