Our Favorite Colors: Handmade Card Set

Hello, We R friends, Laura here today! I am sharing a fun card set I made with some of my current favorite colors – teal, blue, and pink. I think this color combination is so fun and the adorable Pink Paislee Wild Child Girl collection is perfect for this color theme.

To embellish the first card, I trimmed teal heart patterned paper from the Wild Child paper pad to fit on the card. I also trimmed a blue and a pink sheet of cardstock to 1 ¾” and then used the banner punch board to create flag shaped banner pieces.

I used the word punch board to spell out the word HELLO on a pretty floral paper. I used an extra piece of the blue cardstock behind the word so that the word showed up better on the card. I trimmed each end of the word with a v shape to mimic the banner pieces I already made.

I attached the hello sentiment to the top of the banner pieces.

I started creating the second card in the same way as I did for the first. I cut a piece of patterned guitar paper to fit on the card base. Then, I used the square punch board to create three mats for this cute cool cat die cut. The square punch board makes it so easy to cut perfectly sized squares and rectangles in so many sizes.

I added some twine around the patterned paper that reminded me a little bit of the guitar strings, and then added the guitar die cut using adhesive foam dots.

For the final card, I only used the Trim & Score board. I created the card base from teal cardstock. I added a teal and blue floral paper to the front of the card. I also added a blue cardstock strip along the bottom third of the card. I found a pink tag from the Wild Child ephemera set and added some twine to embellish the top.

Then, I attached a floral die cut using foam adhesive dots to give the card a little dimension.

I love this color combination of the teal, pink, and blue for these cards. They would be the perfect little set to give as a gift. You could even make coordinating envelopes to go with them using the envelope punch board! What is your favorite color combination?
