Color Dare #426 - Let's Flamingle!

Welcome to my blog, Paper Crafting With Rebecca! In order to maintain this blog, this page may contain affiliate links and I will be compensated (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase after clicking my links. Thank you for your support! 

I has been awhile since I entered a Color Dare so I decided I better remedy that and start 2021 with a tropical feel! This week's challenge rules can be found at:

To keeps things simple I made this video for you showing the basics of my card design. I would love to hear what you think about it, or if you have any suggestions, in the comments below. I will also include some still shots below with a few more details in case you would like to make something similar.

The paper and ink colors I chose to meet the challenge requirements were:

Flamingo, Nectarine, and Lagoon from Close to my Heart

I wish I could remember where I got this stamp set from! I threw away the majority of the packaging. However, from what remains on the card (the part I didn't cut off and throw away) I believe it is a Stephanie Barnard stamp set.

A few other little details:
  • For embellishments I used some washi tape from my stash and Nuvo Drops.
  • I made my card base out of white cardstock cut to 10" x 7" and folded in half.
  • The liquid adhesive I use is Art Glitter Glue that I pour into a fine tipped bottle for ease of application.
  • The foam adhesive squares I used on this card are from the Dollar Tree.

The colors, textures and dimension make this card a fun one! If you have any questions I didn't answer in this blog then be sure to leave them for me in the comment section below and I will try to answer them.

Thank you  for reading my little blog and...

Happy Paper Crafting!
