color inspiration card

I was reading this month’s ScrapSupply newsletter earlier tonight and came across the guest designer section featuring Kristina Werner. I was curious by the caption that said, “Kristina’s Make a Card Monday video was just made a YouTube Featured video”. What’s ‘Make a Card Monday’?, I thought to myself. Low and behold, they are some pretty cool videos that Kristina has posted on YouTube — to the tune of funky music I might add — where she shows how to make a card from start to finish. Brilliant!

Then I went perusing even more and found her blog. Ahhhhhh! [<— this is where that godly sound from heaven kicks in] She's got some really cool project ideas and a weekly "Color Inspiration Challenge". This week's palette is based on this:

So then I thought, hmmmm … I think I could put a card together in the next two hours for this challenge. And voila! (Note: it’s 8 minutes until deadline, I better hustle!)

It’s a 3″ x 6″ card. The base is made out of chocolate card weight paper from Paper Source. I punched out a gazillion little flowers from cream cardstock and glued them to the scalloped background piece. I made the scalloped background piece by punching out two scalloped squares (using the Marvy Uchida pink punch) and then taping them together on the backside as they overlapped a little bit. I covered the seam with the flowers so you can’t tell it’s two pieces. Then I added some of the chipboard alphabet stickers by Heidi Swapp to spell out ‘mom’, and put some rhinestones in the middle of some of the flowers. I used the new bird stamp and embossed onto some of the chocolate cardstock and cut it out closely around the edges.
