Wow, it's amazing how quickly the week flies by. Today's Friday Mashup challenge is brought to us by Avery.
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
- Create a project using the Colors " Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder & Wild Wasabi".
- Create a " Shaped card".
- Or Mash it up and create a "Shaped Card using the above Colors".
So I have to laugh, because as I began working on this challenge, I was so focused on making my card a different shape, that I completely forgot to look at the color scheme. Luckily I did pull out the Pool Party color, if by Pool Party you mean Coastal Cabana!! Anyway, this card came together quite nicely in my opinion.
As I began the card making process, I knew I needed a card for my sister-in-law who is having her first baby girl. Now don't get me wrong, I love pink, but sometimes I think there are so many fun and different color combos you can do for girls. This color combo of Coastal Cabana and Real Red is one of my favorites right now.
So to make this card into a "shape", I took the cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) folded it in half and positioned it on the diecut so that the fold of the card was just below the cutting line of the shape. This way, when I ran it through the bigshot, it only cut the actual shape out on three sides. Next, I stamped the shoes in Black
Staz On, colored them with Real Red and Pool Party ( I couldn't find my Coastal Cabana marker) and then used the tiniest size of pearls for the buttons on the shoes.
I think my sister-in-law will really like this card. Now it's your turn to head over to The Friday Mashup and take the opportunity to get ''in shape" again!!
