This week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge is PERFECT for a masculine card – browns and blues are a wonderful combination for any type of card, but they provide a wonderful foundation for a great card for any guy. Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand – I would have never paired these three, but I’m happy for this challenge because it gave me a great chance to use some new products on a card I love. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Brick Wall Embossing Folder. The new textured impressions embossing folders in this year’s catalog are wider than ever – each of them measures 6″ x 6″, allowing us to easily position the image vertical or horizontal on our card. The modern and cool Brick Wall TIEF adds just the right amount of texture to the background of this card. While you might think Whisper White or Cajun Craze for bricks, the Sahara Sand brick backdrop is quite cool!
- Expressions Natural Elements. As I sorted my product shares, I fell deep in love with the wooden sentiments in the Expressions Natural Elements. Congrats, Thanks and Celebrate. With just a couple drops of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue, my intricate sentiment was ready to go!
- Banner Triple Punch. With the new Triple Banner Punch, I can always get a clean, centered banner tip. I don’t play by the rules all the time, so I intentionally made a lop-sided banner tip – and I like it! Adds quite a bit of intrigue to the card, don’t you think? I’ll be sharing a video soon with some tips and tricks for using this new punch.
