Color Fusers Blog Hop for November, 2018
November 05, 2018
Welcome to the Color Fusers blog hop for November. You might have come from Debbie's blog. That is one talented person! I know you saw a great project.
This month we are using the colors Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla. I'm featuring the First Frost bundle with the First Frost stamp set and the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.
These colors did come together nicely, don't you think? The card base is Bermuda Bay measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Next comes a layer of Early Espresso cut at 3 3/4 x 5. The Crumb Cake patterned paper is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. It measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
The sentiment for this card comes from the Country Home stamp set. Stamp in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla. The framelits have 2 frames that nestle together. Cut the vanilla paper with the smaller frame. The larger frame is cut from Bermuda Bay. Glue this to the center of the card.
Cut about 4 of the Early Espresso branches. If you really want to save paper, cut these from the espresso layer before you add it to the card. Be careful to cut inside the layer so no cuts will show.
For the front of the card, stamp 3 of the larger flowers in Coastal Cabana and 4 of the smaller flowers in Bermuda Bay. Arrange the flowers and the branches around the saying. I tried to place some of the branches behind the flowers and a few in front to add interest. Some of the flowers are on dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Country Home set. Stamp in Early Espresso. Stamp the larger flower in Coastal Cabana in the corner. Then stamp the smaller flowers in Bermuda Bay. This will work since the smaller flowers are in a darker color. Make a mask for the large flower. To do this stamp the flower on a post it note. Be sure you get part of it on the back of the sticky part. Cut this out. Stick the post it to the large flower. Now stamp the Early Espresso branch. Be careful that the ends of the branch do not stamp below. If you see that it will, simple lay down some scrap paper to protect that surface. When you remove the post it, it will look like the branch comes from behind the flowers.
It's so easy to make beautiful cards with the First Frost bundle. I highly recommend it!
