March is here and I am already enjoying seeing all the beautiful Spring designs papercrafters are making. We at ODBD are also gearing up for Spring with a stunning new release (here) and of course the challenge team has prepared some inspiring Spring themed challenges for you! This week our challenge at ODBD is Pastel Colors. If you visit the blog often you know how much I love to use pastel colors on my cards, so I couldn’t wait to start making my card for today! I can’t wait to see what you create with this lovely color combo too!
I created a background using the Beautiful Borders die set, die cutting different pastel colors and adhering them vertically. I like how delicate these borders look and how much texture they add to the card. I adhered a piece of pink ribbon accross the center to unify the colorful design. The color of ribbon that you add to the center becomes the predominant color and of course I wanted this soft pink to stand out the most and to tie the color combo together.
I stamped and heat embossed in silver a sentiment from an older stamp set called Faith (which is one of my favorites) on white cardstock, that I then cut with a label die from Vintage Flourish Pattern. To add a Spring touch to the design I also heat embossed some butterflies from the same set on vellum, fussy cut them and add some around the label that I previously stenciled with coordinating pink ink.
