In Colors

I made this awhile ago, but forgot to post about it. I wanted to play around with the new In Colors and this is what I came up with! I also knew that I wanted to play with the new set Fresh Cuts. I love the background in this stamp set!
I got this color combo from the Mix It Up Chart (posted below and I will add it to my sidebar) basic Black, Riding Hood red, Kiwi Kiss and taken with Teal. I don't use Taken with Teal very often, so I thought it would be fun to step a little outside my comfort zone! Haha....
I started by stamping the background image in VersaMark onto riding hood red cardstock. I then embossed it with Black Embossing powder and trimmed it down and layered it with Kiwi kiss. I then added dimensionals and adhered it to a layer of taken with teal cardstock.
I stamped "for you" in teal on Kiwi Kiss and punched it out using the small oval punch. I also punched a piece of Riding Hood Red with the Large Oval and layered it with the sentiment piece.
I grabbed my Crop-a-dile and punched a hole on each end to thread Basic Black grosgrain through and adhered it to the back of the Taken with Teal layer before adhering it to the basic Black card base. Not my favorite card, but it works! Thanks for stopping by!

I love this card Gina! I can't wait until I have enough money that I can invest in the new colors. :0) I am just going to have to stay away from your blog until I have the money. ;0)
