CAS Colours and Sketches #407

We're back with another color challenge over at the CAS Colours and Challenge blog.  After my choice of bold colors two weeks ago I thought I'd go with a much softer color trio this time around.  I hope you like them. 

For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors; 
however, the challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. 
We use Stampin' Up  color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' 
products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible.     

I created an extremely minimalistic card this time around.  I mean, we are talking Clean and Simple to the max.  

I wanted a 'white on white' baby card and began my card by first die cutting a trio of baby clothes three times each.  I stacked the die cuts and arranged them on a white card panel cut slightly smaller than A2 size.  I stamped the sentiment in a crisp black pigment ink before adhering the clothes to my card front.  I used some Distress Oxide inks to blend out some colored cardstocks to get the shades shown in our challenge graphic and then die cut three tiny images (one per challenge color) to decorate my clothing.  I adhered the finished panel to a blended gray card panel and then adhered this to a white card base.

What do you think?  I really love the crisp white baby laundry and can almost smell tiny newborns.  :-)

  1. Julie this is adorable! And you're right - I can almost smell warm fuzzy babies and clean laundry! Using just a touch of the colours was a brilliant idea.

    CAS to the max? I think you have forgotten that one layer cards exist, lol!!

  2. Oh yes, that fragrance of Ivory Snow laundry detergent? Remember it well! Yes, Julie, that newborn baby fragrance, too!
    This is a fabulous little load of baby clothes!

  3. I think this is quite awesome! Love the super-clean design.

  4. Julie this card is so sweet! The colors work so well for a baby card - a nice change from the usual pastels. Much more sophisticated. Great card!

  5. Julie this is so adorable and an absolute CAS triumph! I love the little details on the baby clothes and you're right - I can almost smell the fresh laundry and that unmistakable baby smell!

  6. Julie, this is so gorgeous!! When I see this card at CC&S, I fell in love.
