DeNami color challenge-by Lori
Time for another challenge! This time it's a color challenge. Navy Blue, Lime Green, and White. It was a family affair for this challenge...my 7 year old decided she wanted to enter a card of her own. (See Abby's very own post immediately following this one!)
For "Mommy's card", I went completely out of my comfort zone. It's not often that you see a card posted that doesnt contain a cute kid or darling critter. I bought these stamps at Stamp-A-Way last August and figured they would look really nice with the colors.
To start, I used the Small Solid Filigree around the edges of the card and the Decorative Crest Circle stamp for the center. I used white embossing powder, because that's really the only way to make white images pop!
I used spellbinders dies to cut the various layers (4 layers but the scanned image never shows the dimension) The white layer is embossed using a Stampin Up Sizzix folder for texture.
Last, I used my lime ribbon for a bow...every Lori card must have a bow and then created small loops of ribbon to tuck in between the layers.
Usually when I enter contests, it's because I want to win...but not this time...Go Abby! She worked so hard on her card!
