Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Rebecca Ednie our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.
Apparently one of Rebecca's favorite colours to use in the fall is copper. Create your card using copper accents. Maybe some copper embossing, mirror cardstock, metal embellies like paperclips, brads, sequins, eyelets or gems.
I seldom use copper in any of my cards I create, but fortunately I did have a few sheets of Copper metallic/pearlescent cardstock in my stash so of course I pulled that out.
I recently received Your Next Stamp's Slim Stripe Panel die set which I have been wanting to play with. I decided to use that for my card today and have a copper/black color combo. As you can see I also added sliver to my card for some extra interest.
I used Catherine Pooler Designs Celebrate Die for the large sentiment which I covered with Copper Glitter and then layered to a white and black oval and adhered to the centre of the card.
I added a birthday sentiment from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips - Birthday stamp set with coordinating dies.
I also added a few copper flat gems randomly around the card.
For the inside of my card I die cut another of the Slim Stripe Panels from black cardstock and paper pieced the copper and silver stripes into the panel. This was then cut in half and adhered to both edges of my card.
I decided to create a double pop-up using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I have created double Katherine Label Pop-ups previously but hadn't thought about using them in Slimline cards which I will be doing a lot more in the future.
I added to birthday sentiments from an older MFT Stamps birthday greetings stamp set.
