Recently, I have a need to send someone a card to thank him for a thoughtful, not asked for help, act of kindness. In my stamp collection I found a perfect sentiment for such occasion. I also have a need to make a challenge card, lol. Therefore I will combine these two tasks into one and for lack of a better phrase…. “git ‘er done”!
This week, the Global Design Project tasks us to make a card featuring three specific colors. Although my card is destined for a man, I think the message will over ride the slightly feminine colors. I started with a card base that is scored and folded to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (standard US card size) and added a layer of pink that is just 1/8″ smaller in overall measurement. Sizing the paper in this way will allow there to be an accent of the color but not allow it to take over the project overall.
The card face is vanilla and I have added a panel of vellum cardstock that has the sentiment embossed in silver. The addition of one pearl and a length of silver thread keep the design from being too simple.
Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card project. Links are here that you can click to get product info and purchase items as well. Thank you for your support with your purchase 🙂
I hope you will visit the Global Design Project’s Challenge Page by CLICKING HERE to see all of the wonderful cards. I think it is fascinating to see different crafters interpret the same challenge guidelines in so many ways. This challenge is open to anyone that wants to participate, so feel free to post a card of your own!
Thanks for stopping by today. I am happy we could make it together 🙂
