I love the challenge colors in the Paper Players Challenge #15 and the new challenge Embossing Sundays #1. Even though my card doesn't evoke the fall season with leaves and such, the colors are still great to work with.
I started with Cajun Craze as my base card. With the Perfect Details Texturz Plate I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla. Before I adhered it to the card, I added my bow. I used the bow maker from Lee Conrey. Check out her website; she does such lovely work. After attaching the bow to the Very Vanilla, I added it to my card base. Using scrap pieces of Old Olive, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso, I embossed them with the small dots from the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate, cut them down to 1-1/2" squares with the Paper Cutter and rounded the corners with the 3/16" Corner Small Punch. I stamped the images from the hostess set Cute by the Inch on scrap pieces of Very Vanilla and added Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and More Mustard brads from the Brights and Regals brads. I stamped the thank U image using VersaMark and Cajun Craze and heat embossed it with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. I wanted to keep the images small, so instead of punching them out (wish we had a 1" punch), I cut them with my Paper Snips. I added them to the embossed squares of card stock and attached them to the Very Vanilla. I enjoyed this color combo and will probably use it again. Thanks for stopping by.
