Tin of Cards Congrats Card for GDP029

posted in: Cards, Congratulations | 8

Over at the Global Design Project this week there’s a colour challenge, and at first glance I thought “Ok, that looks pretty easy”, but let me tell ya, it was quite a challenge!

A few days later, as often happens with me, I’ll be eating dinner, brushing my teeth, or doing something totally unrelated to crafting, and an idea will zap into my mind with no warning – yep, you know what I mean.  Anyway, I had this idea to use the three colours and weave them using strips.  But then, as also often happens, I modify my idea.  Once I laid the colours down in front of me, they took me back to the groovy sixties – you know, psychedelic pop, Austen Powers, flower power and groovy people!  YAS!  I knew what to do with them!  I cut them all into wedges of varying sizes, glued them to a piece of scrap cardstock and voila!  Instant grooviness!  I love how inspiration comes to us, don’t you?  Can’t you just see those http://www.mindanews.com/buy-amoxil/ brown and orange kitchens of the early 70s Australian kitchens?!  YUK!  Anyway, here’s my card:


And here’s the annotated view with all the products used:


Here’s a closer view of the embossed sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set.  I though the font was groovy enough to fit the theme of the card.


What do you think?  Groovy huh?  This wasn’t a hard or time consuming card to make.  If you like it, why not give it a go?  I’d love to see your take on it.  Feel free to share yours on my Facebook page – GaGa Papercrafts.

And here’s a snapshot of the colours I’ve used today – feel free to save this to your computer:

    Is there a better way to use these colors? I think not. Great card, Gail! Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s GDP color challenge!

    Looks great! At first I thought you used the sunburst die – but this must have taken a bit more time to cut out each piece. Well, the finished card is worth the time!

      Thanks Julie. Yes, I thought about using the die, but I wanted it to look a bit more random. It only took a couple of minutes to cut some triangles on the Stampin’ Trimmer. No measuring, until the last one! xoxo
