Colour Combo March Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo March Blog Hop as we explore creating projects with Bermuda Bay, Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you and spark your creativity. 
I love how these three colors work together and I wanted to showcase them in a bold yet simple design. For this card, I decided to use the Brilliant Wings Dies and I paired it with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to the background. The Black card base provides a bold frame for the Basic White background which helps make the butterflies pop. It's not often that I create a card that has no stamping, but I am really happy with how this no-stamping card design turned out.

This clean and simple card design is a great way to showcase these beautiful colors using the detailed butterflies from the Brilliant Wings Dies. I cut one of each color using the same size die to create the focal design for my card. For the background, I embossed the Basic White cardstock layer with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I love the texture that this adds to the card design. I adhered the Basic White cardstock layer to the Basic Black card base and then positioned the butterfly die cuts so that they are equally spaced down the center of the card front, starting with Bermuda Bay, then Balmy Blue and finally Soft Sea Foam. I attached them by cutting a Mini Stampin' Dimensional in half to attach to the back of the body of the butterfly and then attached them to the card front. To finish off the card design, I added Basic Rhinestone Jewels in three different sizes, going from largest to smallest from the head down towards the tail. I decided to not add a sentiment to my card design because I liked the symmetry of this design. This makes it a great all occasion card design that would work well for both men and women of all ages.
