ColourQ91 & Mojo197

CQC91 banner

Hey!  It’s Tuesday and that means ColourQ time!  Here’s Arielle’s sweet little inspiration for this week:

cqc91 I love it!  Nothing says summer like red, white & blue plaid!  I took a tiny liberty to use different shades of the challenge colors, but I think they’re close enough:


I used the circular sketch from Mojo Monday 197:


to make this birthday card for my cousin, whose birthday just happens to be on July 4!  Here’s the inside:


Instead of making my scallop card on the fold, I layered two scallops with a 2 7/8 x 2 1/2” card on the inside.  So that the card could be opened, I scored the top of the back scallop, which allows it to fold back when opening the card. 

I hope you can find some inspiration from these colors and create something for the ColourQ this week!  Check out the CQC blog for all the other designers’ creations as well!  Thanks for visiting today!



Good thing it was a retired catalog!

Like the way you put the scallop circles on the outside of a regular card…and the colors are great.

Speaking of colors – little Cassidy is so colorful today – love the bow in her hair – and that expression! That’s exactly how we look when we see a new SU catalog - gigl

Great card, and I completely know the holiday/birthday scenario. The occasions are wonderfully combined.

Peachy Wessels said...

I love your card - so cute and festive! Like you, I love the red/white/blue combo - it makes really striking cards! Also, that little girl is just adorable and oh, so precious. I love seeing her cute little pics!

Patti said...

Love this card. So many little details. Wonderful birthday card for someone born on the U.S.'s birthday. So wise of you to teach Cassidy at an early age about SU.
