Club Scrap: Challenge Card for "Can You Case It"

Today I am going to share a card that I created for: Can You Case It.
This weeks challenge is:
Purple, Kraft or tan, and white.  Well this months club kit is all about flowers and there was a gorgeous purple paper and cream colored paper in the kit.  Perfect!!  So off I went.  This was harder than expected.  I created many cards and none read as purple.  So for this posting I am going to show the only purple looking card that I was able to get to photograph as purple!

So, how did i create this?  If you follow ClubScrap Blog, you would know that Color Burst by Ken Oliver has been a hit over there.  I love pigment powders and had not tried this product so thought I would.  It is much harder to control the pigment and distribution with this product as the powder is so fine, but I did get a few backgrounds that I liked.  Trying to incorporate these busy backgrounds into a stamped project is a challenge so I chose to create flowers from he backgrounds.

I stamped the dahlia flower from the kit onto to background and cut them out.
Once finished I used a mica blend to fill in the centers.  I die cut some leaves from green paper and was ready to complete my card base.

First I made an A2 card base from Kraft that was top folded.  On a piece of white cardstock stamped stripes using the line stamp included in the Kit with Purple ink. I attached this to the bottom edge of the card.

Next, I cut a panel from the linen like paper that was included in the kit, and using a circle die, rounded the bottom.  This was placed over the stripes.  A sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with clear powder and attached over the stamped panel.  All that was left was to arrange the flowers and leaves.

Perfect card! Makes me think of spring.
All supplies are available through Club Scrap.
The stamp used was from the Weather Floral Unmounted Stamp Collection
I used Purple, Yellow, Red  and Blue Colorburst-Single-Colors .
Die cut for leaves, unknown.  I have an envelop full of random leaves from various manufacturers, most likely Spellbinders or Sizzix.  

Be sure and visit:  Can You Case It to see all the other cards made in this wonderful color combination.
Until Next time,
Happy Crafting
