Hello crafty friends! Today I have a super easy to make card for you, which requires no stamping at all! Seriously! And you can still have a sentiment! Wanna see?
When I made this card in preparation for the Colour Me…! challenge this week, I did not have any ink that came even close to Calypso Coral (that’s the color we are using in this week’s monochromatic challenge), so I had to resort to the patterned SU paper only. It’s amazing how creative you get if your supplies are limited, it’s actually a lot of fun to have to restrict yourself to certain products. All you need for a card like this is a sentiment die, another die of any shape, some nice patterned paper and some adhesive.
As you can see in the video, this card took no time at all to make. The big butterfly window is what shines on this card and makes the challenge color the focal point. I’m still thrilled about the “happy accident” that made me put the patterned paper underneath the white sentiment, not on top of it. I feel that the way I did it, it doesn’t distract but adds just the right amount of color to keep the “hello” legible.
I hope you enjoyed the video and I hope to see you over at the Colour Me…! challenge blog with your own creations! Thanks for stopping by!
