Color Dare #324 - Oh What Fun
Welcome to my blog, Paper Crafting With Rebecca!
It is time for another Color Dare! The challenge this time is a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge. That means that we are given a color board of nine colors and are to choose a row, column or diagonal of three colors to work with. I chose the bottom row: White Daisy, Raspberry, and Pixie. So let the fun begin!
First, let's gather some supplies. Of course there is the cardstock in the three chosen colors, but I also used a CTMH Pixie ink pad, a border die to run through my Cricut Cuttlebug, and my CTMH Background Essential (D1750) stamp and my Stamp & Thin Cuts Z4172 stamps and dies.
I used the Raspberry cardstock to make a base card by cutting it to 8.5" x 5.5" and then folding it in half to create a side-opening card. Next I cut the Pixie cardstock to 5.25" x 4" and the White Daisy cardstock to 5" x 3.75". I also cut a strip of boarder, using a die, out of the Raspberry cardstock. If you want to recreate this card you can use any border die you have in your stash, ribbon, Washi tape, or even a strip of paper.
Then it was a simple matter of stamping the bottom of the white piece of cardstock with a background stamp using the Pixie ink pad and stamping the sentiment using the same ink pad. In retrospect I suppose I should have used a darker ink, but I was trying to be a "purist" this challenge and use only the three chosen colors (and my Raspberry ink pad needs to be re-inked).
Next I simply made a few flowers using my Pixie ink pad on the Raspberry cardstock. Once all the inking was done it was a quick finish by simply adhering all the parts together! I popped the flowers up with some foam tape and added three pearl embellishments that matched the Pixie perfectly!
And there it is... a simple, but sweet, card made out of the three colors from the Tic-Tac-Toe color board: White Daisy, Raspberry, and Pixie! Thank you for reading my blog, and if you have any questions or comments about the products used (or the techniques I employed) then please leave me a message in the comment section below.

Happy Paper Crafting,

Cute card! I love the simple design and colors you used. Thanks for sharing with us at Color My Heart Color Dare.ReplyDelete
Thank you Michelle! Sometimes it is fun to make an “all purpose” card that will mail easily. I sometimes get carried away with my embellishments and occasionally need to remind myself to “keep it simple” for something different.Delete
Oh, you picked my row :) I love the simplicity of your card. Thanks for sharing with us at the Color My Heart Color Dare...I hope you'll come back and join us again.ReplyDelete
Thank you Tracey! I made a conscious effort to keep this card simple this time. Sometimes I get carried away with too many embellishments, or too much “busy” on a card... tried to channel a more “cheerful calmness” for this design.Delete
