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!
