Inspired by the colour of the year: magenta!

The Pantone colour of the year is Magenta, and it inspired this trio of cards. The closest coloured cardstock I had in my stash is Hero Hues Azalea, which is more of a fuchsia pink than magenta, but I went with it and love how these three cards turned out. When creating with bold colours I like to choose a colour to soften and contrast against it and I think the colours paired beautifully with it. So let’s get started!

Inspired by the colour of the year

Start with die-cutting the foliage to go onto the front of the card. I used 3 die-sets to create added variation, but you can use just one set if you prefer. Here die-cut Sealed Blooms, Sealed Flowers and Sealed Leaf Sprigs from Spellbinders out of Azalea, Nautical and Peony Hero Hues cardstock.

 Add the flower die-cuts to the leaf springs with contrasting colours to make them pop. To create the backgrounds, you can use glimmer plates to dry emboss without foil do subtle tone-on-tone texture. 

Dry emboss using the correct sandwich on your die-cutting machine the PinkFresh Studio Geo Arch Hot Foil plate with Nautical Hero Hues cardstock. Trim this down and to a card base out of the same colour.

Using Altenew Metallic 14 Pan watercolour set, add gold paint splatters to the cardbase. With a piece of black twine, create a bouquet of die-cuts in a mix of colours, making sure the colour of cardbase is less frequent in each bouquet. Adhere each bouquet onto the cardbase with liquid glue. 

Heat emboss 3 sentiments from the Versatile Vases 2 stamp set onto strips of contrasting coloured cardstock and foam mount onto the front of the cards.  Lastly, embellish with gold sequin discs to finish the card.
