Two long-awaited crafty parcels arrived this morning, so I dove into them straightaway! Here’s the first card I made using the combo from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.
I used the beautiful daisy chain background die by Pinkfresh Studio. This die does not cut an edge, which was perfect for me as I could make a UK card size by simply adding a row or two at the bottom of the first die cut area.
I tried out Jennifer McGuire’s faux inlaid die cutting technique for the mustard petals – but I didn’t think it work properly so I just adhered pieces of grey card rather than embossing them first. Now they are in situ, I think I can see a bit of a difference… can you?
I added an old Concord & 9th sentiment, a few pearls and a few butterflies by Simon Says Stamp to complete my card.
Thanks for stopping by!
Love your background pattern! What a lovely take on the throwdown colors!
