OCC Challenge - Cool Colors

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Hi there!  I'm here with another challenge from Our Creative Corner.  This week the challenge is to make a card using the cool colors, blue and green.  I've been seeing a ton of cards lately that have a "frame" created with a marker and ruler.  I've done this before, but I always forget about that technique.  It adds a sort of polished look to the card.  I didn't plan for the card to be masculine, it just turned out that way.  That's okay because I can always use masculine cards.

I hope you have time to play along with us this week.  I know our schedule is bursting at the seams, but it's always nice to squeeze in a little "me-time" in the studio.  Head on over to Our Creative Corner and check out the amazing cards from the rest of the Design Team.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

This is really cute! I love your stars with the brads and the great frame you made. You are right - that is an easy technique that is easy to forget about, but it makes such an impact!

Terrific card, Dana! Great technique and wonderfully executed! I'd be afraid my corners wouldn't mesh but yours are perfect.
