My Pink Stamper Color Challenge


Robyn, over at My Pink Stamper, is having a color challenge: create something using pink, green, brown, and orange. I decided to make a shaped card using the cute tree with a swing from the Just Because Cards cartridge. This was made on my Gyspy and cut it at 9.66" to fit in an A2 envelope. I used the shadow feature of the tree, and then copied, flipped, and welded it to make the card. I then cut the shadow again (the same size) and ran it through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder for the base layer. The brown layer of the tree was also run through the Cuttlebug, using the Papertrey Ink Woodgrain impression plate.

This is a little retirement card for a friend; the sentiment is on the inside.

Recipe:
(All materials Papertrey Ink)

Cardstock: Orange Zest, Dark Chocolate, and Raspberry Fizz
Patterned Paper: 2009 Bitty Dot Basics
Chai Ink
Rustic Jute Button Twine
