A Nice Cuppa

AprilCardClass4Happy Thursday everyone!  It’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and boy do we have a FUN color challenge for you!  I had made this card for my April card class and loved the colors so much, we used them for the color challenge.  My husband and I have been watching a lot of DIY home improvements and these color remind me of all the remodeled homes!  LOL!!!  Aren’t these GREAT colors…Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Kraft (or Crumb Cake)?

Here’s the details…

  • Smoky Slate – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Smokey Slate – 3 3/4 x 5, run through Elegant Dots Embossing  Folder, wrap around a piece of the Smoky Chevron Ribbon, add panel to card using dimensionals
  • Kraft Corrugated paper – 2 x4.  Add piece of the Love Blossoms dsp (1 x 2) to bottom, punch top using the Scallop Tag Topper and round bottom corners
  • Basic Grey – 1/8 x 2, add to tag
  • Crumb Cake slash print – two pieces 1/2 x 1 3/4, cut on diagonal, add to slot at top, add tag to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out teapot, add to tag
  • Basic Grey – cut out spoon, add to tab
  • Basic Grey – cut out steam ‘heart’, add to card front
  • Kraft – punch out 1 1/4 Scallop Circle, add to tea pot
  • Smoky Slate – stamp greeting using Basic Grey, punch with 1″ Circle Punch, add to card front.

How cool is that!

  1. Oh my, Mary!!!! I absolutely LOVE this card! I love the crisp, white tea pot with the dark gray spoon and heart steam. And the kraft backdrop is absolutely perfect!!! Let’s not forget that cool chevron ribbon….perfection!

  2. Very pretty – love the pattern and texture added by the ribbon, DSP and corrugated cardstock. Grey is very on-trend for home decor so I can see how you were inspired; great job!
