Let's Get Together - CTD91
Let's Get Together - Color Throw Down #91 tempting torquoise, rose red, kiwi kiss.
This card was created for the Color Throw Down. My base is an 8.5 x 5.5 inch piece of torquoise. I scored and folded the base piece at 2.25, and 4.5 inches. Then I cut my double sided designer paper at 2 inches wide each. Double sided dp is the two patterns that you see here. I stamped my Stampabilities hummingbird with rose red and heat embossed it. Then I stamped my impressrubberstamps.com hibiscus flower with Brilliance pearlescent lime and Stampin' Up! rose red. Then I heat embossed them both. To thread my ribbon through I cut small slits; one in the fold of my card and then another on the dp piece I stamped the sentiment and hummingbird on. I left the piece on the front loose to flap. But since this card is seen straight on, you could probably use double sided tape and tape it down. Then the card could stay as is or you could matte it onto a piece of card stock so that it could open and you could put additional sentiment inside. I haven't decided if I will add the cardstock or leave as is.
