Slimline Floral

Just Us Girls #633 – Color Week

I don’t do many slimline cards, but the colour challenge at JUG’s this week seemed to lend itself to one. I got as close as I could to the colours although on the photo my tan piece looks a bit brown. In real life it is a real tan colour. To me the photo at JUG’s seems to have more of a sand or beige tone rather than tan but the computers never show true colours in my opinion. The coral was another challenge as I don’t have any CS that is in coral and when checking some swatches the closest I could get was this marbled PP that has a pinkish tone along with the darker coral. Inspiration for the design is from a card by Jean Okimoto see Here. The dies used are from Memory box and the bling is from Trinity Stamps. The sentiment is from Joy Clair and was stamped in Blueprint Sketch. Although this may not be exactly what the challenge is looking for, I am happy with how the card turned out and I’m sure any recipient will be pleased too. Have a great day everyone.

  1. You did a good job. It is hard to match the colors exactly sometimes. When using SU paper, they print the colors on the packaging that comes with it. Mary Fish is a demonstrator you can easily find and she shares the colors in the DSP packs. I like your card!

  2. Your card is a great way to meet the color challenge. I love the marbled patterned paper nestled between the solids. Your dies are positioned and just the right size for your slimline card.

  3. I think your card is fabulous, Johanna. We’re not that much of a stickler when it comes to matching colors. And you’re right. They don’t always show up true on screen anyway. I love the three strips in each color and your flower arrangment lays on them perfectly. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

    1. Thanks Bobby. I enjoy playing but often struggle to match colours. Glad you think this one works.


  4. I am loving your take on our colour challenge. Your floral spray is so pretty and that marbled dp finishes it off beautifully. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely card with us at JUGS this week.
