Color Hues #33

 Good afternoon. As we are over halfway through January already, it's time for a new colour combo at Color Hues. This time it was my turn to choose and I went with a wintery combination I hope you'll like. 

Here's my take using the new combination.

I made my card for my Son in Law's Grandparent's Platinum wedding. The platinum theme caused a bit of a mental block to begin with but I went down the silver and white route and they seemed to like the card.
I had a rummage through my silver card drawer, yes sad person that I am, I have one, and pulled out a variety of silver card, including some which when photographed has a shade of pink in it for some reason! Perhaps I had a pink top on when I photographed it, I can't remember! There was also some sparkly and flat white card and even some satin effect black with a hint of sparkle to give a little bit of depth.
After die cutting an oval into an A5 panel of white card, I added some texture paste through a STAMPlorations stencil and left it to dry. Once dry the panel was trimmed to leave a small border when added to my A5 base card. The flowers were die cut using Altenew's Rose Flurries dies and were arranged around the oval to create a pleasing arrangement.
The die cut sentiment is a mix of 2 STAMPlorations die cuts, C from Merry Christmas and elebrate from celebrate, I had to have a capital C and the celebrate is lower case! The 60 was cut using a freebie die and the stamped one is an ancient Uniko one long since retired.

So where will our colours take you? We'd love to see your take in the gallery but if you need more inspiration, check out the rest of the DT and our GD here.

  5. I like what Sarah shame you are just that organized. :) I can't imagine making it to 60 years of marriage. It is unlikely hubby and I will see that number. I know this gorgeous card will be loved by the recipients! Great color combo for this time of year too! Have a great day!

  6. This is beautiful, and I'm sure they were thrilled with the card! I love the texture you got with the embossing paste. At first it appeared to be a 3D embossing folder. Your card is just the inspiration I need to pull my embossing pastes out for a run!
