Welcome to week 3 of our Colour Creations blog hop format for 2020-21!
Today we are showcasing a very dark neutral – Basic Gray – and I’ve teamed it with other neutrals to make an all-purpose masculine slimline card. I’ve deliberately left the inside blank so I can use it for a variety of occasions.
My friend Kate has been making the most fabulous cards with the new Hats Off bundle so I finally caved in and bought it too. I’m so glad I did – what a great bundle for masculine, teenager (and feminine) cards!
There are so many cute little elements in this bundle and options for decorating the emblem on the front of the cap and you can make this cap in any colour you like! I’ve got some great ideas for this bundle…watch this space!
If you take a closer look at the emblem I chose for my cap I think you’ll understand why I decided to pair the Hats Off bundle with the Mountain Air Stamp set and Majestic Mountain dies.
They really were made to to be used together, don’t you think?
To make a quick and easy matching envelope for my slimline card I’ve simply decorated a standard business envelope by adhering a stamped panel of card Sahara Sand card stock to the front of the envelope. I deliberately trimmed the Sahara Sand card stock layer to be smaller than the envelope so there was a border of white that matched the design of the card itself.
The sentiment also perfectly matches the Mountain Air stamp set and was stamped in Basic Gray and die cut using a stitched rectangle die.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Rachel Palmieri.
