Color Dare #368

Happy Friday I’m back with another Design Team card for  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is to choose any colors inspired by the Horn of Plenty.

I had so much fun picking the fall colors for this card…I settled for cardstock in Peacock and Ruby, some papers from the mix-in paper packet and an assortment of stamp sets.

The z-fold card is attached to a flat fold and when it extends you find a gift card pocket. It was quite easy to put together and still packed a little surprise. My hubby thought the coffee rings looked like they were from a shot glass – shhh, don’t tell him the Craft-Coop is where I keep my stash.

You can visit the Color My Heart Color Dare blog for all the information on how to play along as well as finding additional inspiration from the other Design Team members.

Nifty 60 Gift Card Holder

We have a special family birthday to celebrate this week and I wanted to put together a special card.  I’m also trying to use my stash of B&T papers that I’ve accumulated!

I started by cutting components from the Artfully Sent cartridge for the Over the Hill Banner and “60”.  I then cut the gift card holder from Kraft Cardstock from the Artiste cartridge (I love the gift card holder cards).  I mounted it to a standard 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 card base and tied it all closed with a piece of Juniper ribbon.

For the inside I stamped the Happy Day stamp in Juniper and mounted it with Thin 3D Foam Tape to a piece of Glitter Gold and Black Circle cut just 1/4 inch bigger than the circle below it.

I love it when things come together this easy.  I hope you’ll find some inspiration to use up some of your stash!

Thanks for stopping by!
