Flowers of Friendship Thank You Card. Crafty Collaborations Colour Challenge. September 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

I'm taking part in the Crafty Collaborations blog hop today and we have a colour challenge - you know me - I love a colour challenge.

I decided to play it super simple and add strip of coloured card stock to my mat lay and then emboss with clear embossing powder, so you get a subtle shiny image to the background.

This combo is fabulous!


Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

1pc - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"


Bermuda Bay Card Stock

1pc - 1 7/8" x 5 5/8"

Merry Merlot Card Stock

1pc - 1" x 5 5/8"

Cajun Craze Card Stock

1pc - 1" x 5 5/8"


Take the smaller piece of basic white card stock and add the Bermuda Bay, Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze to it.

Ink up the flower image from Flowers of Friendship in versamark and cover the panel. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set. Add this panel to the card front.

Also, stamp a flower onto a scrap of each Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze and Bermuda Bay and erpeat the embossing process, punch out the the Flower & Leaves punch. 

Cut a shape from the tailored tag punch in basic white, stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and ad towards the bottom left of the card with dimensionals. 

Add the flowers you cut out pulling up the petals slightly to add a bit of dimensionals

I hope you enjoyed today's card, please take a look at the list below and continue through the hop for lots more inspiration for this colour combination
