Our Theme this month is In-Colors 2023-25
Stampin’ Up!® have given us 5 NEW In- Colors to use over the next 2 years. These colours – Wild Wheat, Boho Blue, Moody Mauve, Pebble Path and Cooper Clay. These 5 colours have great earthy tones they work well together and with other colours.
My take on these colours are….
- Boho Blue – I love Blues
- Wild Wheat – a great colour to use if you want Gold accents with out the shinny metallic gold. Wild Wheat also has green under tones which works well for leaves with Autumn tones.
- Moody Mauve – This reminds me of Old Rose colours.
- Pebble Path – This colour to me has a warm gray tones, a nice blend between browns and greys.
- Cooper Clay – Cooper Clay is like the Wild Wheat , could be a replacement for metallic Cooper and again has autumn tones.
For my card I decided to use Boho Blue as my card base and back drop for the floral arrangement. With the Moody Mauve and the Boho Blue the Wild Wheat has a green tone.
The flowers I coloured with Moody Mauve Blends, Wild Wheat for the flower centers. The leaves I use Soft Sea Foam just to give a hint of a different green and not wanting to go too bright.
The ribbon, I unraveled approx 8cm and tied it into a note, rather than a bow. A bow in the coordinating ribbon – Boho Blue Textured Ribbon would have been a little too heavy against the lightness of the stems and floral image.
The sentiment I stamped using the Pebble Path ink, not as dark as the basic black
How to make this card…
Please note that the conversion from Metric/A4 to Imperial/Letter will change the look of the card slightly. There is a difference of roughly 1cm/ ⅜”. This all makes a difference to the layers in the length of the card. You could make the lengths of the DSP shorter but then in doing that the Die Cut stems would be longer than the DSP. So I will leave that to you to decide what you want to do.
