This month at HOC we have a colour combo/photo inspiration challenge. For the next two weeks we'd like you to make and link up CAS or Classic & Elegant style cards using the picture below for inspiration - you can use the colours, the picture or both as your inspiration!
I used some of the colours plus a bird for my Classic & Elegant style card - I was very happy to ink up the Inkadinkado pretty bird image again! I embossed some lavender coloured Core'dinations CS with the Birds & Swirls folder, scuffed the embossing with sandpaper and layered the panel onto a black mat. I threaded two strips of ribbon through a metal ribbon slider, taped the ends behind the panel and adhered it to the 5 3/4" square Smoky Slate card base. I stamped the bird twice and fussy cut the second bird and popped it up. I punched tiny flowers and added gems to the centres and popped up the sentiment to complete the card front.
Here's the inside and the envelope. I stamped a bold birthday sentiment and punched larger flowers for the inside of the card.
So that's my card based on the photo and the other DT members have got fabulous inspiration for you so do check that out before you make your own fab creation! Whatever you create make sure to link it up for us at HOC.
