CCMC 284

Good morning, Friends! Create with Connie and Mary have a fabulous color challenge for us today! Take a look!

And my card...

I don't know if you can tell or not but I used the wrong color again - UGH! I used Melon Mambo instead of Strawberry Slush. And I was so excited to use Strawberry Slush! Oh well. You can hardly tell the difference so that makes it a little better. It's my birthday month so I thought I would create a birthday card with these colors. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Melon Mambo (should be Strawberry Slush)
  • Use the scallop trim border punch to punch the top of a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock and a 1" circle punch to round the bottom corners of the card base and the Bermuda Bay layer then tie a piece of Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon around it
  • Adhere panel to card
  • Use the 2 3/8" scallop punch to punch a scallop circle from Basic Black
  • Stamp cupcake bottom from Create a Cupcake in black StazOn onto Whisper White and punch out with the 1 3/4" circle punch then adhere to scallop circle
  • Use the white chalk marker to add dots to each scallop
  • Stamp cupcake top in Melon Mambo (should be Strawberry Slush) onto Whisper White and punch out with the cupcake builder punch and adhere with dimensionals
  • Adhere scallop circle to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting in black StazOn onto a strip of Whisper White and adhere to card
  • Punch a flower from Bermuda Bay using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and adhere to cupcake
  • Add a rhinestone to flower center

  1. Wrong color or not, it is still a lovely card. Love the panel with the border at the top and the round corners.

  2. I haven't used my Cupcake Punch in forever. I like how you added the banner to it like that!

  3. If you hadn't said it was the wrong color...I would not have known! Love cupcakes! Great card!

  4. I would have never known it was the wrong color! You did a great job with the challenge, crisp and clean layout, perfect with the cupcake.

  5. Very I said, no one would know it wasn't Strawberry Slush. Love the cupcake, a sadly ignored set at my house lately! Great job with the color challenge.
