Welcome to week nineteen of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop! This week we are using one of my most used and absolute favourite colours: Crumb Cake!
Unfortunately, I just didn’t have the time to really do this colour justice. I had so many ideas in my head and wanted to make several cards, however I only had time to make a Father’s Day card for my dad…and I had to make it in record time!
This style of card is called a side step card and I’ve used a brand new bundle from the September – December Mini Catalogue.
The Forever Forest bundle is just perfect for masculine cards, sympathy card, nature cards and Christmas cards.
A side step card is a great card for scenes, as the side steps add instant dimension and depth to the scene.
Normally, the mountains would be in the background, however I needed to have the trio of stamped and die cut trees at the back so they didn’t cover the other elements. I’ve used a mixture of stampining, sponging and die cutting to create all the trees, boulders and mountains
The colour combination for this card is drawn from the colours in this sheet of One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper. Crumb Cake, Pebbled Path, Basic White and Mossy Meadow also thrown into the mix.
The same sheet of One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper also dresses up the envelope flap.
And, yes, the card folds flat to fit into a standard C6 envelope.
The Father’s Day sentiment is from the He’s All That Stamp Set.
