The Creative Crew made quite a challenge for me this month – using a sketch they provided the design team had to pick a color and make a card with the “Lightest to Darkest” shades. I wasn’t exactly sure how to go about this challenge and I can tell you that this was not the first card I made. However, in the end, I did go lightest to darkest with the background and then did the same with the flowers.
The card started with the background being stamped in Melon Mambo for a tone-on-tone effect. I then cut small panels in Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry. The Chalk Talk tag was cut and stamped with two colors of Petite Petal flowers. Flowers were stamped and punched, and curled just a little with the bone folder for a little dimension. Did you notice the new Rich Razzleberry cotton ribbon? It is so pretty and very fun to work with! Buttons, pearls and a sentiment were all added very quickly and easily. This card was lots of fun to make!!
