Change it Up

February 15, 2017

My upline, the very lovely Stephanie Pike, issued a challenge to our team to create a card using one of the product suites from the Occasions Catalogue, but to use a different colour scheme.

I decided to use the Urban District stamp set.  In the catalogue this product suite uses a colour scheme consisting of Basic Black, Basic Gray, Delightful Dijon, Silver and Very Vanilla.009

To create my card I started by adding Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape (retired) across the centre of Whisper White card and attached it to scored and folded Crumb Cake card.    I cut Early Espresso and Crumb card using the hexagon die from the Build It Framelits Dies and embossed each one using the Hexagon Embossing Folder.  I stamped the greeting from the Urban District stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut it out using the same hexagon Framelit Die.010  I attached each of the hexagons to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside I added two strips of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape across the bottom of Whisper White card.

To be honest, I am not sure about this card at all.  I like the layout but not sure if the colours work.  What do you think?

Anyway, sometimes it is nice to be challenged to think outside the box when creating.

Bye for now,
