Welcome to the Stampers Dozen monthly blog hop. We are so glad you’re here! This month, we feature cards and projects that use only TWO colors! (That was hard for me!)
Be sure to visit each participating stamper to gain inspiration for your paper crafting. Look for a list of blogs at the end of this post. We like to hear your comments, too!
Gorgeously Made Two-Tone Card
Like I mentioned above, limiting my self to just two colors was challenging. In the end, I chose Pretty Peacock and Gray Granite. I also used the Gorgeously Made stamp set and coordinating Gorgeously Made Dies. Purchase them as a bundle and save 10 percent. Find them on page 103 of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog.
Here are some details about the card:
- Gray Granite card stock base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
- Panel: Gray Granite card stock layer measuring 5 1/4 x 4
- Stamp image three times on Gray Granite panel. I inked the stamp with Pretty Peacock and then “stamped off” on my grid paper twice before applying to the panel — creating a subtle background.
- Embossed this stamped panel with one of the designs from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. Find these online here.
- Die cut the image shown with the Pretty Peacock sheet from the Soft Shimmer 12 x 12 Paper Combo Pack.
- Stamped the thank you sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink on Gray Granite card stock and die cut with label from dies.
- Die cut the “notebook edge” die with the Pretty Peacock design from the Glorious Gingham 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.
- Added Linen Thread and gems from the Tinsel Gems Four-Pack.
I also had to try this card with Berry Burst and Crumb Cake. Which is your favorite?
