The color challenge for the Paper Players #486 challenge consists of Seaside Spray, So Saffron, and Gray Granite. I thought those soft, subtle colors would pair very well with the Fab Friday 187 sketch challenge.

Here’s my card:

Here are the challenge banners that inspired my card:

Can I just tell you how stinking thrilled I am that I was able to get these banners next to each other??

A Rather Easy Card with an Updated Blog Site

There’s a very good reason I put off updating my blog site. Everything changes with an update and I need to learn how to use it. Therefore, this is going to be very short and sweet.

I used the Flowering Foils DSP cropped with the second largest Stitched Nesting Label die for the center panel. This pattern really caught my attention and I thought that it would make a beautiful floral pattern. I decided to use the dark Seaside Spray blend and the light So Saffron blend to color the petals. The only problem is that I kept losing the pattern as I was coloring. Hindsight is 20/20, and looking at it now, I will color the petals differently next time.

The base of the card is Gray Granite, followed by a layer of Seaside Spray. I ran the top piece of So Saffron through the Big Shot using the Subtle 3D embossing folder.

While I did use the Gray Granite marker to outline the stitches in the ditch, it looks like I used silver, which also works. The card really needed a little something to finish it off, so I used the Gray Granite textured weave ribbon tied in a square knot.

Finishing Up

Finally, I had to figure out something to do with the sentiment. I really did not want to cover up the DSP because it does all the work. Therefore, I used one of the smallest Stitched Label diesto crop the birthday sentiment stamped in Gray Granite. I trimmed the label so it would show just up to the ribbon.

Now, all I had to do was use dimensionals to pop up the DSP and the sentiment block. After adding a piece of the Subtle 6 x 6 inch DSP to the envelope flap, finished this card/envelope set.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I’d love to hear what you think, and every comment is greatly appreciated!

Please stay safe, healthy, and isolated as much as possible. I miss my high school kids and the relationships we’ve formed. My heart breaks for my seniors. But, by working together and following the CDC guidelines, we can all help to flatten the curve.

Have a Peachy Day!
