Concept Card Challenge #1

Grab our Badge for your Blog!An exciting and brand new card challenge for this new year!  You can click on the photo to take you to this challenge.  We have until Monday January 20th!

This is my try with these pretty colours.  They remind me of Neapolitain ice cream!
I am aiming for the "clean and layered" style.  Take a look at the designer team cards...they are awesome and so inspiring!
So here is how I went about creating my card...
I started with a woodgrain background in kraft colour and then added this SU older sentiment in dark brown.  I added some pink glitter to the bottom dots and dotted the top flower centers with a Copic marker.  Espresso and pink twine tied up in simple knots.  My focal image is my Memory Box birdie cut from soft pink velum and I added a Crate paper wing.  The frame is a Maya Road chipboard that I covered in the same paper.  I cut 3  hearts using PTI dies,  1 in velum and two in felt for different textures.

Thanks for taking a peek!  Hope that you have time to play along with this challenge.



  1. gorgeous, fabulous glad you played along with us at Card Concept!

  2. What a pretty card! Like how you used vellum, felt and patterned paper to get different textures! I really need to use vellum more often because I really like it.
    Btw, I live two hours away from your home town, Montreal! It's such a great city!

  3. Such a great challenge that any style can enter ... great card Chriss!

  4. What a pretty card!! I love the way you have layered the bird and the heart! Beautiful work!! Thanks so much for playing along with us for the first Card Concept challenge! :)

  5. Yep - you've nailed clean and layered! This is such a beautiful card! Thanks for joining us at The Card Concept!

  6. Super sweet card. I love this sentiment. So glad you were able to join us this week at The Card Concept.

  7. Your 'try' with these fabulous colors is exactly that...fabulous! I found this color combo a bit of a challenge, but I'm sure if I would have thought about yummy Neapolitain ice cream, I likely wouldn't have struggled as much!

    Your design is perfectly clean and all the 'white' space that surrounds your elements! Lovely dimension in the layers of the heart. Awesome job pulling the colors from the DP and carrying them throught your card! The wee bit of twine - love it!

    Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at the first every Card Concept Challenge! We would love to have join us for challenge #2....I'm quite sure you are going to love it!!!
