Saffron/Turquoise/Red Card Challenge

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 30, 2007 in Cards

Today’s SplitCoastStamper challenge was to use Real Red, So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise on a card.  Sounds like an odd color combination, but it’s one I really like and have used before.

Here’s my card for the challenge:

Merry And Bright Card

I used the Merry and Bright Stampin’ Up! stamp set – the snowflakes are stamped on the background, the trees are on the left side and the snowman is in the circle.  The trees and snowman are colored with markers (I wanted this card to have a very bright look). 

I received the new Build-A-Brad kit from Stampin’ Up! yesterday and wanted to try it out.  I stamped the snowflakes from Snow Flurries on white cardstock and punched them out with a 1/2 inch circle punch.  Then I adhered them to the tops of the brads and inserted the clear pebbles on top – really cool! I used three of them as the tree toppers on this card. 

I punched out the snowman with a 1 1/4 inch circle punch then went to layer it with my 1 3/8 circle punch…but I realized that I had lent it out.  So…I improvised and used my Coluzzle to cut a larger circle then layered it onto a scallop punch.

Fun challenge!
