Laced Edge Birthday Card

Hi there !

I love the color combination at this week's Color Throwdown. A little unexpected for a floral card... but just look how beautiful it is in the inspiration picture below !

Wish I was there... 😍... looks like holiday to me!

Some colors behave strangely on photos... and kraft is one of those ! My kraft looks a bit brownish, but since the color police won't come after me, I decided to share it anyway!

I used :

  • Cutting file from the Silhouette store : Design ID #299589 (modified)
  • Strips of colored card stock to make striped background
  • Sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Beautiful flowers set
  • Altenew ink in Mocha
  • Silhouette cameo

The card front was cut three times and layered for dimension. No embellishments for this CAS card!


Challenges :

Color throwdown ~ Aqua , Hot pink, Kraft & white

Seize the birthday ~ No toppings this time

Thanks for looking!

You are once again rocking a CAS design and this looks fabulous with the striped throwdown colors! Love it! Thanks for joining us at CTD this last week!

Those stripes of fresh color are a great backdrop to your pretty cut design. I think I need to give this technique (of using strips of colored cardstock to create a background) a try.
