Unexpected Color Combination

So this weekend I managed to squeeze in time for creating a card for Emma's challenge a Her throwback challenge this week was to use the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and the colors blue, brown, and red to create a card.

I really struggled with the combination of colors. So I started by finding three papers in those colors that I felt worked together. Luckily, I found exactly what I was looking for in a retired Creative Memories Storybox. (I've found that card making is a great way to use up some of my older Storybox papers.) Then I used the foundation card in the Stretch Your Imagination cart to cut out the card base in cream cardstock. Then the Flrsh3 Shadow and Blackout cuts for the two layers and the birdhouse was last. I repeated the cream cardstock in the Layer cut of the birdhouse. I also made a matching envelope for this 3" card, but I'll tell you about that in a post later this week.


  1. ohhh I like this! The colors are great together. Look forward to hearing about your envelope!
