I finally had the opportunity to participate in a challenge. I'm so excited. Its been ages and I'm really happy with how this one turned out. Over at Just Add Ink, they issued a challenge to use the colour BLUE. I went with a monochromatic scheme plus white for my cards. I was able to make a set of four cards and card holder. I used some retired DSP from a few years ago (yikes). I seem to have a lot of retired DSP, which I'm in the process of using. I also used a retired stamp set, Take Three. Its one that I have only used a few times, as I never really found a good card for it. This time the stamp set was the perfect choice.
Here are the pictures
Unfortunately the pictures aren't very good. I haven't found the perfect spot for placing my projects for portraits. Once my craft room is fully organized and clean (like that will ever happen), I'm hoping to have a shelf that I can display my projects.
What you can't see in the picture, is that I used the same embossing folder (I can't remember which one and I don't have my catalogue on hand) on each card. The colors are Baja Breeze (so happy its back) and Not Quite Navy (glad they kept it). I also used silver brads and Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. I used a few different punches as embellishments on the cards.
The card holder is made out one sheet of dsp. I used a scrap of dsp (from the same package) to decorate the front.
I love make sets of cards that coordinate. I'm hoping I can do the same for all my Christmas cards.
Happy Fall and take care,
