Happy Birthday blocks

Sunday, June 19, 2016

I have seen lots of cards out there which use a technique called "colour blocking" and have been wanting to try it for a while.  I finally had some inspiration and although the end result was different to the cards I had commonly seen (where they have put images inside the blocks rather than what I did which was to place the sentiment over multiple blocks) I think it turned out really well.  Don't you?  I'm going to try some other types of colour blocking soon because I just love the crisp clean lines and the no-fuss look of the card.

 

Fiona's notes
  • The trickiest thing about this card is getting the blocks the right size.  Unfortunately I have no tips, I just winged it!  I'd love to hear some easier ways to be able to get it right quickly and easily.
  • I picked the colours from the It's My Party DSP because it's one of my favourite colour combinations.  I just LOVE how they look together.
  • For that extra "oumph" I embossed the sentiment.

Stamps: Sunburst Sayings  Inks: Memento Black, Versamark  Papers: Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry  Accessories: Black Embossing Powder, Stampin Dimensionals
