Cute Card Thursday - Red and Teal Colour Scheme


Well todays card is rather a striking colour scheme but this is what Ive come up with. Ive used another of the Mo Manning Digi Stamps, this one is absolutely my hubbys favourite, he loves anything to do with trains, so thought this image was ideal for a birthday card for him.

Ive printed the image out and coloured it with my copic pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim, but before mounting it onto teal coloured pearlescent card I distressed the edge with a teal coloured inkpad. I also at the same time printed a sentiment greeting in teal from my computer and mounted this also onto a piece of the same coloured pearlescent card.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, with a piece of red pearlescent card for the first layer I have used one of the three papers from the Bearly Mine Cds that I printed off to use for the card. The second layer is a Teal coloured one and Ive used the engine border punch from Martha Stewart, on top of this is a third layer, this one is of another piece of the red card with a red piece of patterned paper stuck on it.

On top of this third layer I have stuck with foam tape the mounted image, under this I have also put the greeting. To finish of I have stuck four engine buttons across the bottom.
