CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 247 - The Double

October this year has five Tuesdays in it, so Emma's last challenge for the month is a double one. A colours and a sketch combination.

All of the colours above are retired, some even before I'd even heard of Stampin' Up! This means that I don't have them in my ink collection. Instead, I have opted to go for the following, which I think are the closest current ones.

I also decided to make a standard UK size A6 card instead of a square one like that in the sketch.

Floral Phrases, Wedding, Congratulations

I used the Floral Phrases stamp set for this card. The top strip is made from a 2.0 cm wide piece of Marina Mist and I stamped the image in Marina Mist too. 

The bottom strip is a 2.0 cm wide piece of Sahara Sand on which I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I then added the little Real Red Enamel Heart from the Brights Enamel Shapes.

I cheated a little with the inside of the card and simply used a die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to cut out the strip of hearts from the piece of Whisper White. This means that the Real Red card base shows through the cute little cut out hearts. Much quicker and easier than stamping a whole row!

Don't forget to check out all the projects from the design team over on the CC&S Blog. The link to add your entry for the challenge can also be found there.
