Inky Paw's Challenge 164 - Color Challenge

Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We are at the halfway point of this current challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge!

For this challenge I used the following Newton’s Nook Design’s product.

Heartfelt Love

Heart Frame Die Set

Banner Trio Die Set

To create the top part of my card, I first stamped out my image from the Heartfelt Love Stamp.

Using the challenge colors, I colored all the hearts in.

I tried to keep a good balance of color keeping in mind that

I was going to be using a red banner for my sentiment.

Now that all the color was done, I die-cut out my heart using the Heart Frame Die Set.

These were glued to a basic piece of white card stock.

These two layers will keep the card base nice and rigid.

Once the glue was dry, I die-cut out my base with largest heart from the Heart Frame Die Set.

To assemble my card, I lined up the top and bottom of the card together.

I marked a place with my pencil where I wanted the brad to go.

Then using an awl (with a craft mat underneath) I punched a hole in my card.

I did not use a hole punch, because the many layers of this card are too thick for the average hole punch.

After adding in my brad and testing the hinge, I noticed that the card did not move smoothly.

A piece of heavy cardstock glued to back of the top layer will create a spacer for the brad.

To finish this card, created a banner using red card stock and the Banner Trio Die Set.

I embossed on my sentiment and added my banner to the front with foam tape.

I slid open the card and stamped on the suprise sentiment.

For a final touch I added some bling with a silver gel pen to my gray hearts.


That completes my take on this challenge.
