In continuation with yesterday’s post, here is another card that I made at my upline’s stamp class (stampahowlics.com). This card prominently features this year’s new 2022-2024 In-Colors of Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, and Starry Sky. We used a recycled paper-style die and embossing folder to create the scrap look for the card. The greeting comes from the Good Feelings set featured on page 18 of the annual catalog.
This card design is great for producing many cards of the same style, as it is easiest to use the hole-punch die on a quarter sheet (or slightly smaller) of paper and then cut it down into strips. I love the In-Color Matte Decorative Dots for this project, giving some dimension and playing along with the missing holes of the paper strips. Combined with the crumpled paper effect of the mid-layer, it looks like I pulled a completed card out of my scrap bin!
The card base used is Basic Black with a Basic White insert and embossed layer. The greeting is stamped using Memento black ink, but StazOn or Basic Black would work as well. We used the Multipurpose Glue for the strips to avoid having Stampin’ Seal show through the holes. The small greeting was cut out using the Stitched Rectangles dies and popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Below are the consumable and non-consumable ingredients used in this card.
What other color families might you make this card with? I could definitely see myself trying out combinations from the Brights Color Collection, as that is usually my favorite collection to pull colors from. Let me know in the comments!
