Hi, everyone! It’s the first Thursday of November so that means it’s time for another MFT Color Palette Challenge! This month’s colors are: Red Hot, Berrylicious, Sour Apple, and Grout Gray—a really festive color combo and just perfect for a holiday card.
I REALLY love this color combo! It is perfect for so many occasions—or none, LOL! I’m thinking I’ll be using this one again soon ;-)
Today I’m also sharing a video showing how I make my (obviously) favorite background—one I call Colorful Diagonal Stripes. In this video I also show how I constructed today’s card. To view it, either click on the button below or you can watch in HD HERE on my YouTube channel.
Here’s a quick run-though of how I made this card, too. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then, on another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock, I stamped up my background, using the single image from Plaid Builder Background and Sour Apple dye ink, Berrylicious dye ink, Red Hot dye ink, and Grout Gray dye ink. Next I stamped the sentiment, from BB Cool Day on the side of the card base with Black Licorice hybrid ink. I cut some mittens from X-Press It Blending Card using BB Cool Day Die-namics, stamped the image from BB Cool Day with Black Licorice hybrid ink (the strings were stamped with Grout Gray dye ink) and colored them with Copic markers in the challenge colors. Once they dried, I heat embossed the tiny snowflakes from BB Cool Day on the mittens. On a piece of Grout Gray card stock, I stamped the snowflake trio from LJD Snowflake Splendor with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I trimmed that down, added a strip of my stamped background and popped it up on foam on the base. I popped up the mittens and was done.
Here’s the inside, with a sentiment from Cozy Greetings.
And that’s all I have for you today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
