Currently there are two colour challenges on the Colour INKspiration Facebook group challenge. A Beach Christmas colour scheme for challenge CI22 and a Nordic Christmas colour scheme for challene CI23. This post is for colour challenge CI22.
The colours for challenge #23 are: Marina Mist, Sarah Sand, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede
It’s been a while since I’ve made a Card in a Box but I do like them very much. The were all the rage a few years ago so maybe it is time for a revival. This project was really quick to make. No stamps, no ink. Just paper.
I am trying to make a concerted effort to use retired items in my project. So this is no different. In this project I am using retired DSP and ribbon.
The box base is made from Sahara Sand card stock. To decorate the box I went through my DSP stash to find paper that went with the colour scheme for this challenge. I found some Marina Mist DSP which is retired and some DSP with Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White design from the Whole Lot of Love designer series.
I used the Home Town Greetings edgelits dies to cut the house out of Whisper White card stock, which I have backed with Soft Suede card stock to bring out the details
Last thing I added to give was some retired Whisper White ribbon and some rhinestones.
Used in this project:
