One of my husbands fraternity brothers from college has been under the weather so my husband asked me to create a card using their college colors-well sounds easy but the colors are blue and orange! I thought what can you do with Blue and Orange? Auburn University colors! Dapper Denim and Tangerine Tango almost match their colors displayed on their website so I decided to use them-but then-how to create a masculine ‘thinking of you card’?
Actually when I was finished I was rather pleased with it. I cased this design from Diane Squires www.stampandembellish.com . My base card is Dapper Denim Card Stock with a layer of Tangerine Tango next and topped with a layer of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The leaf was die cut in the upper top of the card layer using the Leaflets Framelits Oak Leaf die. The layer in between is Tangerine Tango pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.
My husband choose the sentiment and it was stamped in Dapper Denim using the stamp from Tin of Cards Stamp Set. The ribbon is Dapper Denim in the 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon and adhered using SNAIL with a small snippet tied in a one knot on the left side. The little embellishment on the upper left side are Dapper Denim Enamel dots from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes Collection.
My husband choose not to have anything adorning the inside. He wanted lots of room to write his own note. The layers are the Dapper Denim Card Base with Tangerine Tango next and top layer is Very Vanilla Card Stock. All adhered using SNAIL adhesive.
