One day I was getting ready for a card exchange with friends and I was trying to come up with something to share!! I had been thinking that I wanted to make something Primary colored and masculine! I found the message stamp from an SU! stamp set called Alphabet Soup that I decided to use – the next step was how to stamp it. I decided to use markers and color on the stamp to make this greeting primary colored as well. From there I decided to go with a color box approach for a background. I looked for scraps in the colors I wanted and cut them in the sizes that I thought looked the best and they were the following:
- Yellow – piece #1: 1 1/4″ by 4″, piece # 2: 1″ by 1 1/2″
- Red – 2 5/8″ by 1 1/2″
- Blue – piece #1: 1 1/4″ by 1 1/4″, piece # 2: 2 5/8″ by 1 3/8″
- Green – 3″ by 1″
The white piece for the message measures 2″ by 2 1/4″. The black layer behind the message is 2 1/4″ by 2 1/2″.
Now that all those measurements are floating around in your brain, let’s have a look at the card:
On each scrap was stamped something from an SU! stamp set called Little Things. I used Versamark inkpad to get the tone on tone look! Adding 3 brads to the corner yellow piece pulled the colors throughout the card and gave it harmony. This card took a while but we mass produced it so each of the friends went home with 5 of this card, and whenever I pulled out this card to mail it I was grateful to have them done ahead of time!!
Thanks for looking today, I am so glad you stopped by!!
