Cute Card ~ Color Dare #532

 Well this is our last challenge for 2022. It's been a fun year and we look forward to a lot of fun challenges in 2023. 

For this challenge you need to use shades of Blue and Purple + one color of your choice. See the fine print in the graphic for more details. My colors are Sapphire, Wisteria + Green Apple. When you're ready click here to go directly to this challenge.

I've been in a mood for CAS style cards and this is another. I saw something similar online and was inspired to give it a spin. 

The card started with a base from our White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack. You really want to keep this item on hand! Cardstock used: White Daisy, Sapphire, Wisteria. Exclusive Inks: Intense Black, Sapphire, Green Apple. TriBlend Markers: shown in the photo.  Making these choices got me started on my card.

I used our Floral Slimline Embossing Folder (link is below). Even though I wasn't making a slimline card the folder still works! I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4". This left a bit of a border along the sides but I liked that look. 

After the card was all together I added some embellishments. The stamped layer is popped up on Thin Foam Tape. I used some Silver Thread and Sapphire Thread (both retired) and tacked it underneath the the stamped layer with a Glue Dot. Silver Pearls was used for the flowers. The fine tip Quicksilver Metallic Marker added some detail to the watering can. I also inked the edges of the stamped layer.
