DCBD Challenge #124

By Lisa Freeman | April 22, 2009







This week’s challenge is a color one….we had to use white, vanilla, gray and black to make our card. The only problem I had was using the vanilla. I really like my card with just the white, gray and black but I did use the vanilla on the sentiment piece. I do think it would have looked better on the white though. I just love the new Manhattan flower embossing folder…..evidently everyone else does too since it is on backorder now. I sure hope Stampin Up comes up with  more of these embossing folders. I also used the Walk in the Park paper and the new oval scallop punch, Oval All set and the organza ribbon. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think . Also, don’t forget to check out the rest of the diva’s cards at http://divacoffeebreakdesigns.blogspot.com/

    Ooooo, that’s GOR-geous on the vellum — also my favorite embossing folder (well our only embossing folder so far LOL) but it would still be my favorite ;o) Great job!

    Oh man, I’m totally stealing this idea for my card class tomorrow night (my brain is fried and I need ideas… and this is the best take on that idea). My only problem is that my folder actually breaks through the vellum… not sure how to avoid that.

    I have so much of that color DSP, I bought the bulk, plus the regular Walk in the Park DSP. Now I can see what it looks like to make use of it. I haven’t tried the Vellum yet, hope there’s no problem with the vellum breaking. Any suggestions?
    Thanks I love everything about your card. Grey’s white and black are the popular colors. All of a sudden I’m selling Grey Card Stock and pads. It’s a good thing..

    I love what you did with the folder. I think all your customers will be ordering it. I did notice that Chris’ name was not on the challenge site.

    Your card is beautiful! Of course I looked at it AFTER I made my card and we both just about made the same card. Too funny. You can see my card here.

    I really do like this with the vellum. And I love the new scalloped oval punch. Can’t wait to use mine.
