Teal and Yellow

Hi there -

It has been at least a year since I took an online cardmaking class.  Kelly Latevola is teaching a class over at Altenew Academy.  Its a great price point, and the title is  One Layer Wonders.  I've long been a fan of Kelly's coloring - so I had to take this class.  My homework will be a case of the day's lesson. I might have to switch out some stamps, but it will be very similar - so I cannot take any design credit.

While my card is a focal panel layered on a colored base, the focal point is one layer.  This was a fun and relaxing card to make---up until I made a wonky cut with the die.  But, hey  I am a little wonky too. SO I am going with the resulting slight banner tilt.

I really like the appearance of the raised sentiment banner across the card front. Its a cool trick.




The interactive portion of class runs through 6/26/18.  But of course you can take it anytime.  The interactive portion is merely the chat options in the forums; the galleries appear to be open forever.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is really pretty. I like how the background looks like fabric.

So pretty--love the multiple matching colors for the sentiment! PS--just took a break from some catching up to do the blogger fix--yah!
