Are you ready for a unique ‘fall’ color challenge? Okay…so here’s the story behind this. Connie and I try to ‘match’ up sets that we are using for a Create with Connie and Mary collection when we doing our Thursday Challenges. Now I design the challenges often well ahead of when we set up a Collection. So I had this GREAT color challenge planned and it fell on the week Connie and I were doing HALLOWEEN on Create with Connie and Mary Fall Collection 2013. Now we are good BUT…there was NO WAY we going to figure this color combo out for HALLOWEEN!!! So we asked our wonderful design team if we could switch things around I decided this would be a perfect fall color combo…WORKS FOR ME!!!
So now that you know the story behind this color combo here’s my card details…base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White. I took another piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Pretty Prints Embossing Folder, layered on Soft Sky and added to the card front. I used the Wonderfall set and Autumn Accents die and did the leaves with matching ink – Maple – Wisteria Wonder, Medium Leaf – Pistachio Pudding, Small Leaf – Soft Sky, I made a ‘bow’ form Whisper White 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, added a Pistachio Pudding Boutique Details on top and added to the leaves. I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey and Wisteria Wonder on Whisper White, cut into a banner, added Pistachio Pudding Stretch Ruffled Ribbon along the bottom and added to the card front. I added the leaves to finish it off. NOTE: When adding the banner and leaves you want to make sure it doesn’t go longer than 5 1/2″ so it fits in a regular sized envelope.
