February Card Chain Challenge

I made this card to send to Joanne for the February Card Chain Challenge using the Colour Palette Option (Pewter, Ruby & Lapis) and the Theme Option (Friendship).

I trimmed a piece of red textured card so it was slightly smaller than the front of the card blank and then trimmed a piece of blue textured card slightly smaller than the red panel.  These were then layered and attached to the card.  I cut a piece of white card so it was slightly smaller than the blue panel and stencilled a grey border across the top section.  I die cut 'hello' from the lower corner (setting aside the small pieces from inside the sentiment) before attaching the panel to the card.  I die cut 'hello' from both blue and red card.  I inlaid the blue 'hello' into the card together with the small pieces of white card I had set aside.  The red 'hello' was attached over the top to create a shadow effect.  I die cut three red flowers and three blue flower centres and attached these across the card.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" white matt card blank
     Altenew 'Hello' and Creative Dies 'Flower' dies
     Funky Fossil 'Stacked Lines' stencil
     Memento Gray Flannel ink
     Red and blue textured card and white matt card

I really love this one, especially how you have incorporated the blue as the highlight just peaking out from the different elements. Brilliant xx

I love the deep red and cobalt blue card you have used for the pretty flowers and sentiment, and the grey vertical lines stencilled as a border behind the flowers works beautifully. x

The subtle pewter stripes are lovely in real life, as the card on the shelf in my kitchen can confirm! It’s a lovely card, thank you Kath!
