Hey everyone! These are my projects from my July class by post. I had a request for a colour combo this month, which was Shaded spruce, Granny apple green, and Fresh freesia. Well, you know me. I love blue! So I was a little out of my comfort zone with these colours, but I’m very pleased with how they’ve turned out.
The first card is a slimline card, using a base of Shaded spruce. Cut 8×8″, score at 4″. For my layer of white, cut at 7⅞ x 3 ⅞” this gives a narrow border. If you want a thicker border, cut at 7¾ x 3 ¾”. This was the dimensions of my inner piece( to write on, inside the card). I cut three of the square floral dies from basic white, and then cut a piece of cardstock in each of my colour combo, 1¹⁵/¹⁶” square. This gives a very thin border. If you’d prefer a wider border, you can cut 2×2″ squares. Then arrange either straight, or like I did, offset. I like the effect of the white silhouette. Watch my YouTube tutorial here
My next card was a very simple silhouette effect again, this time using Shaded spruce over Granny apple green. Same dimensions of coloured cardstock. I added a piece of DSP from the in colour pack, in fresh freesia, cut at 1¼”. I stuck mine to my card before trimming the slight overhang. Arrange the die cut squares, gluing the Shaded spruce piece to the granny apple green, then popping up on dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment in shaded spruce, directly onto my card, but you could mount it before adding to your card. Watch my YouTube tutorial here
The next card was a base of granny apple green, then a layer of shaded spruce, cut at 3⅞ x 5½”. The white layer I used the stitched greenery die, which I absolutely love! Cut at 3¾ x 5⅜”. The fresh freesia square is 2¼”². Then I cut the same floral square twice, one shaded spruce and one granny apple green. I cut the light green away from the border, and used the square piece offset underneath the dark. Then I glued the inside piece on top of my Shaded spruce. This meant the leaves were now granny apple green, with the border still Shaded spruce. I then die cut a piece of fresh freesia with the flower die, and glued that on top. I then had a purple flower, hence the layered colours. I stuck some of the open weave ribbon in fresh freesia behind the square, and added a couple of flowers. Watch my YouTube tutorial Here
I also made a few note cards 3×3″ using the same colour combo, and also made a couple of different versions (portrait instead of landscape) of the cards we made.
