Good morning! I'm delighted to have been asked to be a guest designer on the Color Hues challenge blog this fortnight. It's been great to have a few new card challenges emerge in 2020 and this one has been a favorite. As a bonus, their Guest Designer badge is super fun. *wink*
I have really been loving their chosen color duos lately and this one lends itself to so many wonderful opportunities for designs.
I am in need of masculine cards for all occasions so I took the opportunity with these colors to create a simple one with some geometric layers.
Using just the two colors (no hues this time around) I began with a navy card base and a smaller panel of cream cardstock. Each of the plaid geometrics (there are two side by side) were cut from these same two colors. There are three layers to each mini panel which I stacked by alternating the two colors. I adhered the two layered mini panels side by side to span my panel and centered them top to bottom on the card front. I added a die cut sentiment/shadow using the same two cardstocks and finished it off with a sub-sentiment, heat embossed in cream over the navy. I really had to reign myself in and NOT add any drops, dots, jewels and/or bling to this card as that would have totally defeated my purpose. (And hence is why I have so few masculine cards. My desire to bling is too great. LOL!)
