I needed a get-well card for a friend from church; at 52 years old, she suffered a massive stroke. Her symptoms and recovery are very similar to Gabrielle Giffords’, so it has been heart-wrenching yet encouraging to see the progress she’s made.
I used the colors from the Neutrals Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World – what a mouthful! Here are the colors:
which in my case are Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Marina Mist. Perhaps Baja Breeze would have been a better choice….I love these colors together, so I may just make another! I also used the Little Red Wagon challenge 64, to make a one-layer card. I love the technique that my friend Nance used on this card, where she inked up an acrylic block and used it as a background, so for my CAS card, that’s what I did:
Using a 4 1/4” square of Very Vanilla textured cardstock, I inked up my blocks in the three colors, then stamped the larger floral image from Vintage Vogue over top. I added the sentiment and narrow ribbon, rounded the opposite corners and my card was done. I REALLY wanted to add some bling and glitter and layers, but I resisted! CAS all the way!
