Hi everyone! A big ole Happy Monday to you! I’m thrilled to share that I’m guest designing for Make The Cards Challenges over the next three months! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! My GD inspiration project for MTCC #14: 3-2-1 Challenge is a pretty birthday card created in kraft and black, which is one of my favorite color combos although I don’t use it nearly enough!
As the graphic depicts, the challenge is to create a project using 3 embellishments, 2 die cuts and 1 stamped image. Fun, fun, fun!
I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock, a really sturdy cardstock, and covered the front with CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft cardstock. Using the CUTplorations Butterfly Cover Plate, I die cut the decorative front panel from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock and then die cut the flagged label from the kraft cardstock using the Inspired by Stamping Fancy Label Dies 3, which took care of my two die cuts. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on the label die cut which satisfied the stamping requirement. I added three tiny white flat-back pearls (colored black with an alcohol marker) to the stamped sentiment which took care of the requirement of three embellishments. ;)
I covered the inside of the card base with CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft cardstock, embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock and a very narrow leftover strip of the kraft cardstock just beneath it for a tone-on-tone effect, and stamped the sentiment in black ink.
And one more look… what a fun challenge! Love how this card turned out!
