Day 4, Week 3 over at the Summer Card Camp class. That means just one more day :( Man oh man has this class been incredible! If you are a beginner or a seasoned card maker, there is seriously something for everyone. I learned so much during the last few weeks and each day came with so much inspiration and so many ah-ha moments! It certainly got me to stretch myself from my regular style and I attempted some cards that I would have never otherwise made.
Today was challenge day! And the challenge was to go outside the box - make a card in a style outside your comfort zone. I felt okay with this challenge, since that is what I have been trying to do for the most of the class. The colour palette alone this week is outside of my comfort zone! I decided to use Sketch #2 as well, but took a few artistic liberties! Since this is the first card I have made for class this week (dog ate my homework??!), I tried to use as many of the techniques and inspiration from the entire week that I could.
Here's the card:
I made this for my Mom's birthday coming up this week. It does say Happy Birthday inside the card! The purple did throw me for a bit of a loop at first, but I found a way to incorporate it in without being too over the top. The Mom in light purple was stamped from a Lawn Fawn set, and the second, overlaid turquoise Mom was another one of my DYI's. The I Love You is from one of my favourite sentiment sets from Avery Elle. I have no idea who makes the patterned paper, but it is so pretty. I got it in a class I took recently at a local store, and it was pre-cut. It was actually a copic colouring class, and card assembly was optional. I decided just to bring the pre-cut pieces home and use them on something else - and I thought it worked well with this card.
That's it for me today. Hope you're having an awesome day!!
