This card made Top Three at Stamptacular Sunday!
Whew. I just finished up what was probably one of the most difficult cards I've made thus far. It was for a couple of challenges, but also made for a future swap partner, so I wanted everything to be perfect. Recently I've seen some pretty amazing tri-shutter cards, so I was inspired to create one for myself. That wasn't what made this card so difficult. It was the color scheme I was working with. For Stamping Scrapping, the challenge was yellow and black and for the new Magnolia-licious challenge blog, the color scheme was yellow and pink. I'm not that big of a yellow fan and I normally don't think of yellow and pink as going together, but I must say, i like the end result. The base of my card is black and then I alternated mounting pink Sweet Nothings by SEI on yellow and yellow on pink throughout the card design. I used Romantic Tilda which can be purchased at Stamping Scrapping here and Sparkling Tilda which can be purchased at 7Kids College Fund here. I colored both images with my Copics and then cut Sparkling Tilda out by hand and used my curved rectangles spellbinders to cut out Romantic Tilda. I then used the same sized die to cut out a pink rectangle and a yellow rectangle to mount my image on. The flowers are by Kaisercraft (Pink Petaloo) and I glimmer misted them with Pearl Glimmer Mist to add some sparkle. I also used Diamond Stickles on Sparkling Tilda's wings and halo. The sentiment is from a Fiskars sentiment pack and the pink pearls are by Queen & Co. Here's the front of the card.
