The colour we're creating with, for this week's Colour Creations blog hop, is Calypso Coral.

A friend asked me to make a selection of cards using woodland creatures.  This is one of the cards I made her, using Calypso Coral and Sahara Sand, and Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper.  

The bear, fox and bird were all fussy-cut from a piece of the DSP.  I cut a Basic White circle, using a Beautiful Shapes Die.  Using my Stamparatus, and Stampin' Write Markers in Calypso Coral and Sahara Sand, I stamped hearts from the Celebrate With Tags stamp set.

I layered the circle on a Calypso Coral scalloped circle, cut using Layering Circles Dies.  Iridescent Rhinestones, coloured with the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends marker, were added to my card in a couple of places.

This close-up shows the lovely texture and softness of the Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon.

After stamping the sentiment, from Artistically Inked, in Calypso Coral ink on Basic White card, I cut it out using a Labels Aglow Die.

  6. Such a cute card Christine. Love your layering of DSP and labels with the lovely fussy cut critters and the delightful ribbon. Beautiful. Xxx

  7. Great way to make a card using mainly DSP, so beautifully co-ordinated, and showing off Calypso Coral in the best possible way.

  8. Oh your card is just so cute Christine! I have to say I really admire someone who can fussy cut as well as you do, you know how much I avoid it! I love the imprint on the white circle panel as it just adds another dimension. That sentiment fits perfectly on the Labels Aglow die too.
