Hello everyone! Today I am sharing another card I created for the Papercraft Star Design Team. This week's challenge is to create any project using a photo as your inspiration (see bottom of this post).
For my card, I pulled from the orange and gray colors in the photo to create something a little fun for any occasion worth celebrating!
Isn't this card so fun?! The color combination is something I would have never thought of, but now that I tried it, I just love the results! That's exactly why I love playing along with color challenges - they always push you to try something new.
I chose papers from My Mind's Eye - Stella and Rose (Mabel) and Cosmo Cricket's Upcycle. To give my paper a little more "umph", I embossed the gray paper and sanded the raised portion with a file. The result is a nice, soft texture!
I folded and pleated my rusty orange satin ribbon with a simple hot glue gun. Nothing fancy, just glue and fold...glue and fold. Then, I added a new crinkle ribbon color. To me, the colors remind me of a sunset. A little yellow, with peeks of orange bursts. So pretty!
Then, I added a pop of purple because in the inspirational photo, there is a small purple flower sitting behind the sofa. You have to look real close to see it!
And what card wouldn't be complete without a fun sentiment from Waltzingmouse? Again, I am loving the rusty orange and gray color combo. It's such a refreshing change. I will have to remember this for making cards in the fall.
Well, I hope this card leaves you inspired to play along in the challenge at Papercraft Star. I'd love to see what you create with this fun color combo. Here are the details...
