This week’s Global Design Project color challenge will definitely take you far from Halloween and Christmas – Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango and Lemon Lime Twist are a fresh, flirty combination. I adore the combination of these orange colors and bright green. My card is equally as fresh and bright as these colors. Here’s my card:
- Ribbon of Courage Bundle. The Ribbon of Courage bundle is such a great set for any show of support and encouragement. The set was designed by Patty Bennett (in coordination with Stampin’ Up! designers) to celebrate Patty’s $1 million in sales and honors Patty’s mother’s battle with cancer. The set is not limited to health issues, though. This sweet flower and coordinating leaves work beautifully with this sentiment to offer any level of encouragement. I love how the flower and coordinating leaves layer. Here’s a look at this bundle:
- Peekaboo! Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango – how in the world am I going to find a paper that incorporates both of them. Aaaah! The gorgeous Painted Autumn Designer Series has a gorgeous page of watercolored paper that pulls from both of these oranges. Yay! I built the rest of my card around this panel of paper. Love when that happens! Here’s a look at the other colors and patterns in Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper:
- A Different Size. You might not be able to tell from the picture above (or from holding the card in your hand, for that matter) that this isn’t the standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base. To mix things up a bit, I shaved 1/4″ of the side and top of this card. It still fits in a standard envelope, so all’s good, right? It’s a small change, but it makes a difference. <3
