CCC13 Creative Challenge Monday

The photo of this card really doesn’t do it justice.  I couldn’t get my lighting just right so I feel like you don’t see the richness in this card that it is in person.  So sorry.  

Here is what the challenge looks like.  Please go over to Creative Challenge Club and play along with us. Last week we were able to giveaway a $15 shopping spree! YAY!  We would love to do that again.  

Here is the video on how to put my version of the card together.

Tips & Tricks

  • Heat Embossing: Best tip about heat embossing is to use your embossing buddy.  It’s a little duster thing you use before you stamp and put your powder on.  I ALWAYS FORGET THIS STEP, and I regret it later.  It keeps your embossing powder from sticking all over your paper.
  • The rule of odd #’s:  In any design having odd numbers is good.  Thus the 3 circles instead of say 4 circles.  It’s good to have odd numbers, not just in card making, but in home decor and/or party decor.
  • Pops of color:  This card is basically monochromatic except for the obvious Melon Mambo pop of color.  This brings the card to life.  Using a bring color against neutral muted colors is generally a good thing.
