Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for September! We have a fun bunch of colors to work with this month and the challenge is that we have to use ALL of these colors on our projects – yes, all 6 of them!
I first looked at them and thought I would make a fall themed card…but once I started looking at what product I had with those colors, one in particular stood out at me – the Memories & More Petal Garden Card Pack – I started looking through the contents of it and when I came across a beautiful gold foil die cut rose, I knew I had to change my plans and feature it…
And so that is what I did…isn’t that rose beautiful? We are allowed to use metallics on our projects and so I decided to make it the main focal point on this card…
The biggest challenge I had with this card was actually getting a good photograph because of that shiny rose! I tried over & over to get the perfect shot but it just wasn’t happening – there was always a dark spot on a part of it and so the snapshot above is the best I could get! But I think I managed to capture how beautiful that die cut rose is!
I have a Project Sheet for you below detailing all measurements, the colors I used & full instructions on how to make this card below – look for the red words to find it.
I used Very Vanilla for the card base along with a Pool Party mat – and that lovely dark brown piece of wood effect paper is from Wood Textures DSP – I think there is some Early Espresso in that paper but to be safe, I stamped the ‘you’ in that ink to cover all bases!
And that rose – oh my it’s pretty – it is a gold foil die cut that comes in the Memories & More Petal Garden Card Pack – if you’ve not seen this new line of cards, you can find them by clicking HERE – they are fab value for money at $10 a pack and they are not just for scrapbooking – you can use the cards & accessories in them for scrapbooking, card making and general paper crafting!
I added two beautiful pieces of ribbons in Very Vanilla and Pool Party and a bit of Vanilla Bakers Twine too…
And check out that little Calypso Coral heart from Subtles Enamel Shapes…isn’t it cute?
And for a bit more Calypso Coral, I added a sticker from the Petal Garden Card Pack to the top of the card to make the phrase ‘beautiful you’…
The ‘you’ is a part of a stamp that I found in One Big Meaning and I used masking tape to use just the ‘you’ bit, stamped it and punched it out with a circle punch.
I had two colors left to use and I decided to add dots of them around the wood background – both are from Brights Enamel Shapes – and they add just a splash of color.
