Altenew Educator Certification Program | Color Your Day

Hey friends!

I’m back to share another card with you today. This project was created after I completed the Color Your Day course over at Altenew Academy. This course was all about different ways to incorporate color into your projects. I love all things colorful, so this was a fun one for me!

I decided to build on the ’70/20/10′ method mentioned in one of the course videos and see if I could stick to it. In this method, you use 70% of one color for your card, 20% of another, and 10% of a third. I’m not great at proportions, but I tried to stick to a general feel of that formula.

I started by stamping the Gradient Stripes background stamp in Jet Black Ink on to a piece of white card stock with my Original MISTI. I stamped it once on a piece of scrap paper and then used the second generation for my card panel to get a more muted color.

Next, I moved on to my cupcake. Yum! I stamped the outline image from Layered Cupcake and colored it with alcohol markers. I used the turquoise as my 20% color. I fussy cut the cupcake and popped it up on some foam tape for dimension. I added a little black thread behind it as well.

I chose the ‘for my sweet friend’ sentiment because it can be used for a birthday or any time. I heat embossed it in white on a piece of black card stock and popped that up on foam as well. I used the black as my 10% color.

Just for a little sparkle, I added clear sequins and mounted the card panel on a white A2 sized card base. That finished off my card. I love how this one turned out and I can’t wait to hear what you think. Leave me a comment and let me know!

Hugs and love,
