This week at Our Creative Corner we have a special challenge for you - we're looking to add some new members to our design team, so for our challenge we want you to make a card that showcases your style and tell us what makes it yours. Of course the team will be providing inspiration with creations that show our individual styles. I hope my card captures some of my favorite aspects of card making - it doesn't use *everything* I would consider to be "my style" but there are definitely elements that really speak to me.
My card was inspired by Heather Summer's card here - you will see the elements I kept but I think I also put a lot of my own ideas into it. The colors came from a challenge that's new to me - CR84FN. They asked for aqua, green and yellow, so I combined So Saffron with two of the new In Colors, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade. We'll be making this card at my club this weekend.
One thing that usually characterizes my cards is a tendency toward clean and simple - and in this case I used even fewer layers than I usually do! So much for my typical style, LOL. But I didn't want to take away from the softer colors. I used a saffron base, a limeade panel embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder, and a strip of Pool Party cut with the Tasteful Trim die. I added pearls on the scallops, Old Olive satin ribbon, and a punched sentiment from Short & Sweet. I like putting the sentiments vertically when the layout doesn't lend itself to another placement.
Well, whether this is my typical style, I'm not completely sure, but I enjoyed making the card. I hope you'll consider playing the challenge - you won't regret it! And don't forget to check out what the rest of the team has made this week. With all the creativity on the team you're bound to see some beauties. Thanks for visiting my blog today - have a great weekend!
