Time for another Color My Heart Color Dare! This time it is a Splash of Color Dare. The challenge is to "... use any product as long as it is brown, plus ONLY ONE splash of color of your choice. Black and white are free." Since I have some very dear friends who are celebrating their wedding anniversary I decided to make them a clean and simple card within the parameters of this challenge.

To start I cut a piece of brown Kraft Paper to 4.25" x 11" and folded it in half to create a top fold card. Then it was a matter of stamping and embossing. I used one retired CTMH stamp set (Rise Strong - D1870) and the Every Little Thing (C1801) stamp set. I love the flowers on the retired set, but I also really love the font of the Every Little Thing stamp set.

I stamped the flower and leaf images on the Kraft cardstock using VersaMark and then heat embossed using White Super Fine Embossing Powder. Don't forget to use your Anti-static Pouch before stamping to prevent embossing powder sticking where you don't want it to!

Next I simply took a piece of Vellum Paper and stamped the sentiment (again using my Anti Static Pouch , VersaMark, and White Super Fine Embossing Powder). Then I cut the vellum down to the size I wanted for the front of the card.

Lastly, I attached the vellum using three small Glue Dots. Then, to cover those dots I cut out some hearts from red glitter paper and a heart die.

Choosing the correct size to cover the glue dots showing through the vellum, I glued three hearts (my "splash of color" for the color dare) to the top of the vellum.

I also added some of the red glitter hearts to the inside of the card after I wrote my personalized message. This card is simple, has clean lines, and is full of love!

Happy Paper Crafting,


  1. Love the kraft card stock with the red and white!

  2. What a lovely card! The red with brown really looks great. Thanks for sharing at Color My Heart Color Dare.

  3. Love the kraft and your white heat embossing with your stamped corner floral and your pop of red...striking. Using the vellum for your sentiment so floral shows through is very nice. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare.
