Hi-ya, friends! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! This being St. Patrick's Day, day of all things Irish and green, I have a card for you that is.....blue. Right. I can assure you I am at least wearing my green today, so no cyber pinches for me please!
This card is for the current color challenge at CR84FN and a challenge at Flourishes to use border punches or die cuts. Wouldn't I just love to win their gorgeous March release?!
I have to admit I've been in a slump lately. After several days away from my craft table last week when I was sick, I have had the hardest time putting anything together. I turned these colors around in my head for several days until I finally decided to make a card for my brother to go with a little care package I'm sending.
I used a color combo of Soft Stone, Basic Gray, Enchanted Evening, and Baja Breeze. All of the cardstock pieces are textured with the Linen & Canvas impression plate. I stamped a border using A Little Argyle on one side, then used the largest diamond in the set as a watermark behind a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages. The notebook edge punch is from EK Success, a staple in my masculine card-making arsenal.
All of the edges were distressed with the edge of my scissors, and I peeled the cardstock back a bit in one corner, just because it felt a little empty. Two Enchanted Evening buttons are the finishing touch.
