Cucumber Crush In Color Club Cards
Today, I'm sending out kits to our In Color Club Group #2 and it reminded me that I have yet to share the final color cards featuring Cucumber Crush! This bright & cheery green is really growing on me and I can see how awesomely it combines with all of the other Brights Collection colors! And, I can't wait to try it on some Christmas cards!
Join The In Color Club—Are you still interested in purchasing the In Colors in a budget-friendly way? I have a wait-list for Group #3 of my In Color Club. Not only do you get all of the colors over 5 months, you also receive supplies to make 20 cards with the new colors! See complete In Color Club details. Let me know if you're interested in joining our next round!
Background Basics—I started by embossing a 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” piece of Cucumber Crush with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder. That layer is adhered to a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Basic Black, then mounted on on a Whisper White card base.
Striped Banner—I punched the end of a 1-1/2” x 4-1/2” piece of Cucumber Crush Envelope Paper with the Banner Triple Punch for a fish-tail banner. Have I told you how much I love this punch?! It makes banners so quick & easy!
Sweet Sentiments—I stamped the Perfect Pennants greeting in Cucumber Crush onto Whisper White card stock, then die-cut it with the Circles Collection Framelits. It's adhered to a Basic Black 2-1/2” Circle Punch and popped up with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—A couple of simple accents finish off this card. I added a Black Baker's Twine bow with a dab of Multipurpose Glue along the bottom of the circle. For a little sparkle, I adhered a small Silver Glimmer Paper star punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. It's adhered with Multipurpose Glue, too.
Two Cool—I used the same elements here and stamped a different sentiment from the Perfect Pennants set.
Three Cool—Another version using the same elements, but this time I tried a Merry Everything greeting.
Four Cool—For the last card, I tried a horizontal version with a congratulatory phrase from the Bravo set.
