CYCI131: Colour Challenge

This week at Can You Case It? is a colour challenge.  With the featuring colours being black, grey and yellow.  Which Yellow and Grey not being my normal go to colours so it was definitely a challenge for me.

Here is my card:


How did I make this card?

  • The base is my go to card base Thick Whisper White A6 (210 x 148mm scored at 105mm).
  • The background is regular Whisper White cut to 100 x 143mm.  This is where I stamped the 5 dots stamp in Crushed Curry from the Penned & Painted Stamp set.  The flower also from the same stamp set is in Basic Black Archival Ink.
  • The Vellum pieces is cut to 95 x 138mm and I have used the Envelope Punch Board to create the file folder look at the top and trimmed the excess off.
  • I stamped the Happy and {Again} sentiments from the Number of Years Stamp Set in the Basic Black and set it with the Heat Tool.
  • The 21 is has been embossed in White on Smoky Slate and the ST also on Smoky Slate and stamped in Basic Black.
  • I adhered all the layers using Snail Adhesive and numbers adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  1. Fantastic card Lauren and even more awesome considering these aren’t your usual mix of colours. I love how you have softened the background with the vellum. Thanks for joining us at CYCI – Chlo x
