October 2021 Color Challenge

October 2021 Color Challenge

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop and October 2021 Color Challenge!

The color scheme for the October 2021 Color Challenge is Just Jade, Evening Evergreen, and Cajun Craze and I just love it! It was so fun to play with this color scheme to create todays fun fold card featuring the Intricate Leaves Dies & Pattern Party Designer Paper.

Check out the October 2021 Color Challenge & Blog Hop! My fun fold card features the Intricate Leaves Dies & Pattern Party Designer Paper.

This card is a lot easier than you might think!

It required a bunch of die-cutting, some simple scoring, and one simple cut. Here’s what the card looks like open and laying flat. The white panel is hidden when the card is folded up and the designer paper that is cajun craze becomes hidden when the card is laying flat as you see here.

Each of these designer paper panels started as simple black and white patterns. The color was added using Blending Brushes. The panel on the left is colored with Just Jade ink; The middle panel shown in the photo above is colored with Cajun Craze Ink; The panel on the right is colored using Evening Evergreen ink.

To get started making this card you simply need a piece of cardstock that measures 8-1/2″ x 9″.

I like to score my full-size piece first and then do my diagonal cut. When you cut the piece as shown in the graphic below you’ll have two card bases.

Next, you’ll cut strips of designer paper at three different heights. You’ll need four panels in total, three for one side and one for the backside. For my card, I used three designer paper panels and one cardstock panel. In the graphic below I used two designer paper panels and two cardstock panels.

For the left and right side panels, I’ve created an embellishment with a bunch of die-cut pieces made with the Intricate Leaves Dies. White Crinkled seam binding was used for the bows. For the bow shown here, I used a Cajun Craze Blends Alcohol Marker to color the ribbon before tieing into a bow.

The ribbon for this bow was colored with a Just Jade Blends Alcohol Marker.
