Geometrical

CCMC290It’s Thursday!  The best thing about Thursday?  Only one more day until Friday!  The other BEST thing about Thursday?  Time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge – and this week…it’s a color challenge!

Have you ever sat down to make a card and messed with it, and messed with it, and messed with it and then just finally said ENOUGH!  Well…that was this card.  LOVE the colors…but just having a tough time sometimes using things from the Occasions Mini.  (That and my mojo had gone south for the winter and I think is sitting on a beach somewhere without me!)  This is actually the THIRD card I made for the challenge today and I just said ENOUGH!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Daffodil Delight – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 3 then cut on an angle.  Add some Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo Triangle Punch piece and run through the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.
  • Add a strip of Island Indigo along the top and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut out the third to smallest heart in Smoky Slate, run through the Arrows Embossing Folder, sponge with Smoky Slate and add to card using dimensionals.
  • Punch out 2nd to smallest heart from Island Indigo, sponge using Island Indigo ink.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Wrap a piece of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon around card.
  • Stamp greeting using Versamark on Whisper White 3 x 1/2.  Emboss using Smoky Slate Embossing Folder, cut into a banner and add to card front sing dimensionals.
  • Tie Silver 1/8″ Ribbon in Crushed Curry medium button and add using glue dot.

  1. Today’s post made me laugh Mary – small consolation I know, but we all have days like this! Third time lucky I say – this card has a great mix of shapes and textures and has lots of visual interest. It works for me!

  2. I totally understand how you feel!! Lol! But this is such a FUN card!! What a great way to use the triangle punch! Very creative!!

  3. Mary, you made me laugh because on the beach is where I want to be! Enough snow already! I really like your card – mojo or not. It is different and I like the combination of textures and shapes!

  4. I really like the idea of adding the triangles to the card and then emboss them. What a great combination!

  5. Your creativity has no bounds Mary!! I LOVE the triangles embossed into the bottom of the card….just so stinkin’ clever!!!
