Die Cuttin' Divas Color Challenge, #97


Welcome back for another Die Cuttin' Divas challenge. 

This week we have a color challenge for you...use ivory, gold, and blue.   Look at these pretty colors!

Here's what I made for the challenge.

The card size is 5x7 in ivory cardstock (even though it may look white in the photo, it really is off-white).  I used gold metallic paper and cut that at 4.75 x 6.75.  On top of that, I cut light blue cardstock at 4.5 x 6.5, and embossed it with my Cuttlebug Snowflake folder.  Then, I sponged the raised snowflakes lightly with off-white ink.  That seemed to make the embossing a little more pronounced.

The snowflake is cut from Tie the Knot cartridge at 3-3/4".  (Who would have thought you could find a snowflake on a wedding cartridge?  I really like it, though, probably because it has a shadow.)   I cut the snowflake using light blue glitter cardstock from The Christmas Winter Combo matstack (DCWV), and the shadow is cut twice in ivory cardstock so I could pop it up with foam squares. I just love that effect!  Added some blue gems, blue pearls, gold pearls, and some blue stickles for even more glitter around the edges.

The wording "Winter Wishes" is cut from Jolly Holidays at 1-1/2".  I wrapped some light blue organza ribbon around the blue mat with gold ribbon and a bow on top of that!

We hope you'll join the Die Cuttin' Divas COLOR challenge this week.  To enter the challenge, make a card, layout, home decor, or altered project using the colors shown above.  As with all our challenges, your project also needs to include a die-cut.  Be sure to tell us which die cut(s) you used and link your post back to Die Cuttin' Divas.  You can enter up to 3 projects!  

Our sponsor is Scrappy Moms, and they are providing a stamp set of the winner's choice.

We look forward to seeing what you create!  Thanks for visiting.
