Hello Friend

Color Hues #49 Yellow and Brown

When making the earlier card for this challenge, another idea popped into my head so I decided to do a 2nd card. This one uses a sentiment stamp from GKD and a leafy swirl stamp from CTMH which is very old and likely discontinued. Taking a small white panel I stamped the leaf along the edge in Gathered Twigs and the sentiment lower down and to the left using Ground Expresso. Then I die cut the flowers in 2 different yellows and added them together. Die is from Memory Box and is called Layered Impatiens. I only used the smaller layers for this card but I now have some larger flowers ready for a future card because of the way this die cuts. Once I had them placed the way I wanted I glued them down and added a few single flowers using the smallest section of the die. To finish the panel I added some Trinity Stamps embellishments in gold. I took the same bright yellow paper and cut a panel to be offset behind the main layer and added it to the brown card front then I added the image layer at a slightly different angle. Its a simple card but quite effective and I’m pleased with it and I have a few friends who will appreciate a little note like this. Have a great day everyone.

  1. Definitely love this card. The layering and leafy swirl with the dimensional flowers looks great. Another great card for someone who doesn’t care for brown. LOL.

  2. Joanna, It looks like we may have swayed you to like brown at least a little bit. LOL. So happy to see you back with this gorgeous floral. Thanks for joining us again at Color Hues.

  3. Your card brought a little bit of sunshine into a grey day here. Those die cut flowers work well with the stamped swirls and contrast with the bold sentiment. TFS @Color Hues. 🙂


  4. Johanna your second card for the challenge is such a lovely card to send to a friend. I think the flowers up the side are a perfect accent! Thank you once again for sharing with us at the Color Hues!
