Did you hear? I went on an awesome trip. Not the kind to Cancun or the Bahamas, either. I slipped and twisted my leg badly – dislocated my knee and tore up some ligaments. Booo hiss! This is not how I want to be spending my summer!
Things are getting better slowly but surely and I am at least able to get around to the crafting table more often these days! Cindy, over at Papers Pads and Pictures had a fun idea for the new challenge. . . and a lot of cool bonus information on your favorite colors!
I’m not gonna lie. I had a hard time with this one. I love gem or jewel tones best. Ruby red, emerald green, amethyst purple, sapphire blue. . I love red and purple together! But if I have to narrow it down to just one, I will choose some pretty shades of purple. Two of my favorite ink colors by Close To My Heart are Gypsy and Pansy Purple. I used them together, along with the You And Me stamp set (D1495) to make this fun purple tri-fold card. I have made lots of Birthday and Christmas tri-fold cards in the past – but this one seems like it could be for just about any occasion.
I love that swirly flourish stamp, and I used one of my favorite latest techniques . . . I used my iRock tool to affix some purple gems to the ends of the swirls. Here is a little closeup.
Oh, and if you need a little brush-up on that tri-fold pattern, my video is still here on YouTube!
Be sure to stop over at Cindy’s and enter your card for the challenge – your favorite-color card can be any style, occasion, layout, sketch or design that you like, but it has to be your favorite color! As a bonus, leave me a message. . . tell me what your favorite color is, and why? Do you have one particular color or shade of cardstock or ink that you just have to have?
Thanks for stopping by!
