Thank You Card
Freshly Made Sketches #195. The second one is for Color My Heart Color Dare #150.
I am going to be very honest. Both of these were a challenge for me. I took one look at the sketch design for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and thought, "Ugh. That doesn't inspire me at all." Then, I went to the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge and thought, "I never use those colors together except at Halloween." That's when I decided that I had to take on both challenges, because I knew it would stretch me :).
I am so glad I did, because not only do I like the results, I also got out of my comfort zone and grew a little during the process!
In addition to these two challenges, I wanted to create this card for a "Make & Take" I am doing tonight. So, it also had to be something that I could mass produce cost efficiently and be easy enough for others to recreate. And, all of the products had to be current, which means I had to set aside some of my favorites (lol). I think they will be pleased.
Here are my ingredients:
CTMH white daisy card base
CTMH Stamp Sets: Honeycomb (C1537), Finding the Words (D1646), Wild Wonders (C1558), Your Own Kind of Wonderful (D1627)
CTMH White Daisy cardstock
CTMH damask embossing folder
CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge (hexagons and font)
CTMH 3D foam tape
CTMH dye inks: slate, sweet leaf and autumn terracotta (I don't have Sunset which is what the color dare called for).
CTMH Liquid Glass (adhere the butterfly to card)
Other ingredients: slate cardstock and clear glitter glue (both Michaels).
Thanks for stopping by! -Dari
