The Itsy Bitsy Color challenge
ends tomorrow at midnight so there is still a little over 24 hours remaining to create something using our logo colours and submit it for the challenge. We have seen some truly gorgeous creations so far so competition is stiff, but don’t let that stop you from creating your masterpiece. And to inspire you along the way, I have made a TriFold Card in the gorgeous hues of greens, blues and neutrals with a coordinating box envelope.
The picture above shows the card when it’s closed. A trifold card has a number of panels to decorate so there was plenty of space to add the colours. I started with some bottle green card stock and after I scored, cut and folded it into the tri-fold shape, I then began decorating.
For half the panels I embossed some blue punch paper, and then created a lattice design over it using some Itsy Bitsy glitter strips
. For the other set of panels, I used a gorgeous pattern paper from the Fresh Floral Stack
and cut it using a Rotary Cutter
to get that wave edge. Here’s a close up of the details.
For the front side, I used some gorgeous blooms from the Itsy Bitsy Gardenia
series to cover the panel. The leaves protrude from the card so much so that it doesn’t quite look like a standard Tri Fold Card, don’t you think!
Then I made a box envelope for this card. I had seen Kavitha create this really nice box for a card which had a see through panel
, so that you can see the card through the panel. I thought that was a wonderful idea so I decided to give it a go. I used a scallop rectangle die
to cut out a window in the envelope. Then I glued a Transparency/ OHP sheet on the inside and voila – my see-through panel was done! Here’s a look at the envelope when the card is inside.
Isn’t it awesome that you can see that gorgeous bloom. You can barely make out the plastic cover but it’s there, protecting the card from bursting out. As you can see I’ve gone berserk with the new range of adhesive pearls at Itsy Bitsy – they’re so affordable and available in so many colours, I just can’t resist them!
That sums it up for me. If you haven’t yet attempted our color scheme, you still have time to give it a shot! We love to see your creations so head over to your craft corner and get crafting!!!
