Fab Friday 123

October 17, 2017

Here I am attempting another challenge and giving you all a break from my Christmas Card creations.  I might have taken a little liberty with this week’s challenge at Fab Friday but I did use the sketch as the inspiration to create a card to send with a package of cards to my Aunty.  She doesn’t read my blog so I can share before she receives her gift.  I used the Flourish Thinlits Dies to cut Elegant Eggplant card and attached it across the lower right hand edge of Whisper White card.  The Whisper White card is attached to Perfect Plum card and then scored and folded Elegant Eggplant card.   I stamped the large flower from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White card three times, once using Elegant Eggplant, once using Perfect Plum and once using Crushed Curry.  I cut the full flower, the smaller flower and the flower centre from each of the stamped flowers.  They are attached on top of one another using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Always Artichoke ink and cut them out.  The leaves are attached behind the flower before attaching to the card front, covering the left hand edge of the die border.  I stamped Just a note from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White card using Elegant Eggplant ink.  I punched one end using the Triple Banner Punch before sponging Elegant Eggplant ink lightly around the edges.  I attached the greeting to the top right hand corner of the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I once more stamped and cut out the flower and leaf images before attaching them to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.

I love these colours together, don’t you.  Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to co-ordinate colours, if you get stuck for a combination just choose your colour palette from one of the colour families and you can’t go wrong.

Thanks once again to Fab Friday for the inspiration to create my card today.

Bye for now,
