Happy Birthday UDI25 CAS Color Challenge

Today I’ve got another Utah Divas International Color Challenge CAS Card to share with you!  With a Happy Birthday theme, this card features  rich razzleberrry, tempting turquoise, perfect plum, so saffron, basic gray, and Whisper White Card Stock. 

That’s a lot of color for one card, isn’t it? But they all work well together with stunning results in a CAS design!  I look forward to viewing all the other color challenge card submissions by design team members!  Can’t wait to see what they come up with!

Here’s my Clean and Simple (CAS) card for the UDI25 color challenge:


Panels of Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum, and Tempting Turquoise Card Stock were embossed using a big shot machine and the Elegant Bouquet Textured Embossing Folder. 

Each of these embossed ‘panels’ measure 1.5” x 3.25”, after highlighting the embossed design with Whisper White Craft ink using small swirling motion and a sponge dauber, they were mounted in a staggered fashion to the Square Lattice embossed Whisper White background with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Happy Birthday was stamped in Basic Gray ink onto a 1/2” x 5-1/4” piece of So Saffron card stock, and then mounted on a 1-5/8” x 5-1/4” strip of Basic Gray Card Stock.

A mat pack and paper piercing tool were used to pierce through both card stock layers, and perfectly place the Basic Gray Neutrals Brads. 

TIP:  Use the pointed end of the Paper Piercing Tool to gently spread the brad legs or prongs apart before flattening to secure to the card stock.

The assemblage was mounted with stampin’ dimensionals to the front of the card/panels.

Want to play along and share your creative talents?  We’d love to see your work.  Simply upload your UDI25 creation to your blog or an online gallery (splitcoast stampers, photobucket, flickr, etc) and then visit the Utah Divas International Design Team Blog to link your work!

Pretty card Sharon. I like your color panels. I think these were really hard colors together, however, it is called a challenge!!
