Orange & Blue Card

One more post for today. It's still snowing.

Here's a card I made for some Thursday challenges:

CASE Study
CAS(E) this Sketch
The Play Date Cafe
Inspired By

This card was harder to make than it looks. I cut out 3 strips of each color, then glued them down in different orders on white cardstock. Then I measured and cut each piece to fit onto the card. Then I cut the white cardstock to fit on the card front, and I marked and cut the cardstock so it would fit like a puzzle. You can't really see the detail very well in the photo, but here is a side view so you can see the dimension.

To make the flower, I stamped the larger petals in Outdoor Denim and cut them out, then I stamped the smaller petals in Sunset and cut them out, then layered them and secured them with a corduroy brad. I like the retro look. The isnpiration photo at Inspired By inspired me to use navy on my card and add a flower.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Outdoor Denim, Sunset, Lagoon, Colonial White
Stamps: Dreamin' WOTG
Ink: Black, Outdoor Denim, Sunset
Other: vellum (not CTMH), Sunset Mini Medleys
