The Card Concept 5 - Colour Inspiration

Well I can honestly say I have never used this colour combo before, but it was fun to work out how to combine the colours. My first instinct was to use more white and brown with a touch of lime, but I had this beautiful paper, so this is what I created...

Since I wanted to make this gorgeous foiled paper from Kaisercraft the focal point of the card, I went with the clean and layering style. The sentiment and labels are from Papertrey Ink.

I stamped the label twice, fussy cut one and then layered with foam adhesive for more dimension.
I stitched borders on the square panels for added texture and interest.

  1. The chocolate and green together are absolutely perfect. I have got to make some cards in this style. Your card is perfect, the foil paper is yummo.

    1. Thanks! I should make more of these too - I have so much paper!

  2. I have to go look that stamp set up...I love it! You really got a lot of dimension and I love the foil paper. Very elegant!

  3. First of all, my apologies if this is a duplicate post...blogger ate the first one!
