Good morning sweet friends! Just a housekeeping note – This week is my 7 year blogaversary at Amazing Paper Grace and to celebrate I’m giving away a Spellbinders Artisan X-plorer! To enter just pop over to the post I’m linking up —->HERE and leave a comment. In the meantime, I’m hopping today with the girls from JustRite Papercraft and I’ll be sharing 1 card design in 2 different colorways. I really enjoyed making this project and thinking of all the color combinations that would fly. When I think of color, I also think of occasion – follow my logic . . .
Both designs are elegant, both use the same stamps and die template but I’ll have to admit that one looks markedly masculine and one looks very dressy and feminine. Can’t you see the first card being used for Easter, a Christening or a Wedding? The second card would be suitable for a gentleman, a dignified show of sympathy or perhaps for your pastor. Really to tell the truth, wouldn’t either be appropriate for all of the occasions above, perhaps. So which colorway do you like best?
On top of my 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base I added a panel stamped with Celtic Knot Background. On the light card I stamped and embossed in gold on cream paper. On the dark card I stamped and embossed in black on gold paper. The next layer up is a new die, Spellbinders Floral Assortment which I topped that with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen. On the next layer I cut Spellbinders Classic Square SM and then centered and cut the small motif with at Spellbinders Floral Assortment from the same piece of cardstock to make a frame. I stamped my sentiment from Rejoice and Be Glad, on a panel cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG. I know, it doesn’t look like an oval, but I make the oval arch and tuck it into the square frame I created and it gives the card some dimension. Here are some closer shots so you can see what I mean.
