Today I tried to create a card for the SCS Color Challenge 209 - Basic Black, Always Artichoke, Rose Red. I love these colors and I really don't love my card - hate that when that happens.
The card base is a 6x6 piece of Always Artichoke card stock, folded in half to create a 3x6 card, just the right size for our Small Open Ended Envelopes. I added a strip of Rose Red cardstock that I ran through the Crimper and adhered with Tombow Mono Multi. I embossed the rock star image from A Little Somethin', A Level II Hostess set, in Rose Red Craft ink with Clear Embossing Powder and my Heat Gun onto Whisper White card stock. Then I punched it out with the Large Star Punch. I layered the star onto a 1 3/4" Circle Punch of Basic Black cardstock with Stampin' Dimensionals and used a Paper Piercer to create a border on this circle. I folded the corner of the card base over and adhered it with a star brad from Stylized Silver Hodge Podge Hardware. The background star images are from the Wanted set, stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink and Rose Red Craft Ink.
I lined the inside of the card with a piece of Always Artichoke pattern paper from a long retired pack of DSP and stamped the upper right corner with the swirl image from Baroque Motif in Basic Black Craft Ink.
