Welcome Friends (Color Throwdown 100)

9 Jul

Although the Color Throwdown challenge blog is celebrating their 100th challenge. CONGRATS!!! It’s a first for me. I often visit but just never set my mind to it. Today was the beginning of something new, I loved it. Here is the challenge:

I gathered cardstocks and this is what I chose. (The lower right corner shows the pages for the guest book.)

I created a guest book for friends who are newly married and have a cute little apartment. I thought it would be fun for their marriage as they adventure through life.

This was fun to put together. I began cutting: rose background squares, red scalloped oval, celery oval, blue border…

To create the blue border, I first cut/embossed the s4-244 Fair Isle Borderabilities® Petite. Then I airbrushed through the stencil holes.

to get this…

I cut the border into four pieces… in half vertically and horizontally. I made two identical borders to go all the way around the 6×6″ square cover.

I used a long rectangular stamper from JustRite™ to stamp “WELCOME” in the celery oval. Then I stamped the friends stamp with a border onto the blue cardstock and cut/embossed it with the S4-194 Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles LG. I gave the ink a bit of sparkle with a blue glitter pen.

I adhered all the pieces, punched the coil holes, added the coil binding and finished it with ribbons. Voila! Gift is ready.
