Colour Challenge - Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede and Grapefruit Grove

Today's the day I post a colour challenge for you and a card that I made using these colours.  Today the colours are:

I had a specific stampset in mind when I decided on this colour combination - Rooted in Nature, but didn't know what the card would be.  Sympathy cards are always hard, but Rooted in Nature works really well.

Here's the card I designed.


  1. Cut Soft Suede cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Grapefruit Grove cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  4. Tap Block D onto Soft Suede ink pad and then stamp off twice by tapping gently on paper.  Now press Block D onto the Whisper White cardstock.
  5. Stamp tree in Shaded Spruce in the middle of Soft Suede square.
  6. Stamp sentiment in Shaded Spruce
  7. Wrap Nature's Twine around card three times and adhere to back with Snail.
  8. Adhere Whisper White cardstock to Grapefruit Grove cardstock with Snail
  9. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  10. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  11. Stamp sentiment in Grapefruit Grove and tree in Shaded Spruce
  12. Adhere to inside of card using Snail
