Happy Friday!! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we were tasked with creating our Fabulous Friday projects featuring the colors from our favorite college. I graduated from the University of Virginia (Wahoowa!!) and just love the color combination of blue and orange!!
I chose the new In Color dapper denim along with pumpkin pie for my card today. I have used this simple card layout time and time again and always love how much it features the pattern in the DSP! For the second week in a row I used the Festive Birthday DSP - so bright and cheery and this pairs perfectly with dapper denim! The stamp set I used is Homemade for You along with a variety of punches: Blossom Bunch, Duet Banner, Medallion and Sweetheart. And you know how much I love my Big Shot and adding texture to a card - this one features the Woodgrain textured impressions folder.
Remember how I embellished the inside of my card last week with strips of DSP? (If you missed it, find that post here) I decided to try that again, but used only one strip on the bottom of the card instead of the sides. I even added a little flower punch... unexpected and fun, right? I love this great new Stylized Birthday single stamp, too!
Here's one more view of the card. For even more College Colors inspired projects please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
