Monday Madness . . . Imagine That!

Hello all! Happy Monday and welcome to another Imagine That! This week, we’re doing things a little different and we’re making it a color challenge.

color Challenge

Imagine Color Challenge: Black, White, Gray & Pink.

Using the colors above I made this card with some printed patterns from my Imagine the the Teresa Collins Black & White pattern cartridge.



As usual, my card is  standard A2. I used True Black cardstock for my base. I cut a white mat from my Georgia Pacific cardstock and sewed the gray and black scroll patterned mat to it with some black there. I adhered that to my card base.

I printed the polka dot pattern on some gray cardstock and I decided it use it to break up the intricate backdrop. But I wanted to do it with a little pattern and one that made sense. Also, I wanted a small accent of pink, so I punch a scallop border with my Scallop Sentiment punch and adhered it to the polka dot strip. By the way, it measures 4.25” x 1.5”. I then adhered that directly to the card, doing my best the center it.

I cut the stock top not from the Imagine in True Black and again with a floral patterned on some pink cardstock. I use dimensional adhesive to adhered them together and set them aside. I use some satin and sheer Offray ribbon to tie a bow on the card. I simply cut a slit on the side to feed the ribbon through. I used VersaMark Dazzle to stamp my sentiment and embossed it with black Zing embossing powder. My sentiment hails from the latest MCT release You Are Perk-fect. I wanted to show that sentiments are versatile.

To bring it all together, I adhered the top notes to the card with more dimensional adhesive, and I used some liquid adhesive to adhere my sentiment on top. I printed some butterflies from Storybook with the Black and White patterns and I decided to include them as well. Some pink rhinestones, Prima flourishes, and silver Shimmer Spritz finished it off!

Thanks so much for coming by. Have a blessed day!!
