Over on Cupcake Inspirations, they showcased three colors to use as a source of inspiration. They were giving major honeycomb vibes with this set of colors:
For some reason, the yellow, brown and black really felt masculine to me. Like many cardmakers, I struggled with masculine cards, but recently I acquired Anna Griffin's Calligraphic Sentiment dies. I thought these dies, would really help make the colors pop. Slimline was on the dock for today, and so here is what I made:
Everything about this made me happy. I background emboss folder really help give it that masculine edge. To give it just a little more texture, I also added four black dots at each corner. Super thrilled with the results.
My less successful attempt followed:
While it still looked good, I was less thrilled with how flimsy the paper felt after going through with the emboss paper. If I decide to go with this flower paisley folder again, I'm going to need to back it up with even more 3D dot adhesives.
Definitely thrilled with these colors, and will definitely be returning to this combination again.
