Welcome to the current Cardz 4 Guyz biweekly challenge. Caz picked the theme of “something with a P” for C4G #288. When you are finished here, I hope you hope over to the challenge site to see the inspiration from the rest of the design team.
Here’s my partridge card:
Here’s the Try Stamping on Tuesday challenge banner:
TSOT has partnered with the Double Trouble Challenge as an option. The Double Trouble challenge is to use three different patterns of paper. Here’s that challenge banner:
- My goal for the card was to have a monochromatic card with three pops of one color added. Red, grey, and white really fit the goal.
- I used a Real Red base for the card. It measures 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
- The three DSP (designer series paper patterns come from the Peaceful Place DSP pack from the previous mini catalog. However, any three patterns would work. .
- The background DSP measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
- The smaller panels each measure 4 inches by 2 inches.
- While I had the DSP out, I trimmed a piece to 2-1/2 inches by 6 inches for the envelope flap.
- I cropped both the sentiment circle and the scalloped circle border using the layering circle dies.
- I stamped the pair of partridges on a piece of scrap white cardstock. Next, I colored them with the Smokey Slate blends combo, which kept the partridges in the shades of grey like the rest of the card.
- The white inside panel measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
What I Did:
- I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with the shape in the middle of the card, so I went on Pinterest for inspiration. I found a partridge card by Tina Wardell at Tina’s Crafty Ink Spot and CASE’d her center circle and placement of the partridges. Her coloring of the partridges is stunning, mine is plain to keep with the color scheme.
- Both the inside and outside sentiments come from the Catch You Later stamp set found in the current mini-catalog.
- I didn’t want to add another DSP pattern for the horizontal line on the challenge banner. Therefore, I attached a 4-1/4 inch piece of Read Red sheer ribbon to the card using some tear-and-tape. Then, I used glue dots to attach the black and white gingham ribbon.
- I only popped the sentiment circle and partridges up on dimensionals. . Everything else was adhered using multipurpose glue.
- Finally, I added 5 red dots to the border of the circle.

Have a Peachy Day!
