Bright Three Color Card

Do you ever shy away from using certain colors in Stampin’ Up!s color families? I sure do. 
This particular card is one I’ve designed for an October mail-in swap I’m participating in. I challenged myself to use some newer colors to see what I could come up with. 

I started with cutting up a 6” x 6” sheet of the 2020-22 InColor Designer Series Paper (DSP) stack to create 4 equal polygons. I played with arrangement, color combos, and pattern until I created something that made me happy. 

The winning color scheme is Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Bumblebee along with the two rose sheets from the Flowers for Every Season 6” x 6”  DSP.  In addition to those items, I also used the Ridicuously Awesome stamp set, Just Jade Ink, Magenta Madness cardstock, Just Jade cardstock, Just Jade 1/4” ribbon,  Duet Butterfly Punch, Champagne Rhinestones, Stitched Shapes Dies, Layering Circles Dies, and a Whisper White card base.

How to cut the 6x6 DSP is easy. Use a pencil and ruler and measure 1-1/2” from the lower right corner and make a tick mark. Rotate the paper 90 degrees then repeat process 3 more times. With your pencil and ruler draw a line connecting the 2 opposite marks and then rotate the paper 90 degrees and draw a second line connecting the remaining two marks. With your paper trimmer slice the paper on the drawn lines to create the 4 pieces.

You will be able to make four cards from this process. It’s a great way to use up old Designer Series Paper and still create beautiful cards.

I hope you enjoyed this design idea.
