Colour Creation - Cajun Craze
Hi Everyone, we are now up to week 8 of the colour creations blog hop. This week the colour is Cajun Craze, a rusty brown colour with very rich tones. The card I have designed this week is called a Criss Cross card, but this card doesn't stand up on it's own. I don't like cards that have to balance on the side so that you can view them, so I designed a stand that is attached to the back of the card. It will lay flat in your envelope for posting.
 I used the "Rooted in Nature" Bundle and "Natures Poem" D.S.P.
I layered my Very Vanilla card onto Cajun Craze card stock of my pull out insert. I also used my layering circles to make the sentiment for the front of the card, and stamped my leaves and cut them out using the dies and big shot.
There is plenty of space on the insert so that if you would like to add a gift card as well a write you messages you can.

Here you can see the stand that I made for the back of the card so that is stands alone. All the items used to make this card are in the 2018 - 2019 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase any or all of these items please give me a call I would love to help you. Don't forget there is still time to join my team with the great July special. I will be posting a tutorial for this card in early August on my Facebook group. "Di's Den for Stamping Crafting and Tutorials" so keep a look out for it.
Hugs Diane

  1. Gee, you're a clever clogs! The stand on the back is a great idea. Your card is lovely - that bundle works really well in Cajun Craze.

  2. Diane, your card is beautiful. Rooted in Nature and Nature’s Poem DSP is a great combination and looks lovely on your card.

  3. This colour is made for Rooted in Nature isn't it Diane? Your card really shows both colour and stamps off to great advantage. That's a clever stand you have at the back too.

  4. Great card Diane and I love the clever stand you made for it too! I like the idea of a pull out card and there's plenty of room to write on as well.

  5. Love the stand for the card. Any tips on how you made it?

    1. The Stand is very easy to make I will post it on my blog during the week and I will be adding this card tutorial to my Facebook group next Sunday.

  6. Aren't you clever creating the stand on the back so it stands up! Great us of Cajun Craze with the Nature's Poem DSP.

  7. Wow Diane that is so cute and so clever...I love your stand! Could you share how to make it? Thanks for hopping along with the colour creations blog hop!
