CCMC 288

Good morning, Friends! It's Thursday again and time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge! This week we are being challenged with colors. Take a look at these most fabulous colors!! 

Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar are the totally awesome colors that we are to work with! I love these colors together!! So retro and fun! Here's what I created...

My card is pretty simple and I tried to keep the retro feel in the design. Here are the details…

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Adhere a strip of Tangerine Tango that was run through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots embossing folder
  • Round the top of a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock with the 2 1/2" circle punch and flag the bottom
  • Stamp the chevron/arrow stamp image from Petal Parade in Coastal Cabana onto the Coastal Cabana tag
  • Punch a circle from Tangerine Tango using the 1/2" circle punch and adhere to tag
  • Punch a hole for the glimmer brad then adhere tag to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting from Four You in Baked Brown Sugar onto a strip of Whisper White and flag one end then adhere to card
