This week, the Global Design Project challenge is to use three colors in a cardmaking project. The idea is to create a card design that will feature these colors. Being as Spring is right around the corner, I wanted to use the Daffodils from Basket Builder & Basket Bunch stamps, and it will fit this challenge very well.

The need to use specific colors led me to the elements in this project. Daffodils are yellow and fit the need perfectly. The rest came together in a snap! I used Thick Whisper White card stock for the card base in order to carry the Designer Series Paper. The grass die cuts are from Emerald Envy card stock. I used two die cuts to give texture and depth to the card.
The flowers and greenery were first stamped onto card stock scraps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This ink works well when using watercolors or a Blender Pen. After giving it time to dry, I used ink pads and a Blender Pen to fill the images with color. They were then ready to die cut and let me tell you, using dies for these small images was a dream come true! So easy to color and cut out that it went together very fast.
The sentiment is made from Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits. Making a place holder for a sentiment has never been so easy. The Stitched Shapes give that polished look that makes a project feel great. The larger oval was cut from Shimmery White card stock to echo the shine of the sequins.

Whisper White card stock: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (top folded and scored from 4 1/4″ x 11″)
