Swirly Fun

Color Hues #13- Yellow and Blue

Having seen a few of this design recently, I really wanted to try for myself and this is my version. It seemed to me that the challenge colours at Color Hues were perfect for doing a card of this type. I chose a few different blue CS scraps and the same for the yellow and using my Hero Arts Infinity circle dies I cut the various sizes. The nice thing about this design is that you get 2 cards from one design so it is worth the work. After playing around with the placement of each colour circle I had one set of yellow hues and one of the blue. I then glued each set together and once dry cut the result in half ending up with 4 half circles. I already had the Navy card front ready and after dry embossing some white CS with a Darice Swirly vine folder I cut it slightly smaller and glued onto the card front. Then I took 2 halves of each colour set and played with placement on top. Before I glued them into place I cut another small strip of the navy CS and heat embossed the sentiment in white. I also flagged the ends and taking a thin strip of foam tape I added it to the back in the center. I stuck this into place just between the 2 halves and then I glued each half underneath butting up the edges to the thin piece of foam. I did the other half of the sentiment on a piece of white CS this time heat embossing in black and added it as you see in the photo. The sentiment is from a GKD set called Grand Greetings. I am really happy with how this turned out and it wasn’t hard to do, but did require a bit of thought to get right. There is a lot going on so I chose to keep it as is rather than add any bling. It’s a good design for a masculine card.

    1. When I saw this type of design initially I just had to try to make one. I did watch a couple of different ways to do it before attempting it though.


  1. I think you nailed it with this one! Such gorgeous hues and the geometric design is perfect for displaying them.We are so glad you could play along at Color Hues! I really like the texture added to the white panel too.

  2. I haven’t seen this design before, and didn’t have any idea how you created it until I read your great directions! It was definitely worth your time and effort. The blues and yellows look great here! Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!

    1. Thank you. Like you I had no idea how it was done when I first saw it. Fortunately crafters are generous in sharing and I found a couple of places where it was explained.


  3. Glad you like it – thanks. I’ll try to remember to send you a link to a tutorial so you can see as well as read how to make one.
