Aged To Perfection.

Hi everyone – I hope your week is off to great start! A new ‘3 Colors Plus Twist’ challenge has started today over at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge and our sponsor is Beccy’s Place so be sure to come on over and play! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a Father’s Day card using Neville from Beccy’s Gnomes In My Garden digital stamp set. I’m so in love with Neville. I’ve had him in my stash for a little while and this is the second time I’ve used him. Is he cool or what?! If I wasn’t married and if Neville were a real dude, I’d SO date him, lol!

For the 3 Colors Plus Twist challenge this fortnight, we are to use the three colors shown in the photo below with a twist of a die cut. Definitely do-able! I used blue and green when I colored Neville, used double-stitched rectangle dies and added a yellow strip to my card design so I’ve covered all bases! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock. I printed Neville on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, colored him with alcohol markers and cut him with a double-stitched rectangle die. I layered the image on a slightly larger double-stitched rectangle cut from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green. I didn’t have the right color of blue cardstock in my stash so I faked it by cutting a slightly larger rectangle of the ivory cardstock and coloring the outside 1/2″ around all four sides, then adhered it beneath the layered image. I added a wide strip of CutCardStock Camomile cardstock down the center of the card base, stamped the sentiment in black ink at the bottom, adhered the layered image, and added three black enamel dots to the top to finish the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock and embellished it with a narrow strip of CutCardStock Camomile cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock.

And one more look… so loving this little dude! He makes the coolest cards, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
