It's time for another fun AAA Cards this week.... this week we are challenging you with making a card with Easter colours.
Don't you love the pretty pastel colours of the Easter candy in the picture? I did and that is where I took the inspiration for my card:
I started with the MFT Floral Fusion Cover Up die - I cut it from Neenah Solar White cardstock. I then took a standard card made from the same card stock and masked an area that corresponded to the inside of the Floral Fusion frame. I sponged on some of my pastel Distress Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Milled Lavender, and Dried Marigold followed by spritzing the whole thing with some Tsukineko Shimmer Spray. It gives the whole panel a nice shimmer - that unfortunately does not show up in the photo.
Because I don't generally give Easter cards, I made it into a Birthday card by adding a a Clearly Besotted word die cut. I did layer a strip of vellum in between the greeting and the card to stop it from getting lost in the background.
I will link this card up to the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where anything goes
- TIME OUT - where we are challenged to be CAS
Now it's your turn to join in the AAA fun here....
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
