I really love the Stampin’ Up! crushed curry color. There is something so lush about it and I find myself reaching for that color quite a bit. It could be that it is perfect for this time of year or that it just adds a pop of color when you need it. I started this card using the sketch from this week’s Retro Sketches. An easy layout and one that if you had to make a number of cards for Christmas or for my card club, you could do so fairly quickly.
I started off with SU!’s sahara sand – a color that I should use more often – then added the DSP and finally the white cardstock with the requisite pop of color. I cut out two tags from the Reverse Confetti’s Tag Me dies – one in white and one in crushed curry. I cut off the crushed curry tag and glued under the white tag. Then I “dirtied” up the white with some of the sahara sand ink.
Finally I added a stamp (that reminds me of dandelions and therefore another reason to use crushed curry) and some hemp and twine and I was done. After looking at it now, I kind of wish I would have added some bling in some way – pearls, rhinestones or candy dots perhaps. Oh well!
