A Moxie Fab/Color Challenge

I have been crafting up a storm this week but, unfortunately, not a scrapbook page was made. You see, I am in the midst of birthday season. Instead of scrapping, I have been making cards. So, I am interrupting LOAD, again, to share some cards for the next few days.

The colors for today's card was inspired by this color challenge:

And here is my card:
To create this card, I cut my white cardstock down to a standard size card. I cut the brown mat
to measure 5.25"x4", and the kraft piece measures 5"x 3.75". Next, I used white ink to stamp the Dots and Flowers. I cut a piece of coordinating cardstock to measure 1.75" x 3.75". I stamped the Happy Definition in brown so that the print would run vertically. When the ink had dried, I stamped the Stripes Pattern horizontally in VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used a stamp border punch on the green piece before adhering the layers, and adding a sentiment and ribbon.

So that's that for the color challenge. But remember how I said I needed a lot of cards this month. Well, it just so happens that the Moxie Fab World has a challenge to make a card set so, using this design, I did just that. And here it is:


And here's a close-up of each one. First up is Pink Pirouette:
Next is Spring Moss:
And finally, the Baja Breeze card with a peak at how I decorated the envelopes:
Come back tomorrow for a look at how I used the Happy Definition Stamp two other ways for another challenge!
