Saturday means there’s a new theme over at Our Creative Corner ~ this time it’s a color challenge offered up by our very creative host, Anne Marie Hile. The challenge is to create a holiday card using four colors (light pink, light blue, red, and white) plus a touch of sparkle.
I made my card with papers from the new Jovial Line by Basic Grey. I took the pink sheet of patterned paper and cut nine squares from one of the Sizzix Originals square frame dies. I inked them very lightly with brushed corduroy distress ink before running them through my Xyron for adhesive. The squares are filled with decorative sticker from the same Jovial line. I used an EK notebook punch for the left edge and spritzed it all with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist by Ranger before adhering it to my black card.
Now for the chuckle (or groan)… check out the card I posted yesterday. This was supposed to be today’s OCC card…. notice all four colors + the sparkle of the embossed flower? Yep. Notsomuch on the ‘thank you’ which I realized when I was all done and about to post.
I’m terrible about reading recipes, too, and fairly often find out I’ve skipped a somewhat important step. Oh, well. Luckily I had time to think of something else and these new Basic Grey items all played very nicely together and satisfied the challenge.
Can’t wait to see what you’ll make this week! Please join us.
